Publisher's Summary

A no-nonsense and helpful guide on how to cope with a slew of mental-health issues that are hell-bent on ruining the lives of millions of people worldwide

Our brains do their best to help us out, but every so often they can be real assholes - having meltdowns, getting addicted to things, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. Your brain knows it's not good to do these things, but it can't help it sometimes - especially if it's obsessing about trauma it can't overcome. That's where this life-changing book comes in.

With humor, patience, science, and lots of good-ole swearing, Dr. Faith explains what's going on in your skull, and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life, and to deal effectively with old, or newly acquired, traumas (particularly post-traumatic stress disorder).

Pragmatic and easy to grasp

Riddled with swear words and a bit of ... fluff, the book does give some good nitty gritty science info whilst being broken down with some more... "shallow" language and terminology.
Has some fantastic concepts and a great into for anyone wanting to go down the path of self help as one of their first books.

The audio of being filmed with less than ideal sound proofing, you hear pages turn and a slight room echo.

Painful

Bad overall. Would return it if I could. Preachy and trying to hard to be "hip with the kids lingo". Really negative experience with this book. Would not recommend it to anyone.

Untuck this recording quality

The echoey recording disrupts the delivery. Audible - have some standards and get this thing re recorded.

This is a smart person - with useful info -that was recorded in a do it yourself manner.

The crap quality of recording matters - audible-wtf?

Horrible sound quality. Horrible.

Reading is difficult right now so I use audible. This book is useful, but I can never recommend the audible version because the sound is so horrible. I wonder how the author would feel if a recording engineer was out there trying to pass as a therapist. It’s almost impossible to listen to. It sound like she’s in a warehouse, edits are obvious (the including clipped words, the ambient sound is stressful — like a bad smell, the background noises, and even extra voices(!) now and then, are distracting. I hope she re-does it properly soon so I can recommend this recording. Her voice is fine, the sound quality is, yes, horrible — as if she just turned on her computer and started talking. No excuse for this except ignorance - it’s too easy to record decent sound nowadays. If I sound angry, well, that’s probly why I need this book. Look forward to when I can hear it.

Audio quality is awful.

The audio quality was so awful that it distracted me from all other qualities of this book. It sounds like it was recorded on someone’s cell phone. I got 2 hours into the book and couldn’t handle it anymore. The

works

If you're struggling with anxiety, this book really does work. Fancy Dr. lady actually gives you helpful ways to say "screw you anxiety! I don't F with you" I wish the quality of the audio was better, but small price to pay when anxiety rules your life like it did mine.

Poor Audio Quality

Unfortunately this wasn't recorded with good/professional equipment and sounds like someone is yelling at you from across the room on speaker phone. very unpleasant to listen to. The information isn't especially helpful for anyone already familiar with therapy and a mindfulness about their behavior. Again the audio is a big drag

Poor quality and performance

It sounds like the author recorded this in a bathroom. Terrible sound quality. And while I am far from a prude and recognized from the title there would be explicit language, it is so completely overdone that it distracts from the material. There were some passages with so many curse words that everything else was lost in between. Completely ridiculous & unnecessary.

Good content, terrible audio

I picked up some good info from the book, plus a few insightful things that will help me moving forward. Faith G.Harper is very likeable but the audio quality is awful! It’s like she’s recorded it in the bath under the water and it’s poorly edited. I’m not sure how this could be charged as a whole credit, I get one credit a month so paid £8 for this - not worth it.

Narration was great. some of these audiobooks sound like they are being read by a robot. This was not one of those!
