Throughout my personal journey of defeating a life that was full of misery, pessimism and fear, I always avoided self help books. After my two year battle with severe depression through numerous counseling sessions and also CBT, I finally beat it, my life became full of happiness and my outlook onto life was positive. However, I still felt that my old demons were somehow holding me back, preventing me from truly working towards my goals. I suppose after such a long fight, waking up relatively happy is a dream in comparison. I bought this book about 1 month ago, as I was tired with never feeling like I was truly improving myself or fulfilling my life long dreams.

I can't speak highly enough about this book. Since I've bought it, my entire outlook has altered dramatically! I have probably put more into meeting my goals in the past month than I had in 3 years.

The book is positive, easy to read and at parts even humorous! I have become a fanatic about this book and am now expanding my self help library as this book really sold the concept to me. You really do take away what you want from this book, some chapters will apply more directly to others, but overall, it's a simple and effective way to alter how you think and how you approach life. Some people may disagree, however, I strongly believe that if you are willing to change your life and truly want amazing things to appear both in your personal attitude and others' towards you, then please buy this book!

I had heard of this book often enough, but never read it. As they say when the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear. If you are really struggling with your life this book will give you heart, if you have been working on yourself it will remind you of all that you have learnt and prompt you to keep it up. So what is it all about? Firstly, it points out that everybody gets fearful, but that some people rise to the challenges they face more positively than others and so succeed in their lives, while others just seem to shrink, becoming more and more overwhelmed by everything. This book shows you how to turn your thoughts around to the positive, to switch off your inner nag and just get on with life. It isn't corny, it isn't gimmicky, but it is truly uplifting and calming, and it works. Last night my dishwasher broke and rather than get into a stew about finding the time to get it repaired and the expense etc as I would have done I just remembered ' I'll handle it' and got it sorted. This is a fairly trivial example, but those of us who are prone to worry and anxiety, are easily overwound by the most mundane things, so it is so good to have some tools to get life into the right perspective.

Format: Paperback
This book is about the fears that we all have in our lives to some degree. Fear of failing. Fear of succeeding. Fear of decisions. Fear of aging, of loss or of helplessness.
The books basic premise is, that your aim should not be to get rid of your fears. You should feel your fear, but not let it stop you from doing things you really want to do.
The book describes three levels of fear. The first level is the actual event that you fear - say losing you job. The second level is the deeper fear, triggered by the first level - eg. rejection (if being fired would make you feel rejected). Beneath that on the third level there's only one fear: The fear that you won't be able to cope. If you knew in advance that you could take it, there would be nothing to be afraid of. So all fear reduces to fear of not being able to cope.
This is interesting, because this means that the best way to handle your fear, isn't to make your life safer - it's to increase your abilities, or your faith in your abilities. The more you know you can handle, the less reason there is to fear.
This point is illustrated with several stories of people who have diminished their lives time and again, to keep safe. This doesn't reduce fear, quite the contrary, these people lived in perpetual fear. When some catastrophic event interfered with their reduced existence (say the death of a spouse), some of these people found that they were forced to reconnect with life, and that they could cope. And this reduced their fear.
The book also emphasizes positivity as a way to reduce fear. The book argues that you need to constantly train your positive thinking, or you'll revert to negative thinking.

Format: Paperback
Many years ago my life was terrible and I felt helpless to do anything to change that. I kept buying self-help books but none of them helped me to find a way out. This is the last self-help book I ever read, and it is the only one I ever recommend to friends. It made me realise that reading self-help books compulsively was just procrastination - making me think that by reading them I was actually changing my life. This book broke that cycle for me. I read it, put the book down, got up, felt the fear, and did what needed to be done to change my life completely. At last I discovered what truly made me happy. I have never regretted what I did. Susan Jeffers helped to give me the courage to save my life.

Deep down we all know what we need to do to save ourselves, but are paralysed by fear. This book is all we need. Read it. Do it.
