Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have read quite a few self-help books, as usually they are full of common sense and can provide something that is of help. However, I must admit that I found this one hard-going. The general advice is pretty sound- though not groundbreaking, but I found the way it was written was a bit 'text-book' for my taste. As a result, I found my attention drifting as I read through each chapter (perhaps I need a self-help book on concentration?)
The book tries to create a balance between mood and science, which is not bad in itself, but when reading this type of book i like it to sound 'chatty' rather than preachy. I suppose these books are what you make of them, and some might like this particular one - but I have read better....

The title is pretty compelling for this book and makes quite a commitment to the reader.
Chapters encompassed - Challenge your thinking, Anger, Distress, Unhappiness, Wellbeing, Self Esteem … The order of these wasn't entirely structured in a logical sequence. So I felt this didn't provide a very smooth, evolving, engaging read.
The language seemed jagged; as if it had been written by several people and edited by others. Some sentences just didn't make much sense to me or were illustrated by such peculiar descriptions I felt excluded, confused and even, dare I say, a bit angry! I work with many people with mood and neurological disorders and issues around depression, anxiety and anger. With this experience I think the book is far too shallow and in places rather condescending. People would be reading this book for support, maybe as an adjunct to therapy or counselling. It sets about defining various feelings at a very basic level and then associated beliefs or attitudes to set the scene. So you skim through that to get to the support and advice and in my mind the book lacks depth. In some cases a lot of this information is common sense. I think there are other publications that will provide more depth, more useful illustrations of self-help and overall guidance.
I asked a colleague to skim through a few chapters and give me their feedback: "a lot of this is stating the obvious - these people need practical support - they're not thick". Rather similar to my own opinion. To get to page 197 and read "You need to let go of old habits" was rather an anti-climax. Maybe the authors were trying to tackle too much in one book? But I don't believe it promises all the title says.

I have clinical depression and anxiety. Because of that, I quite enjoy self-help books and find them both entertaining and useful. Having said that, I do appreciate that if they were as useful as they claim to be then perhaps I wouldn’t continue to buy them! Despite this, as always, I was ever hopeful that this book provided that ‘ah-ha’ moment

Unfortunately that moment did not come from this particular book.

As well as the usual foreword, bibliography, index etc, the book is split into 11 chapters. These are: “How Are You?”, Challenge Your Thinking, Anger, Self-Efficacy, Distress, Unhappiness, Well-being and Happiness, Self-Esteem, Leading A Balanced Lifestyle, Relaxation Techniques and Where to From Here?.

My first problem is that I didn’t really think that the chapters were in the correct order. It was sort of like they are trying to solve the problems without first finding out what the problems were or how they came to be. It was very much, to my thinking, like the plaster approach - pop a plaster over the wound and it’s sorted despite the fact that the injury will happen again and again because the irritant is still there.

The writing style was fine although at times it seemed a little too practical rather than being upbeat. I also felt that the topics were skimmed rather than being developed in any depth. There were techniques that are fairly standard and I have read about time and time again (in other books and on the internet in general). This might be fine if this is the first book you’ve ever picked up on the subject but perhaps only then. As another viewer pointed out, there were particular parts of the book that were downright depressing and made me feel a little worse than I had when I started the book.

I started with this book quite enthusiastically, as I had been feeling stressed and this looked like a good general handbook for people with minor mood issues. I went through the first few chapters diligently, underlining significant bits and doing all the exercises. But it is so peculiarly written that I kept getting pulled out of it, completely unable to understand what the authors meant. For example, pages 47-48: "As a person ages, into the critical years of emerging adulthood, expressed anger declines and factors such as a parent's education and conflict with your parent are important buffers. Expressed anger improves fastest in participants with more educated parents and also for those with greater conflict". I have no idea what he is trying to say here. What is expressed anger? What does he mean when he says it improves- is it MORE expressed, or LESS expressed? He seems to be saying it is good to have educated parents, and good to be in an environment with lots of conflict. That seems to be a bizarre and contradictory statement, which is not explained. Another very random example, from page 118: "It is easy to walk into your bedroom and see that someone has left a towel on the bed. However, what is more difficult is to walk into the bedroom and tell an observer that there was a towel on the bed and now it is gone. We can do this with our goals." I have no idea what he is going on about here.

I had been looking forward to the chapter on anger, because I have found myself getting quite angry and frustrated about small things recently. But the chapter was not helpful to me- it seemed to be addressing violent people only, and basically said that if you don't break things or hurt other people then your anger is fine and normal. I keep my anger inside.
