5.0 out of 5 stars Really good one 5 Oct 2005
By A Customer
This is a great book, I really enjoyed reading. It tells you what causes worries (including prolonged worries) and how to deal with that.
So, most of the worries are caused by either obvious or hidden problems. The book tells you how to find the roots of the problems and offers the methods of finding solutions for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars quality information 31 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this is one of the best self-help books I have read, now I am really hooked. The author is not some guy who just tells you 'you are a Divine being' or 'The Universe is out there to nourish you' and such crap. Now that I have read this little book, I really want to find more books like these, they are about psychology and things that you can USE, not fluff. Also, this book is so short ,concise and unassuming that I first thought 'this must be one of these books like these that claim that you can learn to play piano in a week'. Well, I was TOTALLY wrong. This little book is packed with great info, written by an expert in his field. Also, although a psychology book, it's very easy to read, very unbiased and non-academic. The publishing house, Press Sheldon, is PACKED with many books like these, and they treat a wide range of topics. I have already bought a bunch of them, and I have found some of them on amazon for PEANUTS

5.0 out of 5 stars books that changed my life if not the wotld 5 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book along with two similar books;"overcoming anxiety" and "overcoming irritation and anger" as I have been having issues as they say for some time, All three books suggest a series of insights and exercises to deal with the problems,based on "cognative thinking" basi cally meaning being aware of why you are in the situation you find yourself in,what triggers it off,what makes it worse,and how being aware of the nature of the problem enables you to resolve it.
Reading these books i am amazed at how they exactly plot and map my owb problems and also my own insights as to how they arise and develop and also how to deal with them. the latter I have been told by friends and family for sometime but sometimes it works better if such advice comes from a neutral source;I find.In conclusion the books are working for me even before I have finished them.I can't reccomend them too highly.As they say the best couple of bob I ever spent!
