How my balls got so big
Psychological strategies for effective living, self esteem and self defence.

If you remove the title, the out of date chapter on SSRIs, and a misguided paragraph about AA being an effective antidote to addiction (rather than taking credit for the standard alcoholic non-recidivism rate) then this book is actually a rather good take on how to be a more rounded, happy, successful person by learning how to handle your own fear and anger responses in high stress situations whether it's a boardroom or bar room brawl.

What it is is actually a very concise summary of cognitive behavioural therapy and the kind of self defence training that trains you with realistic fighting scenarios and high stress emotional states. I covered these subjects and high stress training in my own book How to Drive a Tank: and Other Everyday Tips for the Modern Gentleman but this has a very neat summary of the main points that I know I'll be referring to at a later stage because they're really rather good.

Some other books you might want to look at are The Book of Five Rings (with linked TOC) which the author recommends for understanding the adrenalised time-dilated states you experience with violence and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Workbook For Dummies (For Dummies (Lifestyles Paperback)) would be my own recommendation for furthering your work with CBT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Freedom from Fear, 7 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Freedom from Fear: Taking Back Control of Your Life and Dissolving Depression (Paperback)
Peyton Quinn's book is an honest and helpful look at ways of dealing with stress. It looks at the root causes and modes of thinking that enhance difficult situations, and shows that we cannot always avoid these situations but we can change the way we deal with them.
