Feel massively ripped off.
It just doesn't get started. The whole book is an intro with no real substance. Ptttf!
Sometimes bad stuff happens and it will totally ruin your life/ mood/ day, and yet the author would say that this reaction is solely your own fault.
What could have been a decent realistic self help book was undermined massively by this naive pink and fluffy outlook.
I was impressed with her ideas that I bought her follow up book, "Feel the Fear and Beyond", and think the same of it.
It’s also a myth that social anxiety disappears with repeated exposure to the perceived threat - another key premise of the book. People who fear public speaking have often spent a lifetime doing it - ie feeling the fear but doing it anyway - but they find that it never really gets any easier for them. They remain chronically over-sensitive to audience reactions and simply can’t shrug this off in a carefree way. In truth they need a different kind of help because their core personality is not going to change.
The real damage done by books like this that peddle the myth of positive thinking is that they influence medical practitioners, and encourage an attitude that it’s all down to the individual’s faulty thinking, which plays nicely to the American narrative that you can be anything you want to be if only you adopt the right attitude. As a result of this false ideology, sufferers get blamed in a clinical setting and are denied access to effective medications, as well as therapies such as CBT, that would help their situation if used responsibly.
