Nothing to lose, everything to gain!
on 6 June 2012
I bought this book in 2007 having been referred to a "specialist". I had previously suffered from Clinical Depression and ended up on pills and could see that I was sliding down the slippery slope again so sought the advice and help of the Doc before I got to the stage of needing tablets again. The specialist I was referred to told me that I was not suffering from depression at that point but that I was currently suffering from "anxiety" and recommended this book along with another one. He did say that "self-help" books help some people but not others. I figured I had nothing to lose, and everything to gain so promptly went on Amazon and bought both books. I worked through the exercises and found them very useful. I wrote the exercises down in a journal and dated it each time, and I've since looked back at my responses and can see how far I have come and how much this book has helped. I confess that I did find this book much more helpful than the other one and it is this book that I have recommended to several friends, either for themselves or a partner, and all who have bought it have found it very useful.
In short, you have nothing to lose by getting this book, and EVERYTHING to gain! I hope it helps you too.
