Customer Review

on 27 October 2010
Worrying is an underappreciated concern which can severely damage and limit a person's life. This wonderful book is very much a practical text that allows you to focus on, and attempt to control, worry in a structured way. There are some extremely useful exercises such as the: "Three Column Exercise" an example of which is given below.

Worry: I feel stupid so I am stupid.

Thinking habit: Emotional thinking.

Realistic thought: The fact that I am inadequate in this situation does not mean that I am always inadequate.

I would have liked the book to have considered the (clear?) link between worry and lack of confidence. However, there are ample bibliographical references which may lead to academic texts which deal with this issue. Nevertheless, this book is extremely useful and positive. Finally, picking one typical sentence: "Positive emotions broaden our outlook on things and make us more creative when thinking about solutions to our problems.". It is above all a very hopeful work.
