Publisher's Summary

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental illnesses in the world. Often they go hand in hand with each other, and unfortunately for thousands of people these serious mental health concerns go untreated. Perhaps you or a loved one suffers from anxiety or depression. I want you to know that there is help out there, and that no matter how bad things may seem, tomorrow holds a brighter day, with solutions that you might not see right now.
Anxiety and depression have been a major component of my life for over 30 years. I have been an avid follower of the medical community, and watching the perspective change on depression and anxiety has been fascinating. Today, one of the leading methods for treating anxiety and depression rests with cognitive behavioral therapy. It is my goal over the course of this book to educate you about the core causes of depression and anxiety and to provide advice and help for everyday things that you can do to minimize the negative effects of these mental health conditions.
My experience in the field of behavioral health is practical and comes with years of research, both introspective and academic. I want to provide you with a toolbox to treat anxiety and depression and to understand part of the root cause. Start listening, and soon your anxiety and depression will be put into perspective; you will have a theory of the root cause of depression and anxiety in the modern age, and you will have a set of strategies to help you cope. There's no reason to let anxiety and depression take hold in your life; start listening, and you, too, can break the grip of these serious mental health conditions.

Not CBT

This isn't CBT. I'm sure the author meant well, but telling people who are suffering from depression and/or anxiety that they should just, "Make lists! Eat right! Exercise! Yeah, it's hard, but it's worth it!" is so condescending and absolutely not helpful. Worse, he advises turning to comfort food to feel better. I've read other books (such as The Feeling Good Handbook) on CBT and they cover in-depth guidance on analyzing the twisted thoughts that lead to our emotions and how to change your thinking. I was hoping for something like that in audio format and am very disappointed in this book.

Waste of time

The author does not reveal any scientific backing for his pop psychology, it is his opinion based on his personal experiences.
Be aware that the examples of the moods he calls depression and anxiety are clearly not clinical depression or an anxiety disorder .
