Publisher's Summary

Worry consumes time and energy, too often isolates us from friends and family, and prevents us from solving the real problems that are behind the act of worrying. Dr. Edward M. Hallowell makes clear the crucial distinctions among the various forms of worry, showing which are protective and productive, which handicap achievement and pleasure, and which seriously threaten physical health and mental balance. He explains which forms of worry are rooted in inborn predispositions, which arise from misguided attempts to cope with the stresses of daily life, and which are symptomatic of other problems, such as depression or attention deficit disorder. In each case, he maps out the most effective strategies for change - psychotherapy, medication, innovative methods of retraining the brain - many of which the chronic worrier can pursue on his or her own.
Filled with illuminating case histories, anecdotes, and practical guidance, Worry is an invaluable aid to understanding and coping with one of the most common and debilitating but least understood states of mind.

Little useful info, dreadful narrator

What disappointed you about Worry?

Nothing concrete, other than the obvious.

Would you ever listen to anything by Edward M. Hallowell, MD again?


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Audible must make these narrators stop doing voices. Look, I get that you're a frustrated actor, and this is the best you can do to make ends meet, but stop doing the voices. They are annoying and make the experience so frustrating it's impossible to concentrate on the book.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger-see my comments about the narrator
