Somewhat Annoying

This book appears to be only useful for either young people or the radically uniformed person. The author grinds in the obvious to an irritating degree. This book went into several hours of repeating stories people who had worried themselves nearly to death by various problems then *poof* 'stopped worrying and started living'
The solution offered was simply 'ignore it through getting busy' which is an instinctual response for most people. There is no actual 'technique' or 'method' recommended other than "go read your bible and pray to Jesus" repeated in several sections advocating one should primarily become religious for stress control.

The piece on dealing with criticism appeared to be written for the individual who becomes easily wounded by it, yet still gave no actual 'techique' to stop the problem. Rather than recommending methods of 'self diagonstic' to locate the cause of 'why' it is such an issue that keeps coming at them, the author implies just ignoring it, when it's clearly not that simple, particularly if it costs a person his job or damages wellbeing.

So if you're looking for a new method & actual technique to change your reality enough to control stress & worry, i recommend looking into the subject of quantum physics & Law of Attraction.

Excellent Read

I really enjoyed this audio book. I discovered it at a time of need. The reader, Andrew MacMillan is awesome. Sometimes when I listen to audio books the information is excellent, but the reader is too monotone. But Andrew did an exceptional job with this book. I am looking for other books read by him because his voice is so soothing.

Although most of the examples cited in the book are from a different era, I fully understood the message. It does not make a difference whether it happened during the first century or current, worry is a constant no matter when you live(d).

I was able to take the information, use the examples, and apply them to my situation.

However, this is not something you read once and then put down. You have to listen to it periodically. With everything else in life, we need reminders. This is no exception. I keep the book on my iPod and refresh my thoughts. In fact, I have specific areas that I have pinpointed that I like to listen to again and again.

I also shared the book with my husband and he thought it was excellent as well.

Also, as an educator, I think we should share this type of information with our teenagers. They need to learn how to cope with worry at an early age. I think it is important that we train them how to handle worry before they become adults.
