Publisher's Summary

Do you ever wonder what is happening inside your brain when you feel anxious, panicked, and worried? In Rewire Your Anxious Brain, psychologist Catherine Pittman and author Elizabeth Karle offer a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety, based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research.
In this audiobook you will learn how the amygdala and cortex (both important parts of the brain) are essential players in the neuropsychology of anxiety. The amygdala acts as a primal response, and oftentimes, when this part of the brain processes fear, you may not even understand why you are afraid. By comparison the cortex is the center of worry - that is, obsessing, ruminating, and dwelling on things that may or may not happen.
Pittman and Karle offer simple, specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping in to both of these pathways in the brain. As you listen, you'll gain a greater understanding of how anxiety is created in the brain, and as a result you will feel empowered and motivated to overcome it.
The brain is a powerful tool, and the more you work to change the way you respond to fear, the more resilient you will become. Using the practical self-assessments and proven-effective techniques in this book, you will learn to literally "rewire" the brain processes that lie at the root of your fears.

Wow,!! really a terrific listen

The subject matter is very interesting and relevant in today's fast paced society; however, it requires much attention due to the nature of its technical terminology and the fast pace of narration. Some of the terminology got by me on the first pass. With a second listen everything really clicked. As stated the narrator's pace was quick but still pleasant while on topic.

I did enjoy this book from start to finish and hope to read more from the authors (Pittman and Carle).

I'd recommend this book to anybody looking to get a better understanding of how our body's both initiate and respond to emotions such as fear, panic, anxiety and worry.

Well worth the credit for this fascinating book.
