This was one of those rare self-help books that absolutely nailed the diagnosis of worry, it's impact and the "thinking distortions" that accompany it. It also shed light on the impossibility of predicting an uncertain future and the futility of trying to build defense strategies to avoid catastrophic events that will likely never occur. The 7 step "cure" the author advances is sound - but is very hard to follow in an audiobook format. For each of the 7 steps, there were 10 other steps nested within in each. Since I listen to most audiobooks in my car, I found myself having to pull over to the side of the road to scribble down core elements of the program in a notebook to build my own personal "cure." Overall, I felt the book was excellent and insightful - and have recommended it to many friends and colleagues.

I am surprised how this books just totally speaks to my issues with worry/anxiety and answers with what I need to cure this albatross of worry/anxiety. I could not have made a better choice of books on the matter.

Leahy is the expert on worry or GAD to give it it's proper name. Using Cognitive behavioral therapy techniques Leahy shows how one can overcome worry. He uses common CBT techniques like productive worry v unproductive worry; worry diary and worry time. Recommend this whole heartedly

I bought this audiobook yesterday and have listened to it twice already. It is a good effective self help guide to dealing with worry. The narrator is good. I particularly like the idea of self help audiobooks. I find it a very good format for these types of books. If you have a problem with worrying i would highly recomend this book.
