Millions of people are afraid of work. The situations they fear may be different: public speaking (e.g., presentations and speeches), meetings, conference calls, new assignments, performance reviews, promotions or praise, client consultations, team projects, and so on. But the feeling is often the same: some combination of obsessive worry, fear of being noticeably nervous, clammy hands, racing thoughts, sweating, blushing, heart palpitations, trouble breathing, and more.
That feeling is called "workplace anxiety." And Work Makes Me Nervous is the cure. An effective self-empowerment training program, Work Makes Me Nervous lays out a proven therapeutic method for dismantling the wall between you and your ability to excel at work. The program trains you to:
Channel workplace anxiety into powerful performance
Identify anxiety symptoms and pinpoint where fears originate
Achieve a High Performance Mind through a technique called Mind States Balance
Abandon fear and ride the wave of adrenaline through every work situation
Filled with real stories of real people and a 21-day developmental program of practical exercises and effective stress-management techniques, Work Makes Me Nervous will enable you to finally say, "I can handle whatever situations come my way."

More than a few golden nuggets
I've found several of the frames and techniques Jonathan Berent offers in Work Makes Me Nervous to be helpful. Since I finished the audio book about a week ago, I've been using one of the techniques, Mind States Balance, several times a day. I started using it as a practice to see if it helped at all. I've discovered that it helps me quite a bit.
One result of my reading the book and practicing the techniques is that my "phone phobia" has greatly diminished. It used to be almost impossible for me to pick up the phone either to initiate or answer a call. Now I almost always pick up the phone when it rings, even when I don't recognize the number. For me, that's huge!

Garbage- don't waste your time or money
What would have made Work Makes Me Nervous: Overcome Anxiety and Build the Confidence to Succeed better?
If they had never bothered. Utter drivel. The first chapeter makes you think there might be some useful information coming, but this was far and away the worst nonsense I have ever read.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jonathan Berent and Amy Lemley again?
Would you be willing to try another one of John Allen Nelson’s performances?
He was actually pretty good
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
