HASH(0xa244990c) out of 5 stars Good Resource for Anxiety Relief March 10 2013
By Virasana123 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book for free through the Empowerment Nation Reviewer's Club.

I would rate this book a 3 out of 5 because it is a great resource book, but not completely what I was hoping for or expected. I was hoping for more of a workbook with exercises and assessments to evaluate progress.

The elements that are most helpful for me include:

* The questionnaires to rate present anxiety.
* The list of many famous and productive people with anxiety issues. The most intriguing person on the list was Edgar Allen Poe. For me, he is a great example of how anxiety can fuel creative endeavors. Also, if catastrophic thinking can lead to great creativity, then I should be the next Picasso and/or Eric Clapton. What wasn't made clear was how to allow this creative energy to be fostered from high anxiety. This is where a workbook would have been most helpful.
* Also, the characterization and distinction among generalized anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, and fear was quite helpful.
* The link between low self-esteem and high anxiety seems logical, but it is something I never considered. I just saw my anxiety as part of a high-strung personality!
* With my scientific background, it was interesting to see a research study evaluating how carbon dioxide and pH in the body can be affected by fear. The fact that current medications don't address this issue is also interesting.
* While reading this book, I encountered many crazy situations. But after reading this book, I was actually able to curb my catastrophic thinking. I have never been able to do this before. I think the "power of suggestion" was prevalent here because the mere idea presented by the book that I can control my anxiety, helped me to utilize the techniques presented better.
* Positive visualization will be my major resource to stop catastrophic thinking, and I gained a lot from the detailed description of how to accomplish this.
* Lastly, the list of food to help with anxiety, as well as the descriptions of aroma-therapeutic agents was very worthwhile.
The elements that could be changed:
* In my opinion, there was too much time spent on psychotherapy. I think that most everyone knows that their are professionals that can help with anxiety. But, my purpose in reading the book was to discover new and less common approaches to address anxiety.

Overall, the book is a great resource for anxiety suffers, and I enjoyed reading it.

HASH(0xa2449960) out of 5 stars Give it a try... Sept. 18 2014
By K. Mizera - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was pretty good. Although all the strategies were right on, there was nothing really new, and the truth is, if you're so stressed out, you can't really implement most of them anyway. However, it's well-laid-out and thoughtful. I just wish these types of authors would realize that usually, by the time you're reading the book, you're not in a place to get right to it. It would be great if there was a lead-in part, where it shows you how to get from "completely out of your mind" to "Okay, I can actually try some of this."

Anyway, good pointers, easy to understand, if not a tad bit repetitive.

HASH(0xa2449b34) out of 5 stars Anxiety No More March 9 2013
By Karen M. Smith - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
All of us feel anxiety from time to time. Between work deadlines, family illnesses, parenting, and driving in bad weather, it is ingrained in us to feel fearful, anxious, and panic often, if not on a daily basis. For some people though, anxiety and panic cripple their very existence. In this new book, the reader can learn practical and effective ways to deal with this condition.

The author first explains what anxiety and panic are and then offers quizzes to help the reader determine how bad their anxiety is. Using personal experience and nonjudgmental language, the author explains how and why anxiety is important (“fight or flight”), but not necessary, usually, in everyday life. For example, it is important to feel anxious in a life or death situation where you may have to fight for survival, but typically, there is nothing dangerous about riding an elevator. Once the reader understands the origins of the “fight or flight” response, the author goes on to explain ways in which to overcome anxiety in everyday life.

Simple techniques such as proper breathing, visualization, journaling and meditation are described in step-by-step fashion and practice exercises are included. I found the journaling portion to be especially helpful, especially dream journaling, since I tend to have very vivid dreams. Once a person learns the roots of their anxiety and can take control of their body and breathing, they will soon find that they can control their reactions to the situation.

The author also offers advice on choosing a psychotherapist, drug therapy and hypnotherapy. I found this book to be easy to read, understandable and extremely helpful.

Do you have anxiety, stress, life problems that are overwhelming, shutting you down? Are you a Vet with the myriad stresses of your tours of duty? If you answered yes or have a loved one for whom you would answer yes - READ THIS BOOK!

"Turning Fear Into Success" gives the reader the tools to manage, overcome and live with stress and cope with anxiety in a complex world. In this book Elizabeth O'Brien distills tomes of clinical and scientific information, mixing the essence with practical knowledge and experience to give the reader a factually sound, yet concise guidebook to find the path to recovery from anxiety disorders. The author's story is a compelling one - sadly repeated unknown times in these uncertain times. She uses her experience to inspire readers to seek recovery with certain assurance that it is not just possible, but achievable and life changing.

This book is not a comprehensive how-to book. It does not address all possible situations. Rather it is a guidebook - a hitchhikers guide to anxiety, a tool to finding the paths and tools for your rebirth. Encouragement and hope rush off these pages and touch the reader that - "You are not alone". The author walked the path - but first she found it. Emphasizing that each path is unique she sprinkles gems of her hard earned experiential elixir on possible paths as beacons to guide the reader to recovery.
