Book Overview

Are you truly in danger or has your brain simply tricked you into thinking you are? In The Worry Trick, psychologist and anxiety expert David Carbonell shows how anxiety hijacks the brain and offers effective techniques to help you break the cycle of worry, once and for all.

Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question ourselves and our decisions, causes us to worry about the future, and fills our days with dread and emotional turbulence. Based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this book is designed to help you break the cycle of worry.

Worry convinces us there's danger, and then tricks us into getting into fight, flight, or freeze mode--even when there is no danger. The techniques in this book, rather than encouraging you to avoid or try to resist anxiety, shows you how to see the trick that underlies your anxious thoughts, and how avoidance can backfire and make anxiety worse.

If you're ready to start observing your anxious feelings with distance and clarity--rather than getting tricked once again--this book will show you how.

   Better than meds
I can 't even tell you how helpful this book was for me. I took it 1.5 times and felt better by this point than I read when I read anti-anxiety medication. I use now only mindfulness techniques. I haven 't needed to consult this book for a few months, but I know that it is there for me if I need it. I recommended it to a few other people I know who struggle with anxiety.

   One Star
Terribly written and does not accurately represent the real meaning of anxiety or panic. Don 't Panic, read it.
 
3
   Not really for the mildly anxious
Most of this book feels geared towards people with serious, health-aggressive, crippling anxiety. I thought it would be more about tricks and tips for managing daily low-grade anxieties or maybe the occasional anxiety-inducing situations like public speaking and such, but this book seems more geared towards alleviating anxiety in those who experience it to a nearly paralyzed degree. It was great advice for those individuals, but not really helpful for the average person, who sometimes experiences mild anxiety episodes.

   Freedom from anxiety is in this book
This book did save my life, Wow. My anxiety was so controlling that I couldn t leave my house sometimes. In this book, the author took me through simple, easy steps to combat the seemingly endless anxiety dialogue in my head. The first day I ate 12 of the book and my anxiety was already reduced. If you are overwhelmed by anxiety and paralyzed by this book, do yourself a favor and read it!

   Repetitive filler without any help
After seeing all the positive reviews, I was really excited to read this book, but it is terrible. The author actually restates the same things over and over again about hypothetical worries and what doesn 't work, never actually offering tips that DO work. I wish I had started it earlier so that it could have been returned.

   Great book
One of the best books for anxiety is. I am both a parent and a psychotherapist and I recommend it from both perspectives.

   Not good
I have never read a book where the same thing is said so many times.

   GET THIS BOOK AUDIO VERSION !
I love the audio version because you can listen to it whenever you need to be reminded or feel that anxiety sneaks up, listen to it while doing something that is not too distracting because you do need to pay attention. Immediately I found myself laughing in disbelief how he describes some of these ppl with disorders and how he could relate. I suffer from panic attacks, although after hearing his words have gone down or shortened in duration. I think that counterintuitive is the best way to go, he opened my eyes and I also bought the actual paperback book called Panic Attack Workbook '', which gives me hope also to look into Geert Verschaeve's bad ass ways to end anxiety and stop panic attacks book ''.

   Great for Chronic Worriers, Not as useful for Anxiety, Audiobook is Pleasant & Entertaining
I read that this book would be useful for those with anxiety as well, but is not. If you are a chronic worrier, this book could be very helpful. I have the audiobook and the person reading the book is easy to understand and has a bouncy demeanor. I found his bounciness helpful because, as the book addresses some subjects that are unpleasant, his demeanor helped me keep a good sense of humor about it, which resulted in me being able to receive information more efficiently. Having someone else read it to me helped keep me out of my own head, so that I will definitely opt for the audiobook of any self-help book I may want to read in the future.

   Understandable While Providing Valuable Tips on Stress Control
The author presents the subject in a way that is understandable.
