This is a self help book about ways overcome anxiety. I has many very helpful tips. The tips are very well explained for you to implement in your life. He talks about all the different ways and how you could personalize them to fit your life. The only issue I really had was that some of the explanations were over done and not needed. There were some parts that I kept getting distracted because it was to long and not to the point. Besides that I found the ideas, if practiced were helpful.
