Jenny Lawson manages to tow that line creating a book about anxiety that is hysterically funny, educational and touching. So many books on this list are clinical.
They have great ideas on how to cope with anxiety and depression. This is certainly the only one that is actually laugh out loud funny. A great break from books teaching you how to deal with your problems. This book is likely not for everyone. It takes some of the stigma out of mental illness, with the author talking more as a friend than delivering lectures on what steps to take. Many of the other books on dealing with anxiety cover the same ground, often in more detail.
The strength of this anxiety book is the unique delivery of details in such an easygoing manner. The lack of scientific jargon makes this eminently readable and able to reach everyone. A great read for anyone who likes plain speaking and honest hard truths.
There is something special about reading the trials that others faced and how they specifically dealt with the issues. While not specifically a book on dealing with anxiety, What you say when you talk to yourself is an important self-help book milestone, that every person who does have anxiety should read at some point. In fact, according to this book we can become what we think and tell ourselves.
BE THE FIRST TO KNOW
It teaches us to "erase and replace" these negative thoughts that hold us back, such as anxiety with thoughts that can give a positive mindset and can help to build our successful lives. If you want to fix a problem in your brain, you need to understand your brain. She gives good scientific explanations of the causes of anxiety and then 10 brain science techniques that actually work, without needing to resort to medication. The chapters that deal with the specific physical and cognitive and behavioral tools for handling anxiety are excellent. They get right to the point and can have a big impact, specifically for those who do not currently see a psychologist who may recommend similar techniques.
Full of practical tips that you can immediately put to use in combating anxiety, this workbook can be very helpful to those dealing with generalized anxiety, social anxiety or even panic.
The author of this great anxiety book is not writing about a clinical dull topic. He is writing about something that matters to him, because he has been a sufferer of anxiety for many years. While Scott discusses his personal feelings and his own personal situation vis-a-vis anxiety, those discussions are not all this book is about. He spent years avidly researching every single facet of dealing with anxiety and shares this knowledge in this great book.

This book hits all the important points of coping with anxiety. Stossel discusses the social, neurological, and environmental causes of anxiety as well as many tools and tricks for decreasing the impact of these anxiety triggers. He discusses the specific experiences of many people and their anxiety, including but not limited to his own experiences. In one important section he talks quite a bit about pharmaceutical solutions, their side effects and alternate forms of treatment. Some other anxiety books may go deeper into treatments and causes of anxiety. Some books are more personal and revealing.
Some books may have more cutting edge science, being written by leading researchers. But this anxiety book is the one that really hits ALL the bases in its thorough discussion of the topic. The tools, examples and in depth explanations in this book are down to earth and extremely motivational. Not only are these pages filled with great facts, but it inspires you to go out and make changes in your life.
Barry shares a comprehensive guide that draws from his extensive experience helping those who suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. Based on hard science and over 10 years experience. The DARE technique can be used by everyone. One problem with many self-help books is that they spend too much time preaching their techniques. They often supply some good material, they make you think… but they do not inspire follow through and action.
I am a big believer in taking action and always appreciate books that encourage you, either by design or by inspiration to take the steps they offer and actually put them into action. This book does that! This book gets right to the heart of the different ways anxiety affects the lives of its sufferers.

It gives great detail on what causes people to feel anxiety as well as clear steps to decrease anxiety. They key to this book is in its approach to the material. This book is just more fun than some others. Being interactive and even having things like quizzes to ensure you are truly learning the material and making your learning experience worthwhile. It has sections dealing with all sorts of emotional issues: anger, focus, anxiety, depression, obsession, lack of focus and memory issues. This book is a thorough academic yet practical book about the relationship between our brain patterns and problem-behavior that can help us cure a myriad of mental problems.
One of the major differences between this book and others is the stance on using prescription drugs. Many books take a stance against these drugs or at least offer alternatives without drugs, while this book lays out many strong arguments for drugs in some situations and lets the readers know when they should be used and when avoided. Although I am strongly against over medication and I think many are too ready to turn to drugs as a solution to problems, there certainly are times when drugs might be the answer, and I like the balanced approach this book brings to the subject.
KEY ONE: RECOGNISE & STEP BACK FROM NEGATIVE THOUGHT PATTERNS
If many of these questions sound like they could refer to you, then you may well be a highly sensitive person. These symptoms for an HSP are more than just aspects of your personality. An HSP is just more susceptible to stimulation e. Just because someone has anxiety does not automatically make someone HSP, and all people who are HSP do not necessarily surer from anxiety.
Anxiety: Stop Negative Thoughts
But there is a lot of overlap. The high susceptibility to stimulation often means that an HSP will feel anxious and overwhelmed in social situations.
Due to this fact it is important to understand yourself and know whether you need to treat common anxiety or just balance your life effectively to not get overwhelmed. In this excellent book on dealing with anxiety psychologist Catherine Pittman offers a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research.
Discover how the amygdala and cortex are keys to the neuropsychology of anxiety, and what you can actually do to control these feelings where they start —your brain. Personally I have read books like this before. It is a useful and well written book, but it does not really break any new ground or have a unique perspective. What it does well is cover the complete causes of anxiety in the brain and give an idea about how we can all make habit and life changes and deal with it.
Earlier I mentioned a book that openly discussed prescription medications as possible cures to many anxiety disorders. This book is the opposite of that previous choice. To be completely honest, I am a bit of a traditionalist. Crazy sounding solutions are not always for me. These solutions are off the beaten path. The book also offers sensible suggestions for more effective communication and for finding happiness - something that is within everyone's grasp.
