I had high hopes for this book, since I am a chronic worrier. I read an article online, written by a conscientious person who sourced the book as helpful. the article was much kinder and thoughtful in tone than this book is, I'm afraid. This book lacks any kind of bedside manner and is too technical to be appreciated and understood in a meaningful manner because it's so poorly organized and lacks more explanation where needed and too much where not. It's a self-help book having a personality crisis. It has good intentions in theory, but lacks usefulness in practice. There is no "hope" exuded in the words of the author/expert. It's a dry, technical and very robotic written voice w/o any warmth and encouragement whatsoever. I'm borrowing from another reviewer who noted, as I did, that:
Also, there are things missing -- the reader takes a test "scoring key, personality belief questionnaire" -- which then shows your alleged levels of Obsessive-Compulsive, Narcissistic, etc. personality traits. But the explanation on the next page leaves out the last three categories on which you are scored. So you have no idea what scores in those areas mean.
That is severely troubling. That is too big of an omission to make for a book of this weight. And, it is a terrible disservice done to the people who are ailing and in anxious need to gain some insight and help from this book.
overall, a total disappointment. sorry i spent the money.
