In The Worry Cure, Dr. Leahy, an internationally recognised psychologist, combines the best of the educational and scientific benefits of Cognitive Therapy. His status as a highly respected and compassionate cognitive therapist ensures that The Worry Cure is engaging and accessible, yet up-to-date and highly informative about the latest psychological understanding and treatment of the common but important problem of worry. Most importantly, the author treats the reader as an equal in the exercise of understanding and accepting the paradoxical nature of their own worry and committing to a clear program of change. The Worry Cure will have appeal to both worriers and professionals alike, committed to the common goal of understanding and managing the daily mind.

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.

"Dr. Leahy's The Worry Cure should have been titled, 'Seven Simple Steps to a Stress-Free Life.' This book offers practical and powerful tools to reverse your worry and transform the quality of your life." -Anthony Robbins, author of Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power "Highly instructive and accessible . . . Worriers will find relief here." -Janis Abrahms Spring, Ph.D., author of After the Affair and How Can I Forgive You? "I heartily recommend this book to everybody who is worried . . . and that includes practically all of us. Eminent psychologist Dr. Robert L. Leahy has designed an easy-to-follow program pinpointing unproductive worries across the broad spectrum of relationships, work, health, and finances. In elegant style, he shows how to neutralize and even eliminate them." -Aaron T. Beck, M.D., president of the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research and university professor emeritus of psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania "Compelling, informative, and highly accessible. This book is certain to become the standard in assisting those who worry achieve fuller, healthier lives." -Douglas Mennin, director of the Yale Anxiety and Mood Services "A must-read . . . During a time when society is under more stress than ever comes this comprehensive book written by one of the world's most noted authorities. Packed with clinical advice in a practical style, it addresses everyone from the occasional worrywart to some of the most severe types of ruminators." -Frank M. Dattilio, Ph.D., A.B.P.P., department of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
