I had to purchase this book for a class I'm taking and I don't feel it is worth the $32.00 asking price. It's a thin workbook with a few measly examples. I'm not impressed.

I have only read the first five chapters of the Workbook, but already, following the instructions in the book, I have reduced my anxiety and worry. The Workbook encourages the reader to seek and examine the sources of his/her anxiety and worry and Chapter Five offers an excellent schedule of Relaxation exercises. Read it, work, and relax, at last.
