Dr. Odessky's book is knowledgeably written from a therapist's perspective with an emphasis on sharing relatable examples, offering practical tools, and giving hope to those struggling with anxiety. As a practicing therapist, I greatly appreciated that much of the material is grounded in evidence based effective strategies and that the solutions and tools offered are clearly written in a way to be understood by a wide range of people looking for concrete advice.
Amazing book. It taught me how to manage my anxiety. My high school daughter also found it helpful and easy to understand.
