Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really had high hopes for this book; I wanted some concrete strategies and an actual action plan for me to follow with regard to my stress/anxiety problems. The information in the book was good (I assume); I learned about neuroplasticity and how the author has used different strategies for different types of stress in his patients. However, his 45-day plan is almost an afterthought - stuck at the back of the book - very brief, lame description of what you should be doing on each day. It doesn't even really make sense as a "45-day" plan since so many of the daily exercise actually take more than a day (observe your behavior over time, observe stress patterns over time" etc. I really hoped for a different layout with better information for each day. This would definitely have worked better as a workbook - at least that's what I wanted, whether or not that's what the author actually wanted to write.To clarify - it's not bad information, it's just not presented in a useful way for me.
