Style/ Plot – I’m a card carrying member of they worriers’ club and this book definitely addresses people like me.
It starts out by identifying what part of the brain plays worry like a loop and how you can develop the resilience needed to think clearly in situations that may make you fret.
Jennifer provides quizzes at various stage in the book to enable readers assess themselves and determine what spectrum they fall under different headings. I particularly liked the drawings/ illustrations in the book.
Favourite Quote – “Difficulty tolerating doubt can lead to compulsive checking behaviours like making sure doors are locked and appliances are turned off. You’ll tend to over plan things; even weekends and vacations have a to-do list. And when the list doesn’t get finished or things don’t go as you planned them, you become upset and have difficulty enjoying the moment”.
Rating – 4/5
