    Anxiety's source and antidote are one and the same: the mind. On Relieve Anxiety with Medical Self-Hypnosis, listeners join leading mind-body expert Dr. Steven Gurgevich for a liberating program that teaches how to use the power of the subconscious mind to overcome worry, nervousness, panic, and more. Includes guided trancework sessions to enhance skills of mental and physical relaxation, and produce the "relaxation response" whenever and wherever it is needed.

    Would you try another book from Steven Gurgevich and/or Steven Gurgevich?

    No.


    What could Steven Gurgevich have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Focused more on teaching self-hynosis techniques and/or helping the listener to induce a hypnotic trance.


    What didn’t you like about Steven Gurgevich’s performance?

    The book, which I had hoped would guide me into self-hypnosis, was merely a long-winded lecture on psychological concepts I already knew.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    His coverage of psychological topics would work well as an online class or podcast.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money or a credit.

    Dr. Phillip McDevitt, director of Terrace View Asylum, is intrigued by his newest patient, a troubled young man recently transferred from the state hospital for the criminally insane. Jamie Sommers suffers from depression, partial amnesia, and an unaccountable fear of the dark. Dr. McDevitt is determined to help Jamie conquer his demons, but the more he probes the young man's fractured memories, the stranger his case becomes.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is one of THE best books I have ever read. Apparently it was intended as Dark Shadows fiction, and believe me, even with different names, it is. If you love Willie Loomis as much as I do, READ THIS BOOK. If you love his seafaring companion Jason McGuire, READ THIS BOOK. A wonderfully-told, beautifully performed story that stands alone but, when considered as part of the Dark Shadows canon, fills in some gaps in what is an astonishing life. This book resonated with me for months after I finished it - so much so that I had to read it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hawkes Harbor?

    Without spoiling it for others, the scene on the road after Christmas tore my heart out.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He is so able to convey emotion with his voice and can 'read' different parts in character. Beautifully done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I sobbed my heart out at the end - for Grenville (Barnabas) and for Jamie (Willie.)


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there were more books like this - perhaps Hinton could be persuaded to write another, from a different character's point of view?
