Publisher's Summary

Anxiety isn't all bad; there are healthy forms of it - caution, concern, vigilance - but unhealthy anxiety can prevent you from really living your life. The first step to stopping hurtful anxiety is admitting that people and situations don't make you anxious - you do, by letting unrealistic expectations rule your life. This program provides dozens of ways to stop sabotaging yourself by bringing the power of your rational mind to bear on the irrational anxieties that control your behavior. It includes methods of thinking, feeling, and acting plus scores of maxims you can use to minimize your anxiety and maximize your prospects for success and happiness.

    "Very clear and engineered approach."

    I made this book my daily guide, every time I start feeling anxiety I remember lines from that book and act according to the steps described in the book, and amazingly, REBT is working!
    As a computer engineer I have scientific approach to things, I fit best to this excellent book logic. It's simple, witty and has no loose ends. Everything is streched out and good explained. There is touch on every subject, even sex and anger. Although, I think, anger management subject should have been developed some more. But anyway, if you're an engineer have a scientific approach, you suffer from frequent anxiety, panic attacks and it's physical consequences, this book is for you!

    "Great content, uneven narration."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who suffers with anxiety.


    What other book might you compare How to Control Your Anxiety Before It Controls You to and why?

    Anxiety Free by Robert Leahy (which I also recommend)


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was uneven. The sound levels changed as well as the quality. It was distracting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but given it is relatively short, one could listen to it all in one sitting. But, the book is meaty enough that you may want to re-listen to it again in the future to truly grasp the content.

    "REBT is worth learning about"

    This book, as does all of Albert Ellis' works, outlines the basic concepts of REBT, which, in my opinion are worth learning about.
