Worry consumes time and energy, too often isolates us from friends and family, and prevents us from solving the real problems that are behind the act of worrying. Dr. Edward M. Hallowell makes clear the crucial distinctions among the various forms of worry, showing which are protective and productive, which handicap achievement and pleasure, and which seriously threaten physical health and mental balance. He explains which forms of worry are rooted in inborn predispositions, which arise from misguided attempts to cope with the stresses of daily life, and which are symptomatic of other problems, such as depression or attention deficit disorder. In each case, he maps out the most effective strategies for change - psychotherapy, medication, innovative methods of retraining the brain - many of which the chronic worrier can pursue on his or her own.
Filled with illuminating case histories, anecdotes, and practical guidance, Worry is an invaluable aid to understanding and coping with one of the most common and debilitating but least understood states of mind.

It's up near the top. Very informative.
Panic and Anxiety Self-Help.
No. Cannot compare.
No. It helped me understand a bit more about the worry factor within people.
A bit much with the doctor-patient experience, but ok, I suppose it was necessary.
Nothing concrete, other than the obvious.
Audible must make these narrators stop doing voices. Look, I get that you're a frustrated actor, and this is the best you can do to make ends meet, but stop doing the voices. They are annoying and make the experience so frustrating it's impossible to concentrate on the book.
Anger-see my comments about the narrator
Just now finished. It's a long book. There were times I thought maybe I'll skip this chapter, this is a little bit hard to listen to, but I continued on because I knew I needed to hear it. I took notes and will keep a list nearby when I find my worry getting out of hand. It's hard to explain but just listening to this book and taking notes over a couple of weeks caused me to stop worrying so much and start planning and organizing instead. This is a much more productive way to live. I would recommend this to anyone!
