Anxiety doesn't play fair. It antagonizes you. It lies to you. It steals away the best parts of you. Don't let it keep cheating you out of happiness! You are too important. In You 1, Anxiety 0, Jodi Aman highlights the ways anxiety manipulates and entraps you, and the precise tools you can use to see through anxiety's mind tricks and break free from the prison of fear, stress, and doubt. All bets are off. It's time for you. Anxiety is curable. Even if you've had it forever. Even if therapy hasn't worked. Even if you feel hopeless. You've got this! This is a remarkably pragmatic book that has turned some of the best of narrative therapy practice and directed it at the problem of anxiety. These ideas have turned around the lives of so many people. To see Jodi translating them into You 1, Anxiety 0 in such a skillful and imaginative way gives me the greatest joy.

I've only listened to half of it so far and its already been very helpful. Stand up to the beast of anxiety, tell it to bring it on and it loses all its power. It needs you to be scared to keep feeding itself. Take control and gain your power back!
I read this book on Kindle when it first came out, but I knew I wouldn't be able to retain everything so I got the audio version as well. What's nice about this audiobook is that I can let these great ideas sink in a little more while I'm doing stuff around the house. The author's voice is very calming and it was interesting to hear her own inflection on her own work, like how emotional her voice was when talking about the letter to her 13 year old self. I missed that while reading it. The audio definitely adds a richness I didn't know I was lacking on the ebook.
Overall, I would recommend this to everyone. It has a very positive and encouraging, yet realistic and attainable message, and it's down-to-earth enough for a cynic like me. It's really helped me to remember to defeat anxiety by focusing on my skills. I can do that. Thanks, Jodi!
