Publisher's Summary

Of course worry can be an important asset when it forces our attention on problem solving. But anxious worrying can cause us to unnecessarily focus on threat, to retreat and avoid, and to seek reassurance and safety - which is no way to foster a life of growth and excitement.

In his fifth published book, Dr. Reid Wilson proposes a groundbreaking, paradoxical approach to overcoming anxiety and worry by moving away from comfort, confidence, and security and willingly moving toward uncertainty, distress, and discomfort. Through the use of unconventional strategies, listeners will learn how to confront anxiety head-on and step forward into the face of threat.

Drawing on a range of sources - from firefighters and fitness instructors to Sir Isaac Newton and Muhammad Ali - Stopping the Noise in Your Head demonstrates the importance of shifting our perspective and stepping toward our challenges in order to regain control of our lives.

This works!

I really got a lot out of this. I was stuck my exposure therapy stopped working. My boundaries were shrinking and my panic attacks were becoming overwhelming. This book was like reading my biography. It was the approach to my exposure that I had wrong. Changing the mind set from white knuckling thru the exposure to one of " anxiety come out and play" sung like the psycho in Warriors was the moment I got it. I have been taking back ground ever since.

For the beginners

Intended for American beginners, very simple examples,half of the book talks that it will teach you something but it gives you one and the same advice throughout the rest of the book.

Excruciating narrator

Would you be willing to try another one of Eric Michaelian’s performances?

Absolutely not. Sounds like a computer over-pronouncing all of the consonants. Intolerable and should be re-recorded.
