Life changing

I never realized that all the negative thoughts I had, even as a child, were anxiety driven. This book put a name to my demons and put me on the road to improvement. I am so grateful.

A Quieter Mind This Book Makes

This is a number one on my list. 5 stars!!
Just the sound of her voice is calming. I listen to her in the car when I get anxious.

She shares some great material that will change you a little each day if you just listen with an open mind.

Thanks Chloe for sharing your experiences and knowledge. You have changed many lives.

Helpful tips

Some good helpful nuggets that make you see anxiety differently and tips for coping. I enjoy that she mentions (a little bit) the additional pressures felt by women, as its relatable and most books dont have that.

A surprisingly wise guide to a more serene life

This book is clearly aimed at readers decades younger than I am, but I found the author's many suggestions quite practical, original, and straightforward. I long ago resolved many of the issues of life, love, and work referred to in the book, but I have never learned to have a quiet mind so I was drawn to the title.I liked her conversational tone and gentle humor. Also, I enjoyed the author's reading of her own book; she was authentic and convincing and even entertaining , considering that this is a book on a serious subject.

ok

There is a lot of good tips in this book and I like the music that comes with the exercises. The book is for people with "light" anxieties and worries I think, and since mine now is because of a loss of a family member it does not going into such nough helping. but ok book listening too, in order to keep the mind on something more helpfull thoughts. Also nice that the book is devided into different thematics like sleep and food.

Not for me

Really struggled to get into this. It just felt like I was party to a rather tatty AA session, I didn't enjoy this at all. It felt like a quick pep talk from somebody sharing their own experiences coupled with some stuff taken from Google and the NHS website to pad it out.
I didn't feel connected at all, listening to this felt more like a lecture; dictating with regular taps on the backside.
The longer this went on, the more I cringed until I could listen no more.
I really didn't feel like the author tried to make a genuine connection with her readers.

Good but not for me

I listened to this book quite quickly. The author is easy to listen to and her personal experiences bring a better level of credibility and likability.
However, this book didn't really help me with more of a obsessive anxiety and I feel that if you're suffering badly, or a specific form of anxiety, this might just scratch the surface and provide a level of explanation behind the reasoning instead of significantly helping.

Specifically for women

it's hard to like it when it is aimed at women specifically. The author contradicts herself by saying she wants to help people when in reality she only wants to help women. Men suffer from anxiety too!!

An essential read for anyone who suffers anxiety

One of the most helpful books I’ve ever listened to regarding the topic.

The author was relatable and tackled all aspects of the condition, using scientific research to help the reader better understand the thought process behind anxiety.

There was a lot of thought provoking statements made and I feel personally far more liberated from anxious thoughts since purchasing this book. I would go as far as to say that this book is an essential book to read/listen to if you suffer from the condition of anxiety. It helps you understand yourself far better and leaves you feeling calmer and more confident in your everyday life.

I 100% recommend the book.

The audiobook is fantastic for listening to if you’re in the shower/cleaning.

Excellent

Excellent, really helpful (although it is clearly targeted at women due to the language used, I think it contains information helpful for anyone)?

👍

Lots of useful exercises. Would be handy to have a work book with just the exercises to go along with the audio book as usually I listen on the move and it's difficult to take notes/find the exercises later.
