Publisher's Summary

A step-by-step guide to understanding and overcoming the anxiety problems that have plagued you for so long, The Anxious Truth goes well beyond just telling that that you'll get better. It actually shows you exactly how! 

You're anxious all the time, experiencing panic attacks over and over, and maybe afraid to leave your house or to be left alone for even a few minutes. You are avoiding simple things like driving, eating in restaurants, attending family functions, or going to the supermarket. You are terrified of the next wave of anxiety or the next panic attack. Your anxiety problems are ruining your relationships, your family life, and your career. Your anxiety problems have you afraid, confused, lost, and feeling hopeless. How did you get here? What went wrong? You've tried so many things, but nothing has cured your anxiety? What can you do now?

This book, written by a former anxiety sufferer, best-selling author of An Anxiety Story, and host of The Anxious Truth podcast will walk you through exactly how you got to where you are today, why you are not broken or ill, and what the true nature of your anxiety disorder is. Next, the book will walk you through what it takes to solve your anxiety problems, how to make an anxiety recovery plan, then how to correctly execute that plan.

The Anxious Truth isn't always what you want to hear, but it's what you need to hear in order to solve this problem once and for all and move toward the life you so desperately want.

a must read

I am a long time anxiety sufferer -- 25 plus years. Drew's approach and no nonsense way of looking at things is radical acceptance at its finest. I highly recommend for anyone trying to get out of this horrible loop and begin living again ♡

Therapists need to listen to this

Drew and his anxious truth channel are a great gift to our community, especialy in the post covid era.
He has a clear path on how to overcome anxiety based on Clair Weeke's framework.
I wished more therapists would use this framework to help people recover from anxiety and fear.

Amazing, Real and refreshing.

A great short listen packed with understanding, humor, to the point and tons of good tips. He really calls you out but realize that you're not crazy or the only one. He really knows every little thing you're thinking. It makes it funny. Then he shows you why it's manageable. I really needed this. Thanks!

Awesome Book

I found this book online and the synopsis really caught my attention. I have been struggling with anxiety and fear for 16 years. I’ve had numerous therapy sessions and connected with God. About 4 years ago I set out to change my life. I started driving more, took a new job in a new city, moved the family and struggled tremendously. Now my job requires that I be a road warrior and I’m able to do it with discomfort. One of the major things I’ve learned from this book is I’ve been practicing too much avoidance and it’s hampered my life. I needed this book and advice to put me on the final steps of my recovery. I still have a lot of work to do but I feel I’m better equipped and knowledgeable now to handle it and move forward. Thank you!! Highly recommend this book to anyone facing any type of anxiety disorder, there is hope and you can do it!

Hits the spot, no bull shit!

Tells it as it is, straight down the line on how to recover, but with smatterings of empathy if you suffer with anxiety and agriphobia then you need to listen to this book.

Great book to learn "how to" recover from anxiety

Drew L teaches how to recover from anxiety step by step. It's simple but not easy, however it is doable by changing our reactions and behaviours. Requires patience and especially a lot of practice but Drew explains how your recovery is in your control. This provides hope and empowerment. We can recover if we do the work.

Agoraphobia Must Read

It’s not an understatement to say that this book has changed my life. Following the steps in the book I have gone from avoiding so many situations and missing out on life to being well on my way to recovery. It’s hard to take the leap but so worth it!
