Helped me

Had a fear of flying for pretty much my entire life. Got this audiobook a few days before a trip I could not miss and I found it incredibly useful. I wouldn't say I was totally fearless but I will say I was a lot better than I used to be and have already booked a few more trips for later in the year.

Recovered

I liked the narrators voice and style, really helped get the point across and the writing was unique with some viewpoints and ideas I had never ever heard before. Very good book actually (sorry if I sound surprised lol)

No longer afraid

I have tried many books and methods but thankful to have found this book (after a recommendation from a support group) as it has reduced my anxiety by about 75% and finally made air travel possible without panic attacks!

Very helpful

I actually downloaded this right before turning my phone on airplane mode and we took off. I have severe panic attacks every time I fly and I had 7 flights coming up in a two-week period. I also downloaded some guided meditation for PTSD, which were helpful, but this one was by far the best for me. I am a cerebral person. Knowledge is power. I like how much of the book is a simple overview of the pathophysiology of fear responses as well as the mechanics of an airplane and what makes all the noises (very simplistic, but anything more would not have been helpful)! As she was explaining what fear is, I was actually intensely feeling the emotions of fear and I could say, "Oh, that's because my body is responding to . . . " It was very, very helpful in the moment. Usually, when I fly I am keenly aware of every little noise, bump, and tilt of the plane, but by the end of my 7th flight, I didn't even know we were landing!

Good tips but narrator goes too fast

These tips were helpful for flight anxiety and I am glad I listened, but the narrator goes WAY too fast. I tried to slow it down but it just sounded robotic and weird so I dealt with her speed.

Fear is almost gone. Almost.

I found tis book to be very effective. I have went from being very anxious / petrified about flying to be able to do it with relative ease. I wouldn't say I enjoy flying but I dont avoid it anymore and thats a large leap forwards.

Not quite for me

This book tackles the fear of flying in a very rationale way and big chunk of it goes through why you shouldn't worry about the things that may trigger your fear. Personally though, I'm well aware my flying related fears are irrational so I need techniques to address this, not an explanation as to how thoroughly aircraft are inspected or how well trained pilots and air traffic controllers are. Reading other reviews it sounds like this has worked for lots of people which is fantastic but not quite right for me.

Fear no more.

I have had a fear of flying for longer than i care to mention. I have tried a few other books but most are so damn long and complicated...this was different. Straight to the point and has now enabled me to take two flights with very very little anxiety.
