Publisher's Summary

A no-nonsense and helpful guide on how to cope with a slew of mental-health issues that are hell-bent on ruining the lives of millions of people worldwide

Our brains do their best to help us out, but every so often they can be real assholes - having meltdowns, getting addicted to things, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. Your brain knows it's not good to do these things, but it can't help it sometimes - especially if it's obsessing about trauma it can't overcome. That's where this life-changing book comes in.

With humor, patience, science, and lots of good-ole swearing, Dr. Faith explains what's going on in your skull, and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life, and to deal effectively with old, or newly acquired, traumas (particularly post-traumatic stress disorder).

Untuck this recording quality

The echoey recording disrupts the delivery. Audible - have some standards and get this thing re recorded.

This is a smart person - with useful info -that was recorded in a do it yourself manner.

The crap quality of recording matters - audible-wtf?

works

If you're struggling with anxiety, this book really does work. Fancy Dr. lady actually gives you helpful ways to say "screw you anxiety! I don't F with you" I wish the quality of the audio was better, but small price to pay when anxiety rules your life like it did mine.

Horrible sound quality. Horrible.

Reading is difficult right now so I use audible. This book is useful, but I can never recommend the audible version because the sound is so horrible. I wonder how the author would feel if a recording engineer was out there trying to pass as a therapist. It’s almost impossible to listen to. It sound like she’s in a warehouse, edits are obvious (the including clipped words, the ambient sound is stressful — like a bad smell, the background noises, and even extra voices(!) now and then, are distracting. I hope she re-does it properly soon so I can recommend this recording. Her voice is fine, the sound quality is, yes, horrible — as if she just turned on her computer and started talking. No excuse for this except ignorance - it’s too easy to record decent sound nowadays. If I sound angry, well, that’s probly why I need this book. Look forward to when I can hear it.

One of the best books out there

This book was straight and the point. Listening to the author herself recite the book added even more depth and meaning to it. I loved all the insight that it provided, and all of the topics it covered. She had of humor when needed but did not overdo it. I would recommend it to anyone.

I wish I could return this book

I myself am not shy of dropping a great f-bomb for impact. The use of profanity in this book gets in the way of the message. The opening of the book turned into a hunt for meaning between f-bombs. It's now filed in my DNF (did not finish) folder. I might have appreciated this book as a jr. high student. I do not as an adult.

Helpful information explained well

Great info, good science, easy to understand explanations. Her swearing is too much, but slows in later chapters. Her info is very useful and encouraging. The sound quality is horrible.
