Strongly informational,

By Janet Gibson

I am a Licensed Therapist who works with clients dealing with anxiety. Sometimes people can get weighed down or confused by all the information out there. This is a short, but strongly informational read that doesn`t contain a lot of the "fluff" that most books have just to fill pages. It provides real world applications and examples regarding anxiety and fear. I appreciate Stanley Popovich`s straightforward approach.  

 

  

Great Layman`s Guide!!

By icounselu

Popovich, who claims only to be a layman, does exactly as he claims to do by offering a layman`s guide to managing fear. The book is written in such a way that anyone can glean some great information and tools of how to understand and manage fear. As a counselor, I understand there are more intricate details but oftentimes the best thing for clients is simple things and this book offers just that.

The author does a good job of explaining fear and ways to manage it so the average person can understand. The examples of managing fear in this book are also easily applicable to the daily lives of readers.The author mentions this is not a "be all end all" to managing fear/anxiety, but is a great starting point for those thinking of entering counseling or therapy.  

 

 

 

easy entry into the problem of fear,

By T. Lucking "SeattleBallard

This book is exactly what it claims to be - a LAYMAN`s guide to managing fear. It can be read in one sitting. It is inspirational and clear. The author uses some examples to build upon the basic presentation of ideas for managing fear. The 3 categories of counseling, non-resistant, and spiritual are very helpful in framing the approaches to treating fear. The best treatment is using all three. The book is not long yet it provides an immersion into the topic of fear along with specific techniques to manage it. There is a resource section and tips on getting started. Anxiety and fear along with depression are the most common mental health problems humans face. This book provides and easy entry into dealing with fear. If anything else it acknowledges that you are not alone with this problem and there are some easy basic steps to deal with it.  

 

 

A helpful resource!

By Andrea McCartney

This is an easy, quick read for the average lay person or professional. I would recommend this guide to anyone in the helping profession or anyone that struggles with fear and anxiety. Many people tend to ignore, block out, or distract themselves from fearful thoughts and ideas, but the problem remains and it unknowingly affects their life. The author uses various examples to help people understand how to process and face their fears. The end result is a more balanced and realistic view of reality. A very helpful resource that I would recommend to my clients!  

 

Book serves it`s stated purpose... is affordable... and a quick read,

By T. Stone "book terrain

This book is a super quick read and provides many practical tips people can start implementing right away to help them get over their fears. I thought the examples of how the techniques work were excellent and make it easy for people to figure out how to use the techniques in their own life. The author does have a chapter on how belief in God can help people who have such a belief overcome fear. I thought it was informational (and not that the author was advocating for everyone to be a Christian) and as long as the reader doesn`t
