6410636

The author through his research, including discussions with professionals in the psychology and religious fields, presents a general overview of several techniques that are effective in managing persistent fear. This book focuses on results oriented techniques and strategies that a person can use to manage every day fears and presents this material in a clear and easy-to-read format. This book has been reviewed by various professionals in the counseling fields. This book is not a substitute for the guidance of a professional.
My Review:
This book was well-written and had some good ideas for reducing fear/anxiety.  I do feel that this book would be overlooked  by those who are not Christians as it stresses praying and relying on God to rid oneself of fear.  I am a Christian and appreciate the points but I do feel it would be rejected by those who do not believe.  I would hate for them to miss out on a valuable resource.   Stan does state that he is not a professional and that he is a layman who has studied and wrote from that perspective.   This book is short and easily read in a short time period.  Stan does tell readers that they need to seek professional help in cases of severe anxiety/symptoms.   I received a free pdf copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.   All opinions expressed are my own.
