When I was handed this book, I was apprehensive. As facing my anxiety can act as a trigger for me, it’s often a scary concept to delve in and have my issues in front of my face. However, the point of this was not only to read the book, but learn a little more about anxiety.
Upon reading the first few paragraphs, you’re introduced to a harrowing yet completely relatable story about one man’s honest struggle with social anxiety. It’s amazing how different the triggers can be, but the symptoms are often the same. It’s not only good for someone with anxiety to see they’re not alone, it’s a brilliant opportunity for someone to be educated in anxiety and exactly how it can cripple a person.
As the chapters go on, not only does the social anxiety begin to unravel, but the tools shared are important when starting your road to recovery.
I don’t want to give too much of the book away, but if you’re struggling with social anxiety and have nowhere to turn, if you want more information on CBT tools and how important they are, or if you simply want to learn what someone in your life is going through, this book is a must.
From the point of view of someone who battles anxiety on a day to day basis, and is conquering anxiety through using the tools shared in this book, my personal opinion is that this book is extremely important. It’s important because this information MUST be shared in order to get the message out there about what anxiety is all about and eliminate stigma.
I’d like to congratulate Peter on a brilliant book, and one I’ll definitely refer to when I need a pick me up.
