    I have moderate general anxiety. It’s untreated and unmedicated but it’s there and it’s real. I have been suffering from symptoms of Anxiety since I was around 16 but I’ve always been a worrier. It was only when I started 6th-Form that things got really bad though, to the point that I suffered from a panic attack in a local theatre and was afraid to make new friends or go to new places.My anxiety was bad until my second year of university...

    I’m so glad I read this book. It offers a comprehensive overview of the science of anxiety and then gives clear ideas about how to address varying levels of anxiety. These examples and stories made it clear for the first time that I am not alone. When suffering bouts of anxiety, I tend to feel it’s just me. This book opened my eyes to allow me to talk and think my way through my anxious times. And also gave me ideas to understand and help fri...

    Good for those with anxiety and have been attending talk therapy with little to good results. Most of the book is spent rethinking anxiety and its role in your life—and is very good for this reason. I think it would be beneficial to those interested in cognitive behavioral therapy or who have never heard of it. There aren’t many exercises, which would’ve been nice as a way of learning ‘hacking anxiety.’

I really found this book to be useful as I know people that suffer from anxiety in various ways. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and the publisher for the ARC of this book.

    This book goes into a new modern way to look at anxiety. It lists out the different things that we call anxiety and goes step-by-step through factors such as our cell phones, political life and city living. It also goes over the fact that we are prescribed medication more than not when it comes to anxiety.The book speaks of a new way to harness anxiety as we learn to recognize and even embrace our own anxious feelings instead of avoiding. It goes...

    I also received this book as an advanced reader's copy due to the overwhelming response of requests we get on this topic from not only our patrons and community but for our staff as well. Alicia Clark's information was very well explained and communicated throughout the book and she also gave some really useful tips. We will definitely consider this title for our non-fiction collection. 5 stars!

    Hack Your Anxiety has a unique perspective on anxiety. As a life-long anxiety sufferer, I'm not sure viewing it as a motivating factor is terribly helpful. The book is well-written and interesting but I can't honestly recommend it.Many thanks to NetGalley, the publisher, and author for my ARC. All opinions are my own.
