Based on Phil’s experience of dealing with anxiety, anger and depression, this book shows that if you want to change your view of the world and how you relate to people, you can do so. The fears and anxieties about taking such a step were in his head and he now wishes he’d appreciated how unimportant many of them were. Ditto the misconceptions he had about how to go about fixing things.
There are many books by expert clinicians describing what can go wrong with the mind and how to fix it. The books by laymen writing about their experience often don’t ring true, claiming that the author went from being a complete mess to the happiest and most successful person on the planet and that by reading their books, the same will happen to you – apparently.
The author has great respect for the experts and doesn’t begrudge anyone who has turned their life around, but feels he is saying something that hasn’t been seen in print before. His claims are much lower-key than most – and more personal and realistic.
