“I Enjoyed Reading This Book!” Grounded in psychological concepts, Stanley Popovich’s book provides the reader with a practical set of techniques useful in overcoming anxiety and worry found in everyday life circumstances as well as in extraordinary or traumatizing events. He uses everyday stories and narratives to help illustrate techniques that are useful in overcoming fear. Real-world exercises are encouraged that would help the reader put into practice some of the concepts described. The author highlights the power of leaning on God during times of hardship. The book concludes with a clear and down-to-earth summary of advice to encourage those struggling with anxiety and fear in daily life. Though not a professional in the psychology field, many of Stanley Popovich’s suggestions were indeed grounded in cognitive behavioral concepts. As a mental health clinician, I would certainly see the utility in using this book with patients.
