    Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this ARC, all opinions presented are my own. Well formatted and well thought out. Hack Your Anxiety had some really good useful points and tools in there to use your anxiety and harness it's potential versus being a slave to it. Clark is a well-written author who used both scientific facts and personal notes which really created a well-rounded self-help book.

Well formatted and well thought out. Hack Your Anxiety had some really good useful points and tools in there to use your anxiety and harness it's potential versus being a slave to it. Clark is a well-written author who used both scientific facts and personal notes which really created a well-rounded self-help book. My hang-ups with this are that I feel these techniques would be better suited for a one-on-one or group (in-person) therapy session. As someone who suffers from anxiety on the daily, it came across a little too gung-ho and felt at times like it was belittling how crippling anxiety can be. I think viewing anxiety as something that can be harnessed at times is a great perspective and lens to view it through - however, using it as MOTIVATION is the issue I took with the overall takeaway. Accepting your anxiety and working through it is super important. Most of us with anxiety know it never really goes away. It sits in your chest and through time and therapy, you learn to control it and mitigate the bouts and episodes of when it becomes overwhelming. However, I felt the weight and seriousness of anxiety was a little glossed over here. I also expected a wholly scientific book and I didn't much appreciate the spirituality added in but I understand that, that is a large part of many people's lives so I can understand why Clark may have put that in. Overall, there were some interesting points and things I can use to work on but it lost 2 stars for me because it felt a bit cursory and short-sighted.

    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 never visited a doctor because I didn’t even realise t 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 never visited a doctor because I didn’t even realise that what I was experiencing was anxiety until I met other sufferers of the condition. In my second year, I grew confident and familiar with my surroundings and situation to the point that I really found myself again. So I didn’t bother to visit a doctor about the symptoms I’d experienced in the past thinking it’s gone for good. But then I passed through my last year and into my MA and symptoms of my anxiety are starting to surface again. I hate not having a plan and not knowing what to expect, and now I have no job, I have no idea what’s in store for my future and that scares me. To add to that I don’t really see anyone other than my family and spend a lot of time at home. I feel like every part of me that I’d build while at uni is being torn down again. Because of that, I decided to request a book about Anxiety from Netgallery to see if I could learn some strategies to help deal with what I’m experiencing at the moment. Hack Your Anxiety is very positive. It’s all about using your Anxiety to your advantage. Harnessing those feelings and instead of trying to suppress them, embracing them. It’s full of history, case studies and scientific explanations. But it was more like an academic textbook or techniques for group sessions than for helping yourself at home. It relied too much on positive thinking for my liking and not enough on actually dealing with the problem at hand. Positive thinking is easier said than done when your heart is thumping and the fears overtake you. I believe that this book could help some people, especially long-term readers of the self-help genres and anyone wanting to know more about Anxiety. But personally, this book wasn’t right for me. I found the positive advice hard. I had the attitude that embracing anxiety is easier said than done and the book was way too long for me. I ended up skipping whole chapters just to try and get to the advice and even then, I DNFed before I even got to the heart of the advice I was looking for. It’s over 460 pages of black and white text, and the E-edition I had didn’t have a working contents page so I could skip easily to the chapters that mattered more to me. I was looking for some quick fix tips, something I could put in place right away and start using. But instead, I got pages and pages of history, science and other people’s stories that I wasn’t interested in reading. Once again this is purely personal preference and I wish I could have kept reading to find some of the book’s tips that may have helped me. But I couldn’t force myself to keep reading any longer, and skipping through the chapters to try and find the pieces of advice hidden amongst all the exposition was impossible. I can imagine that you either love this book or you hate it. For me, it really wasn’t my cup of tea and I’m going to have to search elsewhere to try and find some tips to deal with my anxiety. Hopefully in a format that will capture my interest more. But for others, this book’s positivity and optimism will be a great help, and the information is very intelligent and interesting for those who want to learn more about anxiety and its history. But personally, I’m looking for something with more colour. Something bolder and something more clear-cut and exciting. See the full review here: https://racheleanne.wordpress.com/201...

    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.

    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.’

    Good techniques that may possiblyhelp one with anxiety. Very useful and precise information. Various subjects are discussed in a easy to understand method. 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. Although I received the book in this manner, it did not affect my opinion of this book nor my review

    Anxiety is a hot topic lately, and I think there is no one that has zero anxiety in their life. The main message from this book is really to listen to that anxiety, that nagging voice inside your head, and don't just assume it needs to be shut down every time it pops up. There may be some logic to the anxiety, and it needs to be understood. The other component is that anxiety is not always a bad thing, and needs to be thought of as such.

If you cringe away from stress and anxiety, you form a negative association with it and it makes the situation worse. It is possible for some people to delve into this anxiety and to use it for a positive energy. That is what this book is about. I found it to be a good read, and was easy to set down and pick up again. I could follow along with all the lines of thought and I enjoyed the message.

    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.

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 into a lot of prior research done by the big names in psychology as well as mentioning spiritual teachings. The author also gives the reader lots and lots of first name examples on the redirection of the anxious energy we all feel. Carefully researched and written, this book would be good for just about any reader. We all feel anxious from one time to another. This book could be a big help too many.

    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.
