    This book could have been condensed to an article. He keeps repeating the same information over and over in different ways and different contexts. Good information, just not really enough to make reading a book worthwhile.

    This is a good introduction for someone who hasn't investigated this self-help genre before. There wasn't any new information here for me, perhaps because Lawlis's book has been summarized so many times on television. It did serve to remind me of the power of music to relieve anxiety symptoms.

    I'd probably give this book 3.5 stars if I could. I found it to be 90% about why people feel stress (most of it boils down to trauma) and 10% about what to do about it. I felt like I could have done a google search and come up with just as useful information.I did like the case stories he used in his book to illustrate his points.The real problem I had with this book is the problem I have with many non-fiction books; they are very repetitive. The same points are reiterated so many times, it becomes exhausting and I only want to skim through most of the middle and end of the book because I feel like I've read it all previously in the book. That's why it took me 9 months to get through it. The last 20 pages were very helpful, but I'm not sure why those weren't mentioned earlier in the book - given the title.I did glean some useful tools for dealing with stress - like retraining neuropathways, etc. But I felt the book was more about trauma and PTSD (which I have), relabeled as "stress".

    Incorrect data in this book. For example, motor function occurs in frontal lobe (specifically pre central gyrus - primary motor cortex), not parietal lobe. Okay book if you are unfamiliar with anxiety, depression etc. If you are more than familiar with your symptoms and possible solutions, this book doesn't offer much new. Also, too broad. It addresses disorders ranging from anxiety to depression and from ADHD to obsessive compulsive. Although there is co-morbidity between these disorders, not everyone would be diagnosable with more than one. The 45 day plan gives daily activities but some activities are tailored to a specific disorder, so it's not really a 45 day plan for everyone.

    In my opinion Mr. Lawlis did a great job with this self-help book. There is a lot of interesting information in it that shows us how the brain can be rewired and your thought processes can be changed. Granted the book does cover many different topics ranging from stress overload to OCD and PTSD. There are exercises at the end of the book that I think are helpful and a great addition to the book. It is a good book to read if you are truly wanting to retrain your brains way of thinking. It is not a simple solution, as there is none, but requires work and dedication on your part. Great job Mr. Lawlis on what I considered a very helpful book.

    I sat next to this man on a plane, and not only was he incredibly nice, he is clearly very bright and accomplished. Dr. Phil was his student, and they continue to work together. I asked him if he'd written any books, and he answered, "yes. 12."So I'd like to check them out, although since I don't have a child with ADD I'm not so interested in those...
