Book News Annotation:
A useful alternative to positive thinking is possible thinking. Resting on this premise, this book provides four steps for overcoming anxiety or depression, and breaks them down further into useful strategies. "Try this" exercises regularly appear along with occasional humorous illustrations. Chansky, a clinical psychologist and founder of the Children's and Adult Center for OCD and Anxiety, notes in the introduction that these features are intentionally included to also engage the right brain. Clearly written, it expands the focus beyond just anxiety and provides sections on assessing one's strengths and cultivating compassion and gratitude.

We all know what is healthy to think and what is not, much like we know that eating an apple is better than gorging on donuts. But once we start thinking anxious thoughts, it is tough to move from disaster to reality. Our brain can ruin our day.
The roadmap to happiness can be found in Freeing Yourself from Anxiety. Unlike most guides, Dr. Tamar Chansky’s book explains that the solution is not positive thinking, but possible thinking. Armed with her strategies, readers can achieve accurate perceptions of their lives that can liberate them from fear and perfectionism.
For the 25 percent of Americans who have an anxiety problem, Freeing Yourself from Anxiety provides the step-by-step tools for living stress free, without medications.
