Synopses & Reviews
Nationally recognized radio news personality Jeff Bell became a leading voice in the mental health community and a sought-after speaker with his OCD memoir, "Rewind, Replay, Repeat." Here Bell explains the principles of applied belief that allowed him to make such a remarkable recovery from this so-called "doubting disease." Featuring interview excerpts with some of the nation's leading anxiety experts and other prominent figures in many fields (including actress Patty Duke, author and meditation teacher Sylvia Boorstein, and CIA Director Leon Panetta), Bell shows readers how to use the concept of serving the greater good to create meaning and direction...even in the face of great uncertainty. With candor and warm humor, Bell offers practical techniques for pushing through the discomfort of uncertainty, and demonstrates how a shift from decisions based on fear and doubt to ones based on service and purpose can transform any life.
