'Normally I don't think books like this are very helpful, but Change your thinking is really helping me to change my life. When I started reading it, I immediately felt like I could get back in control and actually improve what I had accepted as the status quo. The author gives a lot of simple tips that work, and the exercises are a big help. I highly recommend this book to anyone suffering from anxiety or depression.'
