Change Your Brain, Change Your Life
This is not “simply” a book about anxiety. It has sections dealing with all sorts of emotional issues: anger, focus, anxiety, depression, obsession, lack of focus and memory issues. This book is a thorough academic (yet practical) book about the relationship between our brain patterns and problem-behavior that can help us cure a myriad of mental problems.
One of the major differences between this book and others is the stance on using prescription drugs. Many books take a stance against these drugs or at least offer alternatives without drugs, while this book lays out many strong arguments for drugs in some situations and lets the readers know when they should be used and when avoided. Although I am strongly against over medication and I think many are too ready to turn to drugs as a solution to problems, there certainly are times when drugs might be the answer, and I like the balanced approach this book brings to the subject.
