Leahy wants to help chronic worriers manage a habit that can be destructive and unproductive. Deftly unveiling the reasons that well-meaning attempts to help worriers often fail, Leahy also offers worry-reduction strategies that include sometimes surprising suggestions. Worry at specific times, he advises. Desensitize yourself to your deepest worries by repeating them until they become boringly familiar and less powerful: "I may die of cancer. I may die of cancer. . . ." Narrator Mike Chamberlain reads clearly and capably, helped by Leahy's bullet-pointed prose. Though listeners may occasionally catch themselves wondering whether another reader might have offered greater connection to the material or to Leahy's humor, Chamberlain's delivery does not interfere with the book's valuable message.
