    Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this ARC, all opinions presented are my own.Well formatted and well thought out. Hack Your Anxiety had some really good useful points and tools in there to use your anxiety and harness it's potential versus being a slave to it.

Hack Your Anxiety had some really good useful points and tools in there to use your anxiety and harness it's potential versus being a slave to it. Clark is a well-written author who used both scientific facts and personal notes which really created a well-rounded self-help book.My hang-ups with this are that I feel these techniques would be better suited for a one-on-one or group (in-person) therapy session. As someone who suffers from anxiety on the daily, it came across a little too gung-ho and felt at times like it was belittling how crippling anxiety can be. I think viewing anxiety as something that can be harnessed at times is a great perspective and lens to view it through - however, using it as MOTIVATION is the issue I took with the overall takeaway.Accepting your anxiety and working through it is super important. Most of us with anxiety know it never really goes away. It sits in your chest and through time and therapy, you learn to control it and mitigate the bouts and episodes of when it becomes overwhelming. However, I felt the weight and seriousness of anxiety was a little glossed over here. I also expected a wholly scientific book and I didn't much appreciate the spirituality added in but I understand that, that is a large part of many people's lives so I can understand why Clark may have put that in.Overall, there were some interesting points and things I can use to work on but it lost 2 stars for me because it felt a bit cursory and short-sighted.

It goes into a lot of prior research done by the big names in psychology as well as mentioning spiritual teachings. The author also gives the reader lots and lots of first name examples on the redirection of the anxious energy we all feel. Carefully researched and written, this book would be good for just about any reader. We all feel anxious from one time to another. This book could be a big help too many.

    I also received this book as an advanced reader's copy due to the overwhelming response of requests we get on this topic from not only our patrons and community but for our staff as well. Alicia Clark's information was very well explained and communicated throughout the book and she also gave some really useful tips. We will definitely consider this title for our non-fiction collection. 5 stars!

    Hack Your Anxiety has a unique perspective on anxiety. As a life-long anxiety sufferer, I'm not sure viewing it as a motivating factor is terribly helpful. The book is well-written and interesting but I can't honestly recommend it.Many thanks to NetGalley, the publisher, and author for my ARC. All opinions are my own.
