This is not a knock at the author, who based on his credentials seems like someone who could help, rather the hype on the cover makes it seem like this is author cure all. The cover hype reminds me of those "miracle cures" that you can buy at the fair. But instead of getting strong acting medicine, you end up with a bottle of soda.click here
Little Ways to Keep Calm and Carry On: Twenty Lessons for Managing Worry, Anxiety, and Fear
For someone who struggles with panic attacks and anxiety, this book did the opposite of helping. While it did not cause a panic attack, reading the examples of anxiety in the book did cause my anxiety to rise. I am sure this is not the intention of the author, but it happened. But as I attempt to look at this book objectively, I do see the merits for someone who has a lot of worries.
Some of the tips are extremely boiled down versions of things I have been taught in sessions with various people in the psychological field. So it does have merits, but some of the tips boil down to stop worrying.
For a worry-wart this is valuable advice to hear, for someone like me, that is easier said than done. I gave it two stars based on how I was able to relate to it with my situation. I can see how some may find it invaluable to theirs. So if I might boil down my review to the crux, don't expect this book to necessarily cure all forms of anxiety.

May 14, Dawn rated it liked it. There were some interesting points made in this book.
Do I tend to "awfulize" - imagine the worst-case scenario - problems? Yes, and I saw myself in other descriptions, too, such as trying to avoid problems. I liked the chapters titled "Perfect solutions don't exist" and "Sometimes you can take control of bad situations, but sometimes not.
But I was hoping for more of a personal touch. Although there are a few personal anecdotes, this is There were some interesting points made in this book. Although there are a few personal anecdotes, this is mostly a somewhat clinical, repetitive reminder of what you should do or try in certain stressful or fearful scenarios.
Some of the tips were helpful, but I finished the book with a vague feeling of dissatisfaction. If you're looking for warm fuzzies, this may not be the book for you. Jun 25, McKenzie Richardson rated it it was ok Shelves: non-fiction , male-authors. A cute little book filled with pretty common sense advice. It's an easy read, but not really all that profound or ground-breaking. The basic advice in the book is "don't worry; it's not that bad". I see how this may be beneficial for some people with normal day-to-day anxiety, but definitely isn't helpful for someone with any anxiety disorders or people who have to deal with constant high-stress situations such as discrimination.

How to Keep Calm and Carry On: Stop worrying and start enjoying your life by Daniel Freeman
Once those wires are connected and they connect for a ton of different reasons — traumatic moment, a chemical imbalance, genetics, etc… — it is ever-complicated to disconnect and untangle those wires. It may start there, but it becomes very physical and very biological very quickly.
The mind navigates the body. Some people are more anxious than others. Some people produce more types of hormones and chemicals than others. There is no "normal. I probably spend too much time thinking about my finals days. With that, I can recognize that stress and anxiety is as much a human trait as joy, love and happiness. In fact, finding and accepting the balance is key here. Humans have a full spectrum of emotions. In the end, we all deal with this spectrum of emotions in different ways. Some have a drink at night to calm down, others smoke something funky.
Some might jump out of a plane, while others might go looking for a Swami in the Himalayans. Yes, the good, the bad, the ugly and the stressful.
