Author(s): Gwendoline Smith (Dr Know)

Teenage Issues | NZ Non Fiction | Health and Nutrition

From the author of international bestsellers The Book of Knowing and The Book of Overthinking.  

There's a lot of angst around these days. This heightened sense of fear, concern, insecurity and uncertainty can be overwhelming.

Bestselling author of The Book of Overthinking and The Book of Knowing Gwendoline Smith explains what angst is and the ways in which deep anxiety can manifest.

Gwendoline then drills down into social anxiety, which is often underdiagnosed but is one of the most common of the anxiety family. Using simple, clear language and humorous illustrations, Gwendoline gives detailed step-by-step advice on how to cope.  

Bella's Review:

“What if?” thinking is a very potent trigger for all forms of anxiety. It’s OK to be an introvert. The goal of therapy is to be comfortable in your own skin.

The Book of Angst is the third book by clinical psychologist Gwendoline Smith (aka Dr Know) in her series on mental health - the first two are The Book of Knowing and The Book of Overthinking. Anecdotal, informative and sometimes funny, she explains angst and the ways in which anxiety can manifest. She provides tips and step-by-step methods to work through different forms of anxiety in everyday life, using clear language and lively illustrations.

Smith applies her practical knowledge to a range of situations, such as panic disorder, eating disorder, sexual response and anxiety and social anxiety. She helps readers understand why they may be experiencing feelings of anxiousness and recommends treatment methods. However, she notes that these are simply suggestions. This book cannot diagnose someone with deep anxiety or depression. A valuable resource for teens and, due to its content, for adults to use with younger children.
