"When you're anxious, one of the best things you can do
is learn about your feelings and how your brain often makes you
feel more anxious than you should. In this book, Dr. Dan Peters
tells you everything you need to know to take charge of your
anxious feelings. Read it. You'll see."
- Dr. Brock Eide, co-author of The Dyslexic Advantage and The Mislabeled Child"This book is a gift for anyone -anyone- who worries too much. It is immensely understandable, readable, and most important of all, actionable."
- Partick Lencioni, president, The Table Group, best-selling author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and The Advantage"I used to run away when I got scared. When I learned that it was my amygdala causing the Worry Monster to visit me, it made me feel better. I realized that I was going to be okay and that the Worry Monster was just trying to trick me. Counting to 100 and taking a break help me get rid of my worry so I can think. The Worry Monster still comes, but I have conquered him before, so I know I can defeat him again."
- Jack Roy, Warrior"When we focus on anything, we can make it better. Reading From Worrier to Warrior helped me finally learn the 'why' of my anxiety and not only has given me tools to conquer my own fears and worries, but has helped me to serve as a "guide on the side" to my son, who experiences anxiety as well."
- Dana, Warrior and a parent of a Warrior"From Worrier to Warrior has inspired me to work through my worries. Other kids tell their stories in the book, and that helped me think that if they can do, it so can I. The book taught me who the Worry Monster is, and that has helped me think of ways to fight him."
- Lily, Warrior"Tweens and teens (and their parents) will find this book invaluable. Way too many children and teens suffer with anxiety, without any clue how to diminish their fears. The strategies provided in this well-written guide can't help but turn worriers into warriors!"
