Not the traditional #selfhelpbook and I‘ve rec‘d this before, but it doesn‘t hurt to repeat. This book helps you hone your survival instincts - helping you tell the difference between those signals and unnecessary worry. Also provides tips for how to read people/know when they‘re trying to manipulate you. A must read

So I‘ve been following the case of the missing girl in Iowa, and thought it might be a good idea to learn more about staying safe in this cruel world. 🙏🏼 she is found soon.

Coincidentally, finished this book this week. This book was ridiculously good, written in 1997 before the Columbine shooting is still relevant and informative.

Everyone should read this…or at least all women. It helps you to understand the subconscious signs you receive and how to listen to your intuition. Even more by giving you the tools to know your body will give you signals when you're truly in danger, it will help lessen anxiety/worry you may feel. #192019challenge #192019

When an author you read yrs ago pops up in your current read & makes you think I really should re-read that now! Perfect timing for #Recommendsday

A lot about trusting your instincts, and how to listen to your inner voice better.... and to think I read this back in '97 or '98, years before Columbine or 9/11, the anthrax scares or any of the mass shootings/terrorist scares of our current times. Definitely a recommend & time for a re-read.

Excellent book! Should be required reading.

MyNamesParadise I have this book!! Of course I never read it 🙈 3y
AnnieReads @MyNamesParadise I strongly encourage you to read it. It's quite a fantastic read! 3y
MyNamesParadise @AnnieReads does it give perspective on ppl in modern times who have anxiety disorders? I have GAD so I experience more fear than the average person 😟 3y
AnnieReads @MyNamesParadise I don't know. Maybe? I can tell you that it was assigned to me as part of cognitive behavior therapy and I for sure got a lot out of it. 3y
MyNamesParadise @AnnieReads oh ok it should be a good read then!! Thanks! 3y

One of the books that reassures me my paranoia is reasonable.
