"This witty but rigorous study by a neuroscientist and an engineer debunks some of our most common worries - from shark attacks to bedbugs." The Guardian In a world where we hear about the latest misfortunes and disasters as they happen, any time and anywhere, no one is immune to the pervasive effects of anxiety brought on by normal, everyday activity. In this witty investigation of worry, Eric Chudler and Lise Johnson get to the root of our fears, all the while using rigorous science to help tame the anxiety beast. Each topic in this wide-ranging study is subjected to scientific scrutiny and assigned its place on the "worry index." Chudler and Johnson explain why it s only worth worrying about things that are likely to happen and are (somewhat) preventable. Whether you re an unabashed worrier or a stick-your-head-in-the-sand-and-hope-for-the-best sort of person, you ll find something to love in this clever, funny and informative guide to panic-inducing situations.
