For self-helpers, there is one essential question that needs answering. Is self-help helpful?
The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety has taken this question head on. They took a group of 503 people to test out whether using the workbook for 12 weeks made a difference to your anxiety. And, what they found was that it did!
This is the only self-help book that I know of (at the time of writing) that was written and then piloted to see whether it does in fact help. This makes it an extraordinary contribution.
