Synopsis

Synopsis

For everyone panicked by disaster, How to Handle Trouble -- written while its author struggled with bone cancer -- can be the best of allies. With rock-bottom honesty, John Carmody points the way out of trouble not through any secret expertise, but through simple techniques that come "like a warranty with your basic human equipment." Introducing us to all our inner and outer resources, he shows that fear and anxiety need not rule our days.

Carmody writes about the real power of thinking, feeling, sharing, deciding, and praying, and even of the joy that comes when we are fighting a good fight. In short, this book is both balm and tonic -- everyday wisdom to help us make sense of crisis and work through it. It just may be the most important book you'll ever read.
