Book of the week: Just Enough Anxiety

Author: Robert H Rosen
Price: £12.70
Publisher: Portfolio
Pages: 256
ISBN: 1591841976

Author Robert Rosen refers to anxiety as “the hidden driver of business success”, and he is passionate about his subject. The more squeamish among you might find the drawing of the brain on page 33 off-putting, but this is more than made up for by the chapter on ‘realistic optimism’. There are plenty of quizzes to help you work out how anxious you are – and even what type of anxiety you suffer from – and case studies from a variety of functions. Rosen gives plenty of advice, too, but this book has such an academic textbook feel to it that you will struggle to get through it without breaking it down into manageable chunks.
