Not to Worry!: How to Free Yourself from Unnecessary Anxiety and Channel Your Worries Into Positive Action

Mary McClure Goulding, M.S.W., Author, Robert L. Goulding, With William Morrow & Company $16.95 (240p) ISBN 978-0-688-08480-6
This is the fourth self-help book by the Gouldings, family therapists in California. Stating that worriers are ``nice''--i.e., dutiful, bright, creative--persons, the authors straightaway dismiss the nasty folk, who, presumably, must seek counsel elsewhere. The guide contains 100 questions for the sufferer from crippling anxieties to answer, thus pinpointing the sources of ``what-if'' fears, then offers a six-part program to effect a cure. Case histories presented of men and women who break the worry habit exemplify the rewards of acting on the author's advice, which is sound if elementary: do what you can to avert a possible threat instead of agonizing uselessly. First serial to Family Circle; Troll Book Club alternate. (Mar.)
