    This is probably a helpful book for a very specific set of problems with a rather specific answer for all of them. Basically, the author is a therapist who follows Bowen theory, which says that all of our problems are because of their existence in our relationships. So if you're anxious or stressed or in a terrible marriage or miserable at work, it can all be fixed by being more mature in your relationships in each sphere.

So if you're anxious or stressed or in a terrible marriage or miserable at work, it can all be fixed by being more mature in your relationships in each sphere. Each section starts out with Smith telling the story of a client who was in a miserable situation, and how she helped them see their part in it and react differently. Then she has you ask yourself questions and talks about healthier ways to manage that kind of relationship. It's good advice, but it kind of seems like the whole thing could be a well written blog post and then you could just go "do the same thing in family/social media/friendship/jobs...". I personally have had anxiety all of my life, since early childhood when I was badly bullied in school after school (we moved at least once a year and I was tiny, nerdy, shy and dressed funny) and dealt with some pretty serious childhood traumas and then more traumas in adulthood. I can't say that any of the advice in this book really seemed helpful for my personal anxiety. This isn't the book to turn to when you have PTSD from domestic violence, the murder of a family member or multiple sexual assaults, for instance, or can't stop worrying about your child's terrifying health battles. That said, there is some good advice here for handling interpersonal relationships, especially learning healthier ways to cope with unhealthy people. I read a temporary digital ARC of this book for purpose of review.

    I am a big fan of self-help books in general but I am especially drawn to the idea of confronting our own anxieties. In Everything Isn't Terrible, author Kathleen Smith presents an approachable explanation of the Bowen theory of therapy which involves not only looking at ourselves as individuals but also at our relationship systems... "Because when we feel anxious, we often try to make other people change. We try to calm everyone else down so we can finally relax. But if you can work on managing I am a big fan of self-help books in general but I am especially drawn to the idea of confronting our own anxieties. In Everything Isn't Terrible, author Kathleen Smith presents an approachable explanation of the Bowen theory of therapy which involves not only looking at ourselves as individuals but also at our relationship systems... "Because when we feel anxious, we often try to make other people change. We try to calm everyone else down so we can finally relax. But if you can work on managing yourself in these relationships, it’s likely that your family, your workplace, and even the greater world will calm down a little too." Smith uses this approach in the work she does with her therapy clients and shares valuable examples in her writing regarding this methodology then gives us questions and ways to put these ideas into practice. I really enjoyed this hands-on approach and how interactive this book felt while reading it. The writing is accessible and also shares things we can implement into our lives in a large variety of relationships and circumstances. I love the idea that while we cannot always change the circumstances we are in, we can change how we react to them. "By changing yourself, you change the equation." Thank you to NetGalley and Hachette Books for an advanced copy. All opinions are my own.

    I wanted to write a book that I could hand to my therapy clients with a complete understanding of how I think about anxiety and what to do about it. If you've ever had a challenging relationship with a family member, struggled to stay calm in a romantic relationship, dealt with an anxious boss, or felt generally annoyed by people on the Internet, then this book is for you. I'm proud of this work, and can't wait for people to read it!

I'd never heard of this before, and it was quite interesting to learn about! Kathleen Smith does a great job presenting the ideas in an organized and easy-to-understand fashion. The book is split into 4 sections about your anxious self, family, career, and world. The one about self and family were the most insightful to me. But maybe that's because I'm a college student and haven't really tackled the whole "career" business yet. We'll see in a couple years, I guess. Anyway, this book offered me a new way of looking at things and was written in an engaging, friendly, and nonjudgmental way. I highly recommend it for anybody who feels like the world is a little too big, scary, and/or overwhelming. *Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review! I will be reading Kathleen Smith's other books soon!*

    Everything Isn’t Terrible by Dr. Kathleen Smith couldn’t have come at a better time. I am experiencing significant life changes and have been looking for some guidance, and this book helped conquer some of my insecurities and provided concrete, easy-to-understand information and steps to find calmness and let go of anxiety.

I might as well have highlighted the whole book as there were so many wonderful analogies and gems of wisdom on each page. I was able to get to a place where I noticed that I focus too much on other people and not enough on myself. For me, I identified that focusing on another person is when I try to motivate them, worry about them, guess what they are thinking, and doing things for them they can do for themselves. You do have to read the book in small bits and reflect and think about what the author presents and the questions she poses to grasp the information fully and incorporate the strategies into your daily life. The examples, information, and exercises have you pulling deep within yourself to expose areas of your life and areas inside yourself that are not working or may cause stress and anxiety.  This is a book where you have to be honest with yourself to do the work and make a change. Everything Isn't Terrible is a great book to have on your shelf and refer to it often to live a calmer life. @HachetteBooks @NetGalley

    I really enjoyed this book and plan to reread and reference it in the future. It was a bit of a growing edge for me to think of anxiety from a family systems prospective but it made me want to learn more about Bowen theory. Even if you aren't a therapist or interested in theories, this book was very accessible and had great applications to daily life. I was already a fan and subscriber to Kathleen's newsletter and this book solidified that.

    A super practical and *fun* read. Kathleen Smith is both really funny and an extremely calming influence. The book is centered on anxiety in different parts of your life (career, relationships, social media/what's going on in the world) and uses case study examples and exercises to help demonstrate the ideas. When I started reading this book, I thought I was doing it to help my daughter, who struggles with anxiety. As I read, I realized *I* needed this book just as much as she does.

    Everything Isn’t Terrible: Conquer Your Insecurities, Interrupt Your Anxiety, and Finally Calm Down is written by marriage and family therapist Dr. Kathleen Smith and draws on Bowen theory.

This is a theory of human behaviour that sees anxiety as being rooted in social relationships, and thus work on social relationships must be done to improve anxiety. The book is divided into four sections: the anxious self, anxious relationships, anxious career, and anxious world (which includes social media and politics/religion). Anxiety is described in an emotional sense, and the book doesn’t specifically address anxiety disorders. Each chapter is based on an example of a client she has worked with. At the end of each chapter, there are questions to ask yourself to go through the steps of observe, evaluate, and interrupt, as well as things to practice The book begins with background information on Bowen theory, including the existence of a true self and a pseudo-self that’s susceptible to relationship pressures. “Under-developed beliefs” are susceptible to influence by others, and to work past this the therapy involves developing guiding principles on which to base one’s actions. Differentiation of oneself (including our own thoughts and feelings) from others is a major theme throughout the book. Greater differentiation is equated with greater maturity. The author also observes that people who are more differentiated tend to have more and deeper friendships. The author outlines a number of strategies that families tend to use: distance, conflict arising from emotional reactivity, triangles, over-functioning roles (parenting one’s own parents), and under-functioning roles (helpless child). Bowen theory is a type of family systems theory, so that can probably give you some idea of the lens the author uses in this book. One of the fundamental concepts is that how we behave within our family predicts how we’ll behave in social groups, and to fully address issues in other relationships we have to look to our family relationships first. Community is described as the cake rather than the icing, and feeling settled and calm would be unlikely without having community. This doesn’t overlap all that well with my own worldview, but I thought everything was explained well and it represented a novel way of looking at things. I liked the idea of taking an astronaut’s view rather than a ground view. This was framed as a way to help us calm down and handle situations more maturely, and while on the face of it that does sound a bit condescending, it wasn’t presented that way in the book. What did provoke some internal grumblies for me was when the author minimized the number of bad bosses out there, saying most bosses are imperfect and anxious just like anyone else. While that may be true, it sounds like it comes from the privileged position of not having had to deal with stigma, bullying, and cruelty in the workplace. There were also a few comments here and there that weren’t all that significant but left me wondering, huh? She wrote that while cutting off and staying off of social media might work for a monk or ferry boat captain, most of us will need to be online. It’s minor but it was just one of a few things that left me thinking that the author and I don’t look at the world in quite the same way. I think this book would be a good read for people who can relate to the idea of poor differentiation. Probably a big part of why I didn’t really relate to the book is that, whatever my other issues might be, I’m well-differentiated from my family. If I wasn’t, I think the book would have been a lot more relevant.

    Kathleen Smith shares her experience with and knowledge of the Bowen method of therapy. This therapy helps address anxiety in all different types of relationships (family, friends, love, community and career) by asking that we observe, evaluate, and interrupt our own automatic responses to things in relationships that make us anxious.

    3.5 out of 5 stars. This book is based on Bowen theory, which (I think) is the idea that anxiety comes from and is exacerbated by the automatic reactions we employ in our relationships. As it is a self-help book, the idea is pretty much that you only have control over your own responses to life, and you have to differentiate yourself from the actions and reactions of others.

I agree with other reviewers in that the chapters on family relationships and bad bosses seemed to minimize how toxic and abusive these relationships can be, and I think people looking for that specific kind of help probably will not find this book too helpful.

    This book is short, hilarious, and incredibly insightful. It takes most of us way too long to learn the lesson that we can't change anyone else - we can only change ourselves. Kathleen Smith does a great job of showing her readers that getting caught in someone else's whirlwind is actually a choice. We can learn to calm ourselves down, and this is the kindest gift we can give the people around us. I've found myself thinking about this book frequently after finishing it.

When I become anxious about something I can ask myself how a calm person would handle the situation or choose to respond, and it helps me get closer to choosing that as my frame of reference. It is healing to think I can find a way to choose not to repeat behaviors that exacerbate anxiety. But Smith is open enough about her own struggles that you see that we can't conquer it entirely - we can just learn how to cope with it more effectively. And that is life changing.

    3.5/5 - Licensed therapist Kathleen Smith breaks down a number of common situations/relationships that often cause people great anxiety and what they can do to try and combat these feelings and resulting fears. The examples she gives are pretty specific scenarios, but I definitely found it easy to relate the cases back to myself. I found myself often saying “whoa, that’s totally me!”. Is this going to cure the most severe cases of anxiety? No, probably not.

This was a very quick and easy read too, I finished it in two sittings and I walked away with quite a few takeaways. One thing I wish there was a chapter about is anxiety as it relates to parenting - but that might be a topic with enough to fill it’s own book.

    I read about this author/therapist on Slate and decided to give this book a read during a particularly anxious month. I don't read a lot of self-help books but I found this one really good and helpful - very practical, down-to-earth, and manageable. It has advice for specific situations, and is really good on helping you learn how - and why - to set boundaries. A good one for anyone prone to anxiety or who needs an occasional fine-tuning on unhelpful thoughts.

Then, she shares questions to ask yourself and respond to that will help you overcome personal challenges.

    This was one of those books that I would never have read in a million years before, but I got a librarian's copy from libro.fm and thought I'd give it a go. And honestly, I found it quite informative and maybe, almost helpful. Smith's points are well-reasoned and logical.

I found her case compelling that most of the issues we face have their roots in anxiety, and she recommends reasonable tools to address it at home, work, romance, and more. I think I'd like to sit down with this book in print so I would have time to sit and chew over ideas and jot down some notes, particularly on her action plans. I also can easily think of several other individuals I'd like to recommend this to, although I can't think of a single person who wouldn't benefit from it, at least a little bit.
