In this audiobook, I explain how beliefs, emotions, and physiological responses combine to create over-reactions. I examine envy, rejection, criticism, and control—everyday dynamics that frequently trigger overreactions, as well as ways to help you restore calm so that you can access responses that are thoughtful and appropriate. I also suggest ways to challenge beliefs and make peace with the past so that you will be less likely to react to situations that have triggered overreactions in the past.
