Here’s what readers of Self-Coaching are saying

This is without a doubt the best self help book that I have ever read and put into practice. If I just had one self help book it would be this one.

Andy | January 2, 2015

I stumbled upon this book while looking for help with social anxiety that I’ve experienced since childhood. I was desperate for something that worked and had spent thousands of dollars on false promises. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much, but I was trying to be hopeful. To my surprise the concepts in this book worked! 

Valerie marsh | August 8, 2015

It took me a second time reading through this book to fully appreciate it. At first, I just felt like Dr. Luciani’s writing style was a little too simplistic. Almost like it’s written for people who have no prior knowledge of anxiety and how it works on you. Now I see that’s possibly one of the best aspects about it. Once I stopped looking for the high-level, psychological jargon and recognized just how practical this book is, I began to see just how useful it was going to be.

Hesso | October 18, 2012

In a word…”Awesome!” This is such a great book and program and a must have for anyone, who has ever dealt with any degree of depression or anxiety. 

Jac | March 19, 2015

I don’t review very often, but this book has made such a positive impact on my life that I had to throw in my five stars as well. Buy the book…for the price of a couple drinks from Starbucks you could be well on your way to feeling so much better.

Shannon | January 12, 2013

For me, this book along with the author’s other book “The Power of Self-Coaching: The Five Essential Steps to Creating the Life You Want” have truly been life altering.

Tag Jones | October 11, 2018

Luciani is certainly devoted to what he believes. He maintains a web site in support of the book where he freely dispenses advice (with appropriate disclaimers), but without trying to sell anything. Quite a guy and a very different approach to self-promotion.

Jerry Saperstein | April 30, 2008

Finally, a book that puts you back in control of your life. I read books about addictions, good to know but no help. I read books about depression and anxiety all circumstantial not me. Finally, a book anyone can fit into and use to live a better life.

Kindle Customer | April 25, 2014

I just finished listening to the Self-Coaching audio CD, and it is wonderful. When Dr. Luciani reads his book, it feels like you are sitting with him in a comfortable chair, hearing him talk to you one on one. You can actually hear how much he cares about his listeners in his voice. I am sure that I will listen to this audio book again and again. A+.

Father Greg Hoover | January 1, 2018

 I have multiple books on anxiety and depression, and this truly is one of the best. Upbeat and catchy, with a lot of small coaching tips throughout that are very helpful. I don’t normally write reviews, but this book was quite good.

Christine | October 24, 2011

If you even think you may be suffering from anxiety, stress, depression or anxiety attacks, don’t wait one second longer. Get this book. It will literally change your life. I have been reading and studying personal improvement from Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy plus a whole lot more for years. In one week’s time, this book changed my life.
