In “Fight Back: End the Cycles of Anxiety and Depression,” Oglesbee twines his years of experience helping others heal from these disorders with his personal story of recovery from them.

“Fight Back” provides a comforting, holistic approach to identifying and managing symptoms of mental illness and reframing destructive learned responses to create positive, healthy ones.

I call these anchors, and they keep us stuck,” Oglesbee wrote in the introduction to his book. “… I believe you have chosen this book for a reason. I believe that the philosophies and system I teach can help you get on your feet to begin living life the way you truly want. I believe this book can send you well on your way to freedom, happiness, and peace.”

“Fight Back” is also a useful self-help tool for anyone seeking to improve their interpersonal problem-solving and communication abilities.
