    Book I hope saves my future!!

    I liked the way the author shared her anxiety experiences. I read the book one chapter each day, and try to take notes. The book has opened my eyes of this disorder and the examples that are shown, make me realize I'm not alone or going crazy. But I do have Two things I wish the authored provided, a workbook, and/or a CD/Tape to work with. I know the author does provide a program that you can send for but it is costly.

    Dont be afraid to take a big step

    When I decided to walk into Barnes and Noble looking for a book on how to control anxiety, well, I was very 'anxious', I purchased it feeling stressed and afraid of what I was going to find about myself in this book, and I found the most wonderful thing: The Truth about myself!! and the full understanding of why I feel the way I do, I just finished the book and I can tell you that I have already improved in some areas, it gives you great techniques to help yourself, and it makes you feel like you are not alone, and most of all understood. I recommed it highly!! You can definetely overcome anxiety.

    Lessons from the Road to Recovery

    Often people who suffer from panic attacks believe that are they are in the midst of some kind of psychological or physiological collapse. After all, nothing feels quite like a panic attack. And even after proper diagnosis, the anxious personality still questions the notion that panic attacks are not dangerous. That's why Lucinda Bassett's book is so important. Having suffered from Panic Disorder and having recovered, Lucinda Bassett knows the inner workings of the mind during a panic attack. Lucinda Bassett is able to clearly describe the thoughts and behaviors that reinforce the likelihood of another attack. And she is able to provide examples of thought retraining as well as lifestyle changes that will certainly enable the reader to lessen the severity and intensity of the attacks. Having been diagnosed with Panic Disorder and having worked with cognitive-behavioral strategies to overcome the disorder, I highly recommend this book. Ultimately, this book provides the reader with a kind of travelogue through anxiety. As such, Lucinda Bassett's journey is a hopeful reminder that anxiety disorders can be overcome with hard work, courage and the commitment to act regardless of fear. However, I would also encourage a reader of Lucinda Bassett's book to continue their cognitive-behavioral work with either a therapist, workbook, or audio program for recovery. After all, From Panic to Power can certainly open the door to recovery but the journey through requires a tremendous amount of worthy work. A Cognitive-behavioral approach will provide a person with a whole arsenal of strategies for overcoming Panic Disorder. Thanks, Lucinda!
