Good Basic Information
Dr. (EDD) Clark gives a nice overview for those who want to know a little bit more about living with chronic anxiety. She brings a helpful holistic point of view and advice to those who might be suffering and need information. Some of this is very basic and some more sophisticated with new or different information, such as on unusual herbs or color therapy. This is definitely a useful book and I'd suggest it for those who are unsure what to do about chronic anxiety. Everyone dealing with anxiety will get some ideas here.Was this review helpful?
