    My therapist recommended this book to me. I picked it up today! So far, this book is a life saver. There is something in there for everyone. If one thing don't work for you, that's okay. There will be something else that will. I like how you can write in the book or make copies of the pages. Best $25 I have ever spent.

    It's estimated that nearly 25 million Americans experience some

    It's estimated that nearly 25 million Americans experience some form of anxiety disorder that affects daily life, and for some becomes debilitating. Knowledge about what one is dealing with and how to overcome it is the best medicine and this book is a valuable resource for that kind of truly helpful and practical information. When I personally experienced a form anxiety disorder several years ago, I wish I had known about this book as it is one of the most helpful that I've read.



    Written in an easy to understand style, the first chapters outline the various forms of anxiety disorders and their possible causes, followed by chapters on ways to recover such as relaxation, exercise, self-talk, coping with panic attacks, nutrition, etc. One section I found especially helpful was "Deflate the Danger" in the chapter on coping with panic attacks as it discussed ways to calm the physical symptoms, outlined why the things one thinks will happen physically during such an episode (heart attack, fainting, etc.) won't, and gave helpful information on how to break the connection between the thought process and the resulting symptoms. The chapter on exercise can provide motivation for embracing an active lifestyle to counter anxiety. The chapter on self-esteem is equally helpful with the tips on how to replace negative and self-sabotaging thinking with positive thoughts.



    Each chapter includes some kind of plan of action, questions to answer, affirmations, journaling prompts, writing goals, etc., to help the reader become proactive in overcoming the effects of anxiety. I think anyone who suffers from any of the many forms of anxiety, whether mild or severe, or knows of someone who does will greatly benefit from this workbook whether done to supplement counseling or privately.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

    I love that this book seems to have just enough information and exercises to develop any skills that I want to try to deal with perfectionism, anxiety, stress, and feelings of inadequacy.

    This book was recommended to me when I was going through an episode of severe depression and anxiety, and I found it extremely helpful. Since I am a physician, I have recomended this to hundreds of patients as well. I think it treats anxiety, panic and phobias in a very holistic and well rounded approach. It's easy to understand without being too simplistic. If you are willing to invest the time and energy to do what the workbook suggests, you will go a long way towards recovery. One of the best "text or workbooks"I've ever purchased.
