    A Book Review by a Success Story

    This is a compilations of 31 true stories of people who have overcome panic, obsessive-compulsive disorders, agoraphobia (fear of leaving the house) and other disorders relating to panic and anxiety. This book includes resources to access such as websites, self-help groups, and organizations. Paul Foxman, Ph.D. offers a 5-page introduction in which he introduces himself as one who has suffered from anxiety, discusses the commentaries he writes at the end of each essay and notes that although most of the authors are women, he feels that anxiety afflicts both genders equally but men seek help less frequently. He leaves his introduction with the following words, which really is the mission of the book, ¿These stories are full of hope and promise for anxiety recovery. May they fulfill their mission to spread the word and inspire many others to conquer their anxieties.¿ Each chapter is a story and is shown on the Content¿s page. In addition, Glatzer has organized the topics addressed to make disorders, therapies and feelings very easy to find. The commentaries by Foxman are critical to this book. Without his expertise it would still be an interesting collection of stories. It would still give hope and guidance to those who suffer or want to understand someone who is suffering but he offers a professional perspective. He notes in his introduction that some of his commentaries may seem to contradict how the writer recovered. It is his intent to offer additional suggestions and other considerations. Glatzer¿s hope is that people realize they are not alone while reading these 31 essays describing very personal situations and feelings. The authors have opened themselves up to the world. You will find a couple of professional writers, you will read stories by people who just like to write, and others who perhaps never intended to see their story in print. Each essay contains a short biography of the author. I found that more often than not most of the authors used some of Foxman¿s approaches even if they didn¿t know they were. I like Foxman¿s commentaries a lot. I like the fact that not only does he explain in a professional way what often times the authors do not do because they are telling their story, but he also talks about how the various conditions came to be (perhaps multiple stresses). He also talks about physical symptoms, which are an important part of this book for people who are seeking help or seeking to understand if they need help. He explains very well that the anxiety associated with the physical symptoms often brings about more anxiety. Foxman also tells the reader that if you are not being heard by the medical community, keep looking. There are many stories in which the medical community missed the accurate diagnosis and the authors suffered for years being told there was nothing wrong with them. The book is listed under psychology/self-help on the cover and I would imagine it being used in classrooms. Rarely will a student or an onlooker have a look into what panic and anxiety is like from a first-hand perspective with no clinical jargon or going back to one¿s childhood to find out the answers to why it happened. Some authors do attempt to figure out the whys, but for many, the whys are much less important than the ¿what can I do and who will help me" questions. The authors of these stories come from various backgrounds and suffer from various disorders but they are all related to panic and anxiety. We all panic at some time and we all feel anxious. This book will allow you to examine if what you are feeling is normal or situational anxiety or feelings that are ones that perhaps are not going to go away by themselves. This is an easy to read book. Foxman¿s commentaries are excellent and are also easy to read, free from any heavy clinical words or words you won¿t understand as a layperson. Glatzer has put together a nicely laid out anthology. As an author in the book, I will warn

    So inspiring for people with anxiety disorders!

    The stories in this book are so inspirational. I learned many new techniques. I really liked that the psychologist talked about the spiritual side of conquering anxiety. I was feeling hopeless when I bought this book, but now I feel that there's hope again. People really do get better! I recommend this book highly to anyone who is struggling with an anxiety disorder. The book talks about panic disorder, agoraphobia, social anxiety disorder, OCD, PTSD, emetophobia, and body dysmorphic disorder. It's a great read.
