In the book's prefatory material, Doctor and Ada P. Kahn (coauthors, Facing Fears: The Sourcebook for Phobias, Fears, and Anxieties) and Christine Adamec (The Unofficial Guide to Eldercare) differentiate phobias and fears while briefly explaining the evolutionary basis for-and sociological origins of-uncontrollable dread. Arranged alphabetically, entries explain symptoms and treatment options; the more complex entries conclude with bibliographic references. Occasionally, the authors awkwardly reach beyond their intended scope, incorporating entries on physical illnesses whose logical by-product is distress. For mental health collections.
