Editorial Reviews

Edward J. Kowalewski
Outstanding, long overdue... This is the most complete, best organized, most easily understood single source on the subject.
Dr. Leaman (family medicine, Pennsylvania State U.) presents anxiety as a real disease with identifiable biologic and genetic causes as well as contributing social and environmental factors. He writes for the lay audience (although health care providers could benefit from the information) and discusses how to get help. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
