Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“From her experience successfully treating hundreds of patients, and from her review of the voluminous literature in the area, Dr. Beckfield has distilled the essence of effective treatment into the most readable book on the topic I have seen.”
John Greist, MD, author, Anxiety and Its Treatment, Clinical Director of Psychiatry, University of Washington Medical School

“Of all the clinical self-help books on panic disorder, Master Your Panic And Take Back Your Life is the best. I use the book as required reading for the individual and group therapy I conduct for clients with panic disorder and high anxiety. It is excellent, easily understandable and with self-help exercises that really make a difference. I recommend they read others, but I require this one.”
Tom Parsons, MA, LPC , co-founder: The SHYNESS Institute of Colorado

“The minute I finished reading [this book], I wanted to hop right on a plane and fly out to meet with Dr. Beckfield in person. It is written with unbelievable understanding and compassion. I keep a copy at home and work. It comes in handy for me and also for others who may try to understand their condition... I recommend the book highly to anyone with panic and anxiety. It's a magnificent book.&rdquo
M.L., a reader in Clearwater Beach, FL

“...Especially noteworthy are chapters 2, 3, and 4, helping clients to trace both the lifetime origins as well as the daily antecedents of their panic episodes. I haven't seen this covered so well anywhere else.”
Edmund Bourne, PhD, author, Anxiety, Fears and Phobias

“...best book of its kind.&rdquo
Albert Ellis, PhD, President, Albert Ellis Institute, New York

“I just turned 40 years old... I've been suffering from periodic attacks since I was 24 years old... Right now I feel 100% like my 'old' self... You have helped me&rdquot;
A grateful reader, Memphis, TN

“...Dr. Beckfield clearly understands this exquisitely uncomfortable disorder...”
THE WILSON LIBRARY JOURNAL

“I was quite surprised at the impact the book had on me... This book is just what we need! [It is]... user-friendly, based on sound, research-based techniques, yet also addresses emotional issues such as loss, and unresolved grief or anger (something we find hard to release)... Dr. Beckfield truly understands the agony and struggle that her clients and readers experience... excellent book.”
—From a review in The Mountain Climber

“As a therapist, I am delighted to have learned of a book which I can use with my anxiety and panic disorder patients... as a professor, I look forward to the opportunity to utilize your book as a text, or as recommended reading for some of my courses...”
Janice Kinter, PhD, former Director of Clinical Placement, Psychology, California Graduate Institute

&ldquot;...a valuable resource for people with panic disorder.”

Written in understandable language, the book helped me see the "Why" behind my panic by working through several exercises. Most of the tactics presented to help when panic arises are useful. There is encouragement throughout the book.

It's wonderful and could be very helpful for a variety of people. Was recommended by a fellow MD.

I feel the author is very professional but she immediately gets into exercises to challange panic attacks like intentionally creating one and trying to stop it!! for anyone who has had a panic attack, that is the last thing you want to do!! I didn't feel there were enough help stategies,just possible reasons why a person may have panic disorder.
