Library Journal
About a million people a month will exhibit symptoms of panic disorder, according to social worker Weinstock and freelance medical writer Gilman, quoting statistics from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). The authors methodically present four detailed case studies of women who suffer from panic disorder and other related physical and psychological problems. Each psychotherapeutic modality or medication used in treatment receives an in-depth discussion that remains entirely accessible and understandable to the educated lay reader.

Bibliographic references represent current studies in mainstream medical journals, and a substantial guide to NIMH-supported research programs and professional and self-help organizations is included. Despite the emphasis on women, men who suffer from panic disorder will also find valuable advice here.

After weeks of six or seven panic attacks a day, I flipped and stayed at home under the covers for 5 days. After a few days my fiance came home with this book. I started reading it a couldn't put it down. It put many things in perspective and gave wonderful advice. Though I am a lot better now, I am still not out of the woods. I pick up this book whenever I need some reassurance. I recommend this to every woman who suffers from panic attacks
