Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6-10

This overview includes chapters on the symptoms and causes of phobias; treatment options, including alternative medicine; and first-person accounts. The writing is fairly interesting and not too clinical. Though there are stylistic differences among the authors, readers will find no jarring effect when they switch chapters. The illustrations are numerous and colorful, and there is enough information for reports. Students may even browse some of the chapters for general interest. A sturdy addition to mental-health sections.-Robin Henry, Griffin Middle School, Frisco, TX
