Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Filled with hope and wisdom, this unique book combines a compassionate understanding of the inner experience of panic with the latest in modern brain biology."--Robert L. DuPont, M.D., Georgetown University School of Medicine
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Ross, president of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, here eloquently addresses today's ``number one mental health problem''--anxiety disorders--and offers help to the estimated million Americans who suffer from them. A former sufferer of panic attacks and agoraphobia, the author compassionately tells the stories of patients who are inflicted by the five primary types of anxiety disorders--panic disorder, phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia), obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress syndrome, generalized anxiety--and how they triumphed over their crippling fears and went on to lead normal lives. Especially moving is the story of Grace, who didn't leave her house for 30 years but is now involved in many social activities. Also discussed are anxiety disorders in children, research on the latest therapies, and the value of tranquilizers and antidepressants to facilitate, rather than replace, therapy. Ross presents goal setting, daily task sheets, the ``six-point'' system, breathing control, and relaxation and exercise to manage panic and phobias. Final chapters offer advice on handling family, friends and associates affected by the anxiety sufferer's behavior and on overcoming setbacks. A valuable guide for patients and professionals. (May)
Library Journal
Ross, founder of the Anxiety Disorder Association of America, writes a cogent volume regarding anxiety disorders and phobias. Among these are more publicized phobias, such as agoraphobia and post-traumatic stress disorder, which physicians may not recognize. After several short case studies of people with a variety of conditions, Ross discusses recovery solutions using drug and cognitive behavioral therapy. She also borrows a six-point therapy from Dr. Manuel Zane, a pioneer in the treatment of anxiety disorders. After conquering a fear of heights herself, Ross climbs on elevators with patients or meets them in their homes. One success story concerns a woman who had not left her home in 30 years. A complementary workbook is Reneau Z. Peurifoy's Anxiety, Phobias and Panic (Life Skills, 1992). Great for public and medical patient libraries.-- Lisa Wise, Univ. of Southern Colorado, Pueblo

    She's been there.

    One of the things I liked most about this book is Ross's experience. She suffered from an anxiety disorder and tried to get help. She went from doctor to doctor and she was told it was all in her head. Even in the last fifteen years, a tremendous amount of research has been conducted on anxiety disorders, and Ross knows all about it. She is probably the top authority on anxiety disorders; not only what help is available, but what you can do to help yourself. In the back of the book, you'll find contact information and resources for therapists and other services, and throughout the book she gives you practical self-help tools you can use right away. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I can tell you without any hesitation that Ross's book is self-help at its finest. I highly recommend this book to you.
