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.
