The Anxious Traveler: How to Overcome Your Fear to Travel the World by Rita Anya Nara

Here's the comprehensive travel guidebook and reference for the armchair traveler who is ready to take that leap to the plane seat - and leave their fears in the overhead compartment. The Anxious Traveler lays out dozens of strategies, tips, and resources to empower you to travel both domestically and internationally. It's essential reading for not only the inexperienced tourist, but business and family travelers as well.

You'll gain the confidence to navigate an unfamiliar environment, interact with strangers, and enjoy a memorable trip even if you suffer from chronic anxiety. The book contains numerous scenarios, photos, and exercises to help you work through some of the more challenging aspects of confronting your fears and planning a trip.

Written by a world traveler and anxiety sufferer, for other anxiety sufferers, The Anxious Traveler doesn't spend chapters dwelling on the author's personal journey, or how and why people develop anxiety - it's a practical reference to help you fulfill your travel goals and dreams, wherever they may take you.

I don't suffer from an anxiety disorder per se but I found this book to be very helpful. I have to travel a lot for work and a usually more worried about getting somewhere than the actual meeting with the consultant. We're used to coping well in a routine, but what happens when we're shaken out of the routine? Rita provides a lot of valuable information on this. Travel has become synonymous for me with just another work assignment but after reading this I think I could actually travel for fun again. Recommended.

Saw this featured on ABC News Online and thought I'd take a look. This is a true guidebook; not a memoir. Has some wonderful recommendations and page after page of tips -- the kind of thing you can refer to before or during a trip. So many travel books are just common sense and/or pictures these days -- this is definitely a cut above. Highly recommended.

Nice book – good common sense suggestions – very thorough.  I’m trying to get back into traveling after a bad, ‘hairraising’ experience with a hotel and a bathtub in a non-English speaking country (don’t ask!).   It’s true what they say ‘It’s not what happens to you, but what you do about it.’  This book is a great first step for ‘worry-warts’ who haven’t traveled or want to travel again.  The author covers all the topics potential travelers are interested in, plus ones I wouldn’t have thought of.   Really insightful book.Sonny
