About the Author

In 1991 Bev Aisbett launched a full-time freelance career in cartooning and illustration. Around this time, Bev experienced an ordeal commonly known as anxiety disorder. Out of this experience she developed the character "IT" which led to the successful publication of Living With IT, Living IT Up and Letting IT Go. Bev has also published Get Real, dealing with body image and eating disorders and in 2000 the successful Taming the Black Dog: A guide to depression.

I do not have PD but I do suffer panick attacks...and only panick attack sufferers can understand how 'IT' feels like. This is a MUST BUY!!!...my school lent this book to me...and after reading it...I had to own one.
This book is very easy(light, relaxing)to read, it uses humour to help you understand your situation...eg: it compares the anxiety to a monster called 'IT'..... with a good uses of humour and simple cartoons...I understood my situation...when I was reading it...it felt as if the book was a mirror...i felt understood and felt like I was part of the book because 'the book understood me so much'...have you ever wished that your loved ones can read your mind?...th book does that... after reading the book...I had to get one for myself to keep...but I went to many book stores and they were all sold out...and i had to wait 2 weeks...which i couldn't...so i had to try getting it from the net(i never shopped from the net before) this book provides understanding, a lot of help, a break from stress(humour) and is just wonderful ^_^
you may feel that you are surely alone...but I can assure that you are definately not alone

Anyone living with anxiety/panic attacks knows how terrifying life can become. I have read many books on panic and to tell you the truth some of them have scared me so much, I've almost had a panic attack! This book is very easy to read and it's fun, the cartoon characters are fantastic. Bev Aisbett definitely knows what she is talking about, she's been there. This book gives you an understanding of panic and steps to be free from "IT", quite frankly it covers everything. The authors lighthearted approach to something that is very serious is soothing to the reader. I would recommend this book to anyone who suffers with panic and wants to reclaim their life, it would be the first step towards recovery.

I am a therapist and have recently recommended this book to numerous patients. One older client had had anxiety for 50 years, and has now reduced her medication to virtually zero and keeps the book around in case she needs to refer to it. All my clients who have anxiety or Panic attacks have found it really helpful.

Simple to understand, clear, instructive and funny. The book is very quick to read, with little text, lots of amusing cartoons and very straightforward instructions about how to help yourself to get relief from panic attacks.

My GP lent me a copy of this book 11 years ago as I was suffering from prolonged and severe panic attacks. The book helped me recover myself back to sanity and I have lent my own copy to 2 other mothers who have in turn thanked me profusely. One, a teacher said she had lent it to 3 friends who had all bought their own copies as they found them so useful. Another friend, who was seeing a psychiatrist, could not thank me enough for the loan of the book and how much it had eased her suffering.
This not being enough of a recommendation, I found myself 2 weeks before Christmas with another lady who had recently suffered a bereavement, telling me she was suffering from panic attacks, I lent her my copy with my usual proviso.... 'you may not find it useful but I did'. The next day she was beaming, saying how wonderful it was, it was exactly what she needed.....

So I would say this book is like a saviour of relief to some of us, so thank you Bev Aisbett.

On a personal, final note, I have found that the simple effective techniques outlined in this book have stood me in good stead for all types of fears and anxiety, not just panic attacks. So for me this book did change my life for the better and continues to impact it positively now.
