"Wolfe and Maser's "Treatment of Panic Disorder: A Consensus Development Conference" provides a particularly succinct and thoughtful overview of this rapidly developing area. It provides, in a single volume, the latest research and thinking by some of the leading investigators in the field with respect to the diagnosis, etiology, course, prognosis, and treatment of the panic disorders. On the whole, the text provides one of the most valuable compilations of fact and theory that I have seen. I think it is must reading for anyone interested in the nature and treatment of the panic disorders and a model for organizing current knowledge that should be applied to other types of problems."-- "Steven D. Hollon, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Vanderbilt University"
