I received this book for free through the Empowerment Nation Reviewer's Club.

I would rate this book a 3 out of 5 because it is a great resource book, but not completely what I was hoping for or expected. I was hoping for more of a workbook with exercises and assessments to evaluate progress.

The elements that are most helpful for me include:

* The questionnaires to rate present anxiety.
* The list of many famous and productive people with anxiety issues. The most intriguing person on the list was Edgar Allen Poe. For me, he is a great example of how anxiety can fuel creative endeavors. Also, if catastrophic thinking can lead to great creativity, then I should be the next Picasso and/or Eric Clapton. What wasn't made clear was how to allow this creative energy to be fostered from high anxiety. This is where a workbook would have been most helpful.
* Also, the characterization and distinction among generalized anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, and fear was quite helpful.
* The link between low self-esteem and high anxiety seems logical, but it is something I never considered. I just saw my anxiety as part of a high-strung personality!
* With my scientific background, it was interesting to see a research study evaluating how carbon dioxide and pH in the body can be affected by fear. The fact that current medications don't address this issue is also interesting.
* While reading this book, I encountered many crazy situations. But after reading this book, I was actually able to curb my catastrophic thinking. I have never been able to do this before. I think the "power of suggestion" was prevalent here because the mere idea presented by the book that I can control my anxiety, helped me to utilize the techniques presented better.

This book was pretty good. Although all the strategies were right on, there was nothing really new, and the truth is, if you're so stressed out, you can't really implement most of them anyway. However, it's well-laid-out and thoughtful. I just wish these types of authors would realize that usually, by the time you're reading the book, you're not in a place to get right to it. It would be great if there was a lead-in part, where it shows you how to get from "completely out of your mind" to "Okay, I can actually try some of this."

Anyway, good pointers, easy to understand, if not a tad bit repetitive.

All of us feel anxiety from time to time. Between work deadlines, family illnesses, parenting, and driving in bad weather, it is ingrained in us to feel fearful, anxious, and panic often, if not on a daily basis. For some people though, anxiety and panic cripple their very existence. In this new book, the reader can learn practical and effective ways to deal with this condition.

The author first explains what anxiety and panic are and then offers quizzes to help the reader determine how bad their anxiety is. Using personal experience and nonjudgmental language, the author explains how and why anxiety is important (“fight or flight”), but not necessary, usually, in everyday life. For example, it is important to feel anxious in a life or death situation where you may have to fight for survival, but typically, there is nothing dangerous about riding an elevator. Once the reader understands the origins of the “fight or flight” response, the author goes on to explain ways in which to overcome anxiety in everyday life.

Simple techniques such as proper breathing, visualization, journaling and meditation are described in step-by-step fashion and practice exercises are included. I found the journaling portion to be especially helpful, especially dream journaling, since I tend to have very vivid dreams. Once a person learns the roots of their anxiety and can take control of their body and breathing, they will soon find that they can control their reactions to the situation.

The author also offers advice on choosing a psychotherapist, drug therapy and hypnotherapy. I found this book to be easy to read, understandable and extremely helpful.

This book allowed me to see that even though I feel stressed at times, my level of anxiety and stress is typical. it has many different questionnaires to answer to help you see where your level of anxiety is. then the book goes into detail about ways to cope and overcome those anxiety. I would highly recommend this book if you are looking for ways to work through your stress and anxiety.

I had no idea that 40 million people suffer from anxiety. I am one of those people who suffer from anxiety.. whether it is presenting in front of people, test anxiety, or just worrying in general. If you think about it, everybody has some kind of anxiety. The 40 mill. People just have it the worst. This book has helped me see the brighter side of my anxiety. Everything is possible all you got to do is build yourself up with positive things. That is what i do, helps me do tasks throughout my day.
