Book Description

May 9, 2006

For anyone who is worried sick and sick of worrying, the bestselling author of Feeling Good will show readers the proven, drug-free way to put worry, panic, and fear to rest.

Are you plagued by fears, phobias, or panic attacks? Do you worry about your job, your family, work, your health, or relationships? Do you suffer from crippling shyness, obsessive doubts, or feelings of insecurity? What you may not realize is that these fears are almost never based on reality. Anxiety is one of the world's oldest cons. When you're anxious, you're telling yourself things that aren't true.

Now imagine what it be like to live a life that's free of worries and self-doubt; to go to sleep at night feeling peaceful and relaxed; to overcome your shyness and have fun with other people; to give dynamic presentations without worrying yourself sick ahead of time; to enjoy greater creativity, productivity and self-confidence.

In When Panic Attacks, Dr. Burns takes you by the hand and shows you how to overcome every conceivable kind of anxiety. In fact, you will learn how to use simple, effective techniques, and the moment you put the lie to the distorted thoughts that plague you, your fears will immediately disappear. Dr. Burns also shares the latest research on the drugs commonly prescribed for anxiety and depression and explains why they sometimes do more harm than good.

When Panic Attacks is an indispensable handbook for anyone who's worried sick and sick of worrying.

From AudioFile

This audiobook is a gem--brief, practical, straight to the point. Sam Freed embodies the friendly voice of Dr. Burns, who guides listeners through an easy-to-implement series of exercises that ease and relieve everything from obsessive fear to phobias and everyday anxieties. As you listen to Freed describe actual cases--some truly bizarre--and how Dr. Burns helped those who suffered from them, hope for defeating your own anxieties will gradually increase. After all, if someone with sweat stain phobia or with an uncontrollable impulse to shout "Dark! Dark!" at odd moments can be cured, so can you. Highly recommended to anyone dealing with stress, anxiety, or issues of self-esteem. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

2.0 out of 5 stars It's Just Okay....... January 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD set received great reviews, which led me to purchase it----but I discovered it mainly contains peoples' "stories" and basic information. I have been there and done that; I'm not a panic disorder "newbie", I know I'm not alone, I know the symptoms, etc. If you want more involved information regarding actual TREATMENTS, they advise you to purchase the book. The problem is, some people are wired to learn by LISTENING rather than having to sit down with a book and I feel short-changed.

"When Panic Attacks" is mainly a collection of case studies that demonstrate different ways to identify and conquer various sources of anxiety. I have never read David Burns's book "Feeling Good," which is mentioned several times in this 3-CD set, but from reading other reviews, some case studies and ideas from that book may be repeated here.

Disc 1 discusses the cognitive model for combating anxiety. In this model it is explained that you feel the way you think, that anxiety stems from distorted, illogical thoughts, and when you change the way you think, you can change the way you feel. One technique used in the case studies, is to keep asking one's self that, if a certain anxiety-provoking event occurs, what would happen? The point in this technique is to get to the source of the anxiety. Another technique used is the exposure model where one submerges one's self in the activity or experience that causes anxiety.

I found it humorous how so many of the case studies involved the higher echelon of society (I guess people who could afford therapy). A highly-successful attorney suffers from constant worry he might eventually lose a case. A biology teacher and 5-time Teacher of the Year is afraid of becoming a father, especially after attacking a burrito (yes, you read that right). Then there is a hunk who can't get a date because he is self-conscious about his body odor. On disc 2, we hear about a top student pilot who is afraid his friends will look down on him if he doesn't ace his exams. There is the woman who once suffered from panic attacks who ends up writing a novel. Even David Burns had to overcome his fear of blood when he was a medical student.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beat anxiety, easy to read January 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
David Burns, psychiatrist and author of best selling book "Feeling Good," once again writes a book that is easy to understand, and fascinating to read. This can help you with anxiety. The CD is a summary of the book. Burns addresses many causes of anxiety, and shows ways of reducing them, using Cognitive Therapy. If you don't like to read, but have anxiety, try the CD, and you might even decide to read the book.

Not always we have the time to sit down and start working on a new project. Not always we can concentrate good enough to have food for thought right out of the box. This CD of the well known Dr. David Burns does a good job to introduce to some ideas how to deal with cognitive therapy and to the point, to help you get the way of thinking in many situations where our mind thinks wrong and have missleading atitudes.

Well read, good enough examples/stories of how CBT and way of thinking, and some rules of this kind of (well thought out) therapy works.

I dont think that from this CD package (of 3) you can know every situation how to deal with, but enough good to get you gasoline until getting to the gas station.

By listening to it a few times in my driving time I picked up alot of clues.. and from there I picked up a book on CBT ..only after I listened to the CDs of this package I was able to read the book more fluently knowing many of the concepts. This CD tells you interesting enough situatons in the form of (real?) stories to get your attention into the learning curve easily.
