I have read many books and seen many therapist over the last 8 years, and this book proves to place the reader in an active role in overcoming their anxiety. Not that other books were not helpful, but this one made the other books about anxiety all come together to reinforce what I was doing. The best advice is to have someone help you to be accountable and do what the book says because only practice will help you change.

I'm a long time anxiety/panic sufferer. I've been working through this book with my therapist. Its changing my life. I'm almost finished with it, but will be going back through and rereading and doing the exercises until I'm 100% past this stuff. I've suffered from severe panic episodes before and had a harder time because I didn't have such useful information. Thank you so very much Dr. Zuercher-White for writing this. I can sleep and function again!

This book was recommended to me by my psychologist and it did a really great job helping me with my anxiety. It's in an easy to read workbook style format so it doesn't feel like you're reading a long novel front-to-back. The best part for me was the part that helps you stop reinforcing negative thoughts. I would typically take a small worry and magnify it by thinking negative thoughts or " what if " scenarios. The book teaches you how to stop it that so small troubles don't turn into full blown panic attacks. The book also goes into several other areas like deep breathing techniques, why your body creates panic, medications, and several other things.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy works if you will, doing the in vivo exposures of the things you've been avoiding. I have had the pleasure of being treated personally by the author in a group session and everything I was willing to work on is no longer a problem. I still have a ways to go but it's just my own procrastination.
I have never taken any medication and I strongly advise against developing an addiction on top of an avoidance. I recommend finding a qualified cognitive-behavioral therapist (they do exist, try adaa.org) and doing your homework. I think group sessions (3-5 people) are actually much better than individual ones, because getting over embarassment of the condition is essential to its resolution. I was fortunate to have a wonderful group.

I have been plagued with panic attacks for 5 years. Despite medication and therapy, the anxiety of having another panic attack remains with me 24/7.
This book was recommended to me by my therapist, and it is truly excellent. Do not plan to breeze through it in a few evenings, though. It has questions to answer, things to ponder, and requires more involvement than "quick fix" books that you've probably already tried. You must truly commit to going through the book and doing the exercises - and making that commitment can be difficult.
