I think that I am not the intended audience. I have extreme anxiety and panic, but I have never fallen into the trap of avoidance. I just white-knuckle my way through all sorts of situations. This book solely focuses on overcoming avoidance behavior. As a result, I ended up skimming a lot of it.
It is also extremely repetitive. They convinced me in chapter 1 that most of the strategies people use to “manage” their anxiety don’t work. Then they continued for another 100 pages going over and over this concept.
