In my opinion, "Panic Attacks Workbook" is the best self-help book for overcoming panic - and I have read nearly all of them. The author, Dr. David Carbonell, is one of the leading experts in the field of anxiety disorders. With clarity, compassion and humor, he presents the most effective approaches to overcoming panic. Reading this book is like having several sessions with a caring, expert therapist. If you are facing the challenge of panic attacks, this book is the place to start.

In 1998, after years of struggle, I overcame panic disorder & agoraphobia. Since 2001, I have been directing a popular website that provides resources for people recovering from these conditions. Among all the self-help books, my #1 recommendation is "Panic Attacks Workbook."

This book has been the most practical and useful one on the market. It's like having a real person walk you through, step by step, not a bunch of "psychobabble". It respectfully addresses every aspect of panic you have experienced. Advice includes reasons why you might have this "problem" and how to cope, realistically. If you feel you are beyond hope, don't believe it, buy this book, read it, read it again, do the "homework" (at your own pace) and in time (you choose how soon) you will begin to see results--it may take a while, so be patient...if you don't have patience, get some! :) However long you have "suffered" there is hope. And whatever you do, DO NOT skip the part about BREATHING. Don't think you've heard it all. I especially liked all the anecdotes of Dr. Carbonell's: if you like a little humor thrown in (trust me, it helps!) with some real-life scenarios, this is the book for you. Written in everyday language, and I do not mean "dumbed down" this book has been incredibly useful. And a bargain!

I've dealt with anxiety and panic attacks for the last 11 years! I had an especially hard time with feeling "trapped" in places, such as a traffic jam, elevators, and couldn't even fathom the idea of going on an airplane! I was so dissapointed everytime friends or family would take a trip and invite me. I would always make up excuses as to why I just could not go, knowing all the while that I was just too scared of having a panic attack. I have read tons of books, been to psychotherapy, and even used other panic attack programs and all was in vain. Finally, I came across this book and it has changed my life!! I flew for the first time in 10 years two weeks ago. I had the book in my lap the whole time, and I was fine! I couldn't believe it. I had the skills to deal with my panic attack on the flight out, and on the flight back, I didn't need to open the book at all. It was an amazing accomplishment for me, and I thank Dr. Carbonell for restoring my sense of freedom.

When I first got this book I read it and then put it on my shelf for a few months. I understood what he meant about not running from the fear but I was just SO scared. I really wanted to not run or protect myself from the anxiety but I felt like I couldn't handle it. So months after I got the book, my anxiety had been getting worse and i decided to just go for it and follow his book to the letter. I had many anxieties such as food contamination anxiety, agoraphobia, fear of going crazy, fear of losing control, feeling unreal and on and on. Once I made the plan for myself (he shows you how to do this in the book) and started doing what I needed to do, I started getting better. That first time I took the plunge and faced the fear without "protecting" myself, I was TERRIFIED. I wanted to give up but I didn't. I got a huge confidence boost after that. The ball got rolling quickly after that and I actually got loads better each and every time I faced me fears. It's been 8 months since I've last panicked. I was a "normal" person for 16 years, then an anxious wreck with no friends or social life for 6 years and now I'm recovered. I worried that I'd be afraid of becoming anxious again but I am not scared at all. I held off on writing this review and i'm glad I did. Now I know for a fact this book works. Anxiety is no joke and I've wasted money and been disappointed by Panic Away and other programs. Thank you dr. Carbonell. I have no idea where I would be if I had never gotten your book and then followed through with it. I lost 6 years of my life to anxiety but now I'm happier than ever. Thank god for this book!

I decided to rewrite my review, partly because my view on panic attacks have changed (for the better) as well as my opinion of this book. My last review focused more on my story, rather than the book, and as a result, I feel as if I should tell you more about the book, followed by how it has helped me change my life.

This book is based upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which clinical studies have shown to be one of the most effective treatments for almost all behavioral problems. Panic attacks, as the book will show you, are the result of behaviors, not chemical imbalances. You learn, whether purposely or not, see certain symptoms as dangerous, focus on them, and cause them to seem to get worse. Thats a panic cycle. Dr. Carbonell intends for you to read the book from start to finish, not skipping over any chapters. To that extent, this book is all you need to get over a panic attack or disorder, as long as you read it and follow it 100%.

Now, if you are having panic attacks constantly, you are probably skeptical, and you should be. However, I would caution against this skepticism and purchase the book. I had, and notice I say had, a severe panic disorder, with panic attacks that lasted for hours, and occurred multiple times a day. This book helped me learn what it was, what I was doing to cause it, and how I can calm down and stop judging my bodies various physical signals. Again, notice how I didn't say it help me fight back, or end panic. Anxiety is natural and necessary, and learning to embrace your emotions is going to help you.

This book requires you to work at it. For example, even after I read it, I still had attacks, but they lessened and occurred less often.
