Rinehart writes in a simple, comfortable way--no psychobabble here--just honest and sincere writing about the attacks she endured and how she was able to overcome them, giving the reader advice on learning to overcome panic attacks basically by changing one's thought processes and suggestions on how to cope with occasional relapses.
The reader might find her to be a bit repetitive. Another criticism would be that she insists on panic attack sufferers getting to the bottom of their fears. For instance, she mentioned that sometimes victims of panic attacks will try to get busy with tasks in order to re-focus their attention and get over the attack. She writes that they can succeed but this isn't helping to get to the bottom of what they fear. My contention is that panic attacks can come, not only when we have a specific fear, but when we are just plain over-tired or stressed, often waking after an hour or two of sleep with a full-blown attack. I have found that focusing one's attention on a small task is very beneficial and soon I am back to sleep and feeling fine the next day.
So I feel that she doesn't take into consideration that there are many varieties of attacks and many ways of coping. Also, I take issue with her assumption that we can get to the bottom of our fears and cast them out. Maybe this is true for her and for certain people. But I think that fears can come and go, and the best we can do is get a measure of control--not necessarily eliminate them forever.Read more ›
It is written in a "no nonsense" style and gets right to the point.
What you will discover, is that your are giving yourself these attacks
for reasons you may not yet have discovered. I got a lot out of this
little gem & I have red all the books. Highly recomended if you truly
aim to get your life back

I think I went into reading this book expecting a lot more. It was great reading about a fellow anxiety sufferer, however, it wasn't revolutionary for me. Read morePublished 18 months ago by GiantsFan18
