I wish I could meet with this girl, she wrote an amazing book. It's the first book that says almost exactly how I feel and I can relate to it. All the other books I have read are too scientific. I believe in this book and I feel that this book will help me recover from my panic disorder. It's just soo nice to have someone out there that went through the same thing I went through and talks on my level. I only wish I could talk to her in person, I would ask more questions. Get this book, it is so worth it.

I've been suffering from panic attacks off and on for more than 10 years and feeling very isolated since family and friends don't know what it feels like. This book hit home and finally, I felt like I wasn't alone. I know many people suffer from panic attacks, but most of them do not write books about it. The books about panic attacks are usually written by psychologist or doctors who have NEVER had a panic attack so it's hard to trust in someone who hasn't been there. I have this book on my Kindle and go back to it often for some encouragement and support. After reading this book, I felt like I could face my fears and using the techniques really does help. I also wish i could speak/email this author to say thank you for being brave and writing this book. This is a great book for people who are having a difficult time facing their fears.

This is a good book written by a layperson who has walked the walk experiencing several panic attacks a day for two years. If this isn't proof that panic attacks won't kill you or drive you completely crazy, I don't know what is.

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.

aside from some typos (don't know why they don't fix that, and I'm no grammar Nazi, it's just irritating for those that might not know what someone is trying to say) the author's story about the emotions she went trough and the fears she developed after having her first panic episode. Most of the things she mentions I have gone through, from fear of death (although it is still there and like she stated, that is everyone's fear whether it is small or huge) to swallowing pills and choking like mine is. When I fist started reading the book, she talked about "how special you are and blah blah blah, and I wasn't having any of it thinking that she's trying to lure me into the god stuff, until she went to the stuff that I could related to, from the moments of feeling not real, to doubting stuff and everything you've ever believed in. I do in fact recommend you get this book because it will help you realize that you're not alone in Panic and the experiences that one goes through- the one that makes you feel like you're from Mars. it has been very helpful and I'm going to give you another tip: there's a book called "hope and help for your nerves" by Claire Weekes( best book I've ever read on panic and anxiety), and she explains most symptoms and "solutions" similar to the author in "What if?...."

This little book is packed with useful and inspiring information.
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
