I always felt like I had a bit of an anxiety issue, so I wanted to learn a bit more.

I ended up skimming parts of the book because I started feeling dizzy and nauseous and nervous.

But there was a lot of good advice.

Awesome primer for those first learning to handle anxiety. The writing style is friendly, encouraging and simple to understand. Covers topics from relaxation techniques to psychotherapy and medication. Though written for teens, I would not hesitate in recommending it to adults as well.
