I has de had anxiety for 40 years and have done a lot of therapy. Therapy only got me so far. Therapists wanted me to do journaling which i hate. The author of this book gives actual techniques, and more than one, so you can do the ones that work for you. I was starting to figure some of these out for myself... but that took 40+ years. Wish i had found this book when i was 20! Give it a try, really try. It isn't easy but i started feeling results soon after i started.

The techniques , when practiced work. This book guides you through he vicious circle during anxiety that leads to panic attack’s and finally to phobias. As I’m writing this I’m actually feeling a panic attack and I’m embracing it and riding it out just to see what happens next. See to it that you read cover to cover and spot check as needed. Definitely Purchased the softcover as well. Thanks Geert V.
This is a awesome book, I put it into practice and I can really see some changes with me going outside, driving the expressway, being stuck in a red light on a busy intersection.... read this book and it will show you step by step on how to get rid of your fears and anxiety or even panic attacks, always put God first and the rest will fall into place God bless!!! ...more
This is the first book on the subject I have read so I can’t compare it to others, but I was impressed by his first hand experience and all the people he has worked with and helped. The explanations and suggestions made intuitive sense, and I can see them being effective (I don’t suffer from anxiety myself).
