Best Ever!

I struggled with panic attacks for 5 years. I was prescribed medications and went to therapy, but still no success. I read this book and have not had 1 panic attack since. I read many articles and books on panic attacks, but this is the only book that helped me overcome them. I know many people who have also suffered from panic attacks and recommended this book every time. I believe this is the best book ever for those suffering panic attacks!

Truly self-help!

Having lived with easily-aroused anxiety for most of my life, I have sought out a variety of supposedly self-help books on this subject. Wilson's book is BY FAR the best I have encountered. There is a balanced content that includes complete current information about the physiology of anxiety and panic attacks, followed by the psychology that often accompanies such attacks, and then step-by-step exercises you can do to help alleviate your symptoms. Armed with both the knowledge of what's happening and the skills to help counter anxiety symptoms, I have been able to make significant strides in staying calm while normally stress-provoking events occur.

This book helped me regain control of my life !!

This is a wonderful book for anyone who wants clear informitave answers of what this disorder is all about. It helped me in many ways learn to deal with my panic disorder. One of my biggest fears was that my life was becoming very restricted by this disorder. I thought I was going to have to take medication for the rest of my life. With this book I was able to get my life back together without medication. There is a section in the book about the connection between premenstrual syndrome and anxiety. I had a great deal of stress in my life and I found myself very anxious during PMS. He shows in this section that diet has a strong impact on reducing symptoms of anxiety and panic. The book teaches how to refocus our thoughts. This was very helpful for me dealing with my panic disorder because in the past I was very quick to scare myself. If there was even a slight feeling of fear I would take that fearful thought and run with it causing myself great anxiety and at times panic attacks. By refocusing my thoughts like this book teaches, helped me to control the unrealistic array of scary thoughts from pouring into my head and replacing them with soothing, comforting and believable words. He speaks of breathing techniques and how they help the sufferer gain control of body symptoms in any given situation, from sitting in a dental chair to being locked in a traffic jam. He teaches by maintaing control of your breathing it sends a message to the brain that all is all is well and there is no need for panic. I would reccomend this book to anyone who wants to put an end to this disableing disorder.
