"This helpful little book, used with persistence and determination, can get you from where you are to where you want to be. For someone who does not have access to professional help, it is a way to provide oneself with up-to-date treatment in one's own home. Or, if you live in a town where you have access to cognitive behavioral therapists, or even traditional therapists, you could take this book in with you and ask that the therapist go through the chapters with you and use the techniques in the book to do the cognitive behavioral work you need to do in order to recover.
Every form you need is included, as well as a number of exercises. The book is easily read and clearly understandable. Of all the workbooks and anxiety books on the market, this one impresses me as one that is very basic and yet manages to be state of the art self treatment."

"Babior and Goldman have written a book that is quite valuable for the very many patients who ask the treating physician for guidance in contributing to their own treatment. The book has no jargon, advances no theoretical claims, avoids the usual disparaging remarks about medical treatments, and makes no unrealistic promises. This book will certainly help the very many patients who want to take an active role in their own treatment."

"Most patients with anxiety disorders are treated by primary care physicians, not psychotherapists. At last here is an excellent book we can recommend to reinforce therapy and help patients help themselves."

"Thank you for writing such a terrific book.
I'm calling from Orly Airport in France to let you know that I've landed successfully by facing my fear. Flying has been a real source of anxiety for years. I've tried to use a number of materials and therapies before. Your book was the first with real common sense and also a disciplined yet nurturing approach to anxiety and overcoming the fear."
