Read more From Library Journal Bassett, executive director and founder of the Midwest Center for Stress and Anxiety, is perhaps best known for her successful infomercial, 'Attacking Anxiety.' Prior to this, she suffered from a serious anxiety disorder. Not only did she ultimately overcome that disability but she also found an extraordinary talent for helping others, which shines through in her first book. Her experiences will strike a chord in anyone who has problems with anxiety. Beyond that, her common-sense approach, which appears to use the same principles as cognitive therapy, conveys reassurance and hope. This extraordinary work reaches out to its readers and is bound to be helpful. In a class by itself, this is highly recommended for all public libraries.January Adams, ODSI Research Lib., Raritan, N.J.Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
