"Catherine Pittman, a trained behavioral scientist, brings her deep scientific understanding of fear, anxiety, and learning to the world of personal experiences. Few scientists can make this transition from scientific communication to public communication. Pittman, along with coauthor Elizabeth Karle, does this very well indeed. Readers should not be put off by the early presentations of brain mechanisms, because they are surprisingly readable and informative. Moreover, it is information that provides a foundation for readers who have anxiety challenges to use later as they develop effective coping strategies. Readers should find the clear expositions of the where's, why's, and how's of anxiety and its management to be an anxiety-reducing read." --J. Bruce Overmier, PhD, professor emeritus in the graduate faculties of psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science at the University of Minnesota "This is a unique contribution to a wide array of self-help books for those who suffer with anxiety. The authors explain what we know about the workings of the brain in a fluid style that neither talks down to nor overwhelms the reader. This science becomes the foundation for decreasing bewilderment, fear, and shame. There are straightforward and logical recommendations for modifying patterns of anxiety that originate from, and are maintained by, differing brain circuitry." --Sally Winston PsyD, codirector of the Anxiety and Stress Disorders Institute of Maryland "From fears to phobias and panic, this how-to guide unravels the mysteries of worry, then delivers strategies that will lead you to a resilient life." --Reid Wilson, PhD, author of Don't Panic "Fear, worry, anxiety, panic, and depression block individuals from living fully. This book does an excellent job of unraveling the mysteries of the brain and how it causes anxiety, thus allowing individuals to take control of their symptoms and manage their lives more effectively. I have used the concepts in this book in treating veterans with PTSD and have seen people become much more functional. Highly-recommended reading." --Susan Myers, RN, LCSW, BCD, holistic nurse and board certified diplomate in clinical social work
