Anxiety is the most common mental disorder in the United States, with an estimated 40 million adult sufferers. The anti-anxiety drug Xanax is the nation s most-prescribed drug. But drugging anxious Americans is not a solution to the problem of anxiety. Taking Control of Anxiety shows that there are many other proven ways to treat anxiety. This is a self-help book in the best sense of the term conversational in tone, supportive, and filled with simple tips and suggestions that can help people reduce their own anxieties.
Moore provides the public with a comprehensive, useful, and approachable set of skills for the management of anxiety. Readers who implement even just a few of the strategies will likely find themselves leading not only a less worrying, but a happier and more fulfilling life. --PsycCRITIQUES
