I didn't read this from cover to cover, as I've read other books like it before. My main interest was in seeing how solid the scientific basis of this is -- one of the authors has a PhD, but I could have a PhD in literature, which would by no means qualify me to speak on neuroscience -- and how helpful I thought it might be for other people who end up in the same position I've been in. The good news is, from my knowledge of science and my intimate knowledge of anxiety disorders, there's a lot here that's useful. It doesn't just focus on targeting the conscious part of anxiety generated by the cortex -- which people often try to target on its own, with CBT -- but also acknowledges the contribution of the amygdala.

Generally, it seems a sympathetic and credible book that someone with curiosity and determination could work through to help cope with anxiety, whether it's a full blown disorder or just something that crops up more often than you'd like. It's not an exhaustive reference book of information mentioning every single disorder, every single type of medication, but it is somewhere to start. And it quite rightly encourages the reader to get the help of medical professionals, and it doesn't dismiss the uses of medication. ( )
