Summary

"Lucinda Bassett suffered from acute anxiety disorder from adolescence on. Shortly after meeting her husband in 1981, she became a full-blown agoraphobic. Using her own healing process as a frame, and drawing on thousands of case histories, she developed the internationally acclaimed "Attacking Anxiety" program - a combination of techniques and skills that helps people suffering from anxiety and panic attacks to overcome their fears and regain their independence."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Revealing her own struggles with anxiety and agoraphobia, which she calls ``avoidance behaviors,'' Bassett describes and analyzes the many degrees and forms of anxiety, discomfort and stress that often characterize contemporary living for both adults and children. A popular talk-show guest, Bassett enacts her sense of mission in these pages with elan. $100,000 ad/ promo; author tour. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


Library Journal Review

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. (c) Copyright 2010.
