There are lots of books written by medical experts about this modern-day condition. There aren’t, however, many books written by people who have actually suffered from anxiety – and recovered. People who really know what it feels like to be haunted by strange and terrifying thoughts and feelings, day after day.

The author provides the reader with a step-by-step guide to recovery, in a practical and easy-to-follow way.
