Start your review of Anxiety, Phobias, and Panic Write a review Shelves: psychology I read this several years ago when I was having panic attacks. This book is very practical, and has useful exercises to practice and use when your anxiety is slipping into panic mode. Peurifoy also addresses anxiety about panic and suggests ways to view your anxiety and panic attacks that are realistic and that also disarm their power.
Because of the tools in this book, I was able to talk myself through and out of many panic attacks, and eventually ceased having them altogether. This book was recommended to me by a doctor.
