"As the medical director of The Ross Center, with three offices treating thousands of people with anxiety, I am so pleased to have a unique new resource for patients that emphasizes the positive power of our anxiety response and very clearly shows how it can be harnessed and used to our benefit. The explanation of the neurobiology behind anxiety, the case vignettes offered, and the tool kit provided are all clearly laid out such that the anxiety is understood, hope is instilled, and a change in perspective is possible. The reader is provided a clear path to taking back control of anxiety and seeing it as an incredibly useful tool to help them along the path toward self-fulfillment. Thank you, Alicia, for this thoughtful and thought provoking new take on anxiety!" - Beth Salcedo, MD, medical director of The Ross Center and President, Anxiety and Depression Association of America
