From the Publisher:

"Robert Gerzon provides genuine insights into the powers we all possess to transform our lives and embrace the boundless opportunities for positive change."
--Deepak Chopra, M.D., author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

"In warm and inspiring prose, Gerzon offers understanding, practical help, and emotional support for all those who endure the fear and the relentless strains of modern life."
--John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

"Our anxious age desperately needs the lesson of this book."
--Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Prayer Is Good Medicine

From the Back Cover:

"A wonderful first book... This excellent book, similar in style to M. Scott Peck's A Road Less Traveled, is highly recommended."
Library Journal

"An excellent resource, containing much wisdom to help guide us toward inner peace."
Bernie S. Siegel, M.D. Author, Love, Medicine and Miracles

"Finally a book to address the long ignored gifts of our nation's number one mental health issue: anxiety. Gerzon invites us to embrace the multifaceted nature of anxiety, to become students of its edges and dark sides. You will be surprised at what you will discover within these pages. We all suffer the slings and arrows of anxiety. The good news is, it's worth it!" R. Reid Wilson, Ph.D. Author, Don't Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks

"We learned that anxiety is something to avoid, cover over, or fix with drugs, exercise or relaxation techniques. But we are now discovering that the very thing that we thought would kill us may in fact be the only thing that can save us. In his thoughtful and provocative book, Finding Serenity in the Age of Anxiety, Robert Gerzon shows us how to transform what once seemed unmanageable and unavoidable into our greatest hope for health and personal fulfillment. I recommend this book to all who are seeking a healthier and larger life."
Elliott S. Dacher, M.D. Author, Whole Healing and Intentional Healing

"Despite the array of effective psychotherapies and pharmacotherapies for anxiety disorders, persistent distress is more the rule than the exception. Robert Gerzon's inspiring book offers a new understanding of anxiety as a stimulus for growth and an opportunity to achieve wisdom."
Jerrold F. Rosenbaum, M.D. Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School Director of Outpatient Psychiatry Program and Chief of Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital

"A bold and innovative approach to the age-old problem of anxiety. The concept of Sacred Anxiety is a breakthrough in understanding the existential and spiritual dimensions of anxiety. Robert Gerzon presents his profound and powerful message in a friendly and highly-readable style."
Marjorie Hatch, Ph.D. Department of Psychology, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX

"The title of the book, Finding Serenity in the Age of Anxiety, is a prayer in itself. Drawing upon many faiths, using case studies and speaking from his own life experience, Robert Gerzon gives the big subject of anxiety some much-needed focus. I'm grateful to him for this inspiring book."
Reverend Gary E. Smith Senior Minister, First Parish in Concord, MA

"In this fascinating and provocative book, Robert Gerzon shows us how to perform a most remarkable alchemy: Transforming even our deepest anxiety into serenity."
Janet Miller Wiseman, LICSW Author, Mediation Therapy

"Gerzon's inspired book reveals the secret of transformation: how to turn emotional obstacles into stepping stones. In these pages you'll learn that your anxiety may just be the cry of transcendence within your own psyche -- that 'divine discontent' that compels us to continually move toward the realization of our highest ideals. This is a profoundly wise and timely work."
Jacquelyn Small Author, Transformers, Awakening in Time, Rising to the Call
