Gr 7 Up--In the first section, Lee identifies the different forms of anxiety and panic and explains the human body's physiological response to both. She also defines and clarifies the differences between simple and social phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and ordinary anxiety. The author then examines the biological and emotional causes of anxiety, including stress, trauma, fear, and rigid parenting. This section also discusses the physical consequences of anxiety such as ulcers, sleep disorders, and increased risk of other illnesses. The next part explores the treatment of everyday anxiety and provides practical advice on stress management. The final section outlines treatment options for more severe disorders. This book is readable and well organized; its clear style, realistic examples, and practical advice guarantee its usefulness for both self-help and reports. It moves beyond Michael Maloney and Rachel Kranz's Straight Talk About Anxiety and Depression (Facts on File, 1991) to make an important and clear distinction between common, everyday anxiety and more serious disorders.
