Publisher's Summary

Do you find yourself not being able to enjoy the great outdoors because you feel like the world's going to eat you? Do you feel extremely panicked at the sight of the tiniest of spiders? Do you ever get the feeling that you are going to die while riding the elevator?
If you have ever felt any of these things, or anything similar, then you probably suffer from anxiety-induced phobias. Fears are a normal part of life, but there is a point where a simple fear turns into a debilitating phobia. These phobias can interfere with your everyday life to the point where you are afraid to leave the house.
A phobia is characterized by an extreme fear of something which doesn't actually pose a real threat to the person. Phobias are a group of anxiety symptoms that are triggered by certain situations or objects. Some common phobias are needles, snakes, insects, flying, highway driving, heights, and close places. But people can have a phobia of literally anything. Typically, a phobia is developed during childhood, but you can still develop them as an adult.
Chances are, if you have a phobia, you know that it's irrational, yet you can't do anything to control how you feel. Just the thought of your fear can raise feelings of anxiousness. Then, when you experience your fear, you are automatically overwhelmed with terror.
This book is here to help guide you so that you can repair these fears and be able to live your best life possible. As a rule of thumb, you should always try self-help. The more you can do for yourself, the more you will feel like you are in control of your life. This will help you out in the long run. If your phobias are so bad that they cause you to have panic attacks and you suffer from extreme anxiety, then you will probably want to have professional assistance as well.

very helpful book

I just bought this book and only read the first chapter but I love it so much and already learned a lot! When I shared it with my friends, a few of them had already been recommended it by their therapists. I'm very excited to finish it!

great book

Bought this book for some personal research I'm doing about Anxiety, Phobias, and their causes. This is a well-organized book with great information. The workbook is interesting as well but I haven't really delved into the exercises much. I would recommend it if you are looking for an introduction to understanding these topics and some of the non-medication type things you can do about them.
