Well, my old stand by is 'Hope and Help for Your Nerves' by Dr. Claire Weekes.

A couple other easier, quicker reads are 'Keep Calm and Carry On' by Jonathan Forrest & Andrew Hughes-Hallett

And, 'Living In the Moment' by Anna Black

I would say' Hope and Help for Your Nerves' is a good one to help understand and deal with anxiety.

'Keep Calm and Carry On', is a "handbook on how you can choose your emotions and change your attitude".

'And Living In the Moment' is basically a book on mindfulness meditations.

"Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life" and "The Happiness Trap" are two really good ones in my opinion, particularly the former. They're pretty cheap too I think...

Also try The Anxiety and Phobia workbook....helps you understand what is going on and give suggestions and coping skills....you actually write in the workbook, which is also a big help.

There is a CBT for Dummies book, may even be in your library. My CBT book with sample TEA format is Sam Obitz' Been There, Done that, Do This.

Some people object to the large print, personal experience, and small size. But it is and remains my foundation.

I was just recommended books by Dr. Claire Weeks, too.  Thought that I'd try an audio book and see if that might get me more out-of-myself than having a regular book in my hands.  I just ordered "Pass Through Panic", by Dr. Weeks.  You can find some good deals on Ebay...  Chuck

I had done many programs and read many books on the topic, but the two that eventually put me on the path to recovery in a big way were "At Last a Life," by Paul David, and "Essential Help for your Nerves," by Claire Weekes, it is I think her most updated and comprehensive book on the subject.  It also contains journals she wrote to patients which are very helpful.  Both authors take basically the same approach to recovery, not just coping.  Both suffered from generalized anxiety, and Paul had it very bad with depersonalization.  Claire says out of her thousands of patients, she never met one who couldn't recover given the right information, keep that in mind.

The books I have found helpful for me so far is Dr. Claire weekes I think she has a few but the Hope and Help for your nerves is a very good one. I also read "At last a life" by paul david I felt like his was similar to Dr. Claire weekes books, some of the things he said in his book. I also have the Overcoming anxiety for dummies that is a workbook with lots of things in it..
