I am a clinical psychologist who has treated many people with panic disorder and agoraphobia. Claire Weekes' books are remarkably helpful. I ask every patient with panic disorder to read this book. It is interesting to me that the book was written before the term "panic disorder" was a common term and the book does not say it is for treatment of "panic." The descriptions of the panic experience are so descriptive, however, that every patient recognizes immediately that Dr. Weekes knows about panic. I have often heard patients say something like "it seemed like she was in my mind and body because she knew just what I was experiencing.
The terminology is out of date. However, the wisdom is just as useable now as when the book was written.

I read this book 32 years ago and it literally saved my life. I had gone through such a terrible psychological trauma that I just couldn't get over it. I had been suicidal for months and the psychiatrists I put my thrust into just made the whole thing grow worse and worse. I finally left this big city hospital and its lousy staff and went back to my hometown, but with little hope of ever going any better. If I had to die, I wanted to do it at home, I told myself.
Then I fell on this book by accident. Sheer luck, I would say. It was right on target. It gave a name to my misery and a way out of it.
I still have it - as a memento, and also as a useful tool to pass on if I ever meet some poor soul stuck in the same hellish nightmare I knew once.
If you ever know somebody suffering from such a plight and feeling totally helpless about it, please, give this person a chance with this book. That may make a difference between life or death.

One of the customer reviewers said a million stars wouldn't be enough. Claire Weekes is a saint if you ask me. This book has saved mine and I don't even know how many lives. God bless her wherever she is now because if she can't get into heaven......nobody will. Buy it.

I've suffered from anxiety and panic attacks and agoraphobia for over 6 years. I thought I was alone until I found Dr. Claire Weekes book. Her advice and explanations and my hard work led to recovery. I since helped start up and lead a self-help group based on her teachings. I've read many books on this topic and I have found Dr. Claire Weekes to be the absolute BEST. Any question you have, any symptom you experience, she explains. There is a pattern to this illness and she helps you understand this, there is a path into this illness and there is a path OUT. Many could be spared much suffering if we had been educated along the way about our natural responses to prolonged stress. Dr.Weekes has since passed on but she has left a wonderful gift of freedom to those who follow her advice.

This last paragraph is the entry I made in 1999 and now in 2012 I am still soooo grateful for Dr. Claire Weekes understanding of this problem. I wish everyone could read and understand how our body and mind work together. If we understood how we got ourselves into this state we could lose our fear of it and relax and eventually we would desensitize and feel great again. The world has not caught up with Dr. Weeks work and understanding. I'd recommend you read at least one of her books if you are ill (and even if you aren't) and follow her advise and it will prove to you that there is an answer to your prayers.

I've been meaning to write this review of this lifesaver of a book for some time now. I had come across this book over 10 years ago while I was frantically looking in the bookshop for some explanation of why I was 'going crazy'. At the time I didn't know I was having a panic attack. While I was a college student in LA, I was suddenly taken over by this feeling I was going to die and lose it at the same time. It was a freaky experience to say the least, something I had never experienced before. I had remembered a friend mentioning she had had panic attacks before and at the time I had no idea what she was talking about, I couldn't relate at all...until that night I had experienced it myself! I was studying for finals and had been dealing (or rather not dealing) with family problems, emotional problems, etc. When I flipped thru the first pages I felt the writer was speaking directly to me and telling me to relax and fear nothing cause this will pass. This was the mental crutch that carried me thru over 2 months of not being able to sleep without prescribed medication. Now I realize it was my body telling me that I had to slow down, stop and really look at myself, my life and learn to understand and recognize my feelings instead of stuffing them down inside, ignoring them, hoping they'd just go away. Claire Weekes' words of wisdom and compassion helped me to see I wasn't going mad and to understand my panic attacks and to let them just be and 'float' thru them. Since then I haven't had any attacks, but when I feel I'm on the edge of one, I go back to this book and remember to float and not fight. Fortunately I've been able to pass this book on to 2 people who had been going thru similar attacks and they were just as relieved and grateful that they were going thru something quite normal and natural. Thank you Claire Weekes for writing this book which I hope will find its way into those hands in need.
