From the Inside Flap:

One in four Americans has unhealthy anxiety--that's over 73 million people. What have we turned to? Pills. Have they helped? The numbers say no. David Burns, M.D., knows what nobody else does: traditional therapy and drugs don't cure anxiety. But revolutionary new cognitive behavior therapies do, and Burns has developed clinically proven techniques. The road to a cure begins with discovering the stories we tell ourselves that make us worry--"If I'm late for the meeting I'll be fired and never find another job"; "
"There's no way on earth this plane can stay in the air." Burns provides an arsenal of techniques for exposing the lies and proving them wrong. Here you'll find:
-Methods for uncovering the sophisticated lies we tell ourselves that make us worry
-A cost/benefit analysis, for figuring out what you get--good and bad--out of hanging on to hangups and phobias
-Playful ways to test the lie that's making you afraid
The good news is that the techniques in his Anxiety Toolkit take 60 seconds to work. This is an indispensable guide for anyone who's spent sleepless nights imagining a workplace disaster, dreading a plane trip or public speaking engagement, or fretting about the safety of a loved one.

About the Author:

Dr David Burns is the author of five books including the bestselling Feeling Good and Feeling Good Together. He is an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine and has served as Visiting Scholar at Harvard Medical School. In February 2008 Dr Burns and Feeling Good were featured on the BBC's Imagine series (first episode).
