The Anxiety Book, by contrast, is not footnoted, although it has an extensive set of endnotes for readers who are interested in finding references in specific areas. This book is less academic in tone and more easily accessible to people suffering from anxiety disorders. Like The Treatment of Anxiety Disorders, it contains many useful guides for both clinicians and patients. Rather than being organized around individual anxiety disorders, The Anxiety Book begins with an easy-to-understand description of "the faces of anxiety" before moving on to the common themes that link the anxiety syndromes. Having been introduced to the individual anxiety disorders, readers move on to the cognitive and behavioral solutions to the anxiety problem. This is followed by an extended discussion of "serenity skills" as well as "diet, exercise, and herbs." The heart of the book is its wonderful discussion of the medicines used to treat anxiety disorders.
