"It nicely includes diagnostic criteria tables for each DSM-IV anxiety disorder, as well as other supporting data and illustrations...a useful resource to the clinician generally unfamiliar with current literature on anxiety disorders who need a concise, clinically-oriented reference." Jeffrey S. Ross, MD, Doody Publishing, Inc.
"This comprehensive text describes the development of diagnostic criteria and discovery of effective treatments. The principal anxiety disorders are covered in well-organized separate chapters...Therapists working with anxiety disorders will find this book a valuable addition to their library." Raeann Dumont, Readings
Anxiety Disorders is very authoritative and aimed at the specific user group of practicing psychiatrists, yet is also quite readable and probably accessible to a knowledgeable lay user for general information. In spite of its necessarily clinical nature, it offers a recurring touch of personality...The combination of utility, authority, and personality make Anxiety Disorders a valuable tool for all psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. It is recommended for purchase by individual practitioners and by medical and academic libraries." E-Streams
