Great book and easy to read. Also helpful for people/parents who are supporting children with Anxiety to better understand. The level of thought and thinking required to understand this book would be best suited to typically developing children over 10 years old

This is a book I can relate to myself as well as for service users I work with.

Good facts on how thoughts and emotions effect and impact someone's anxiety. Useful, especially for youth age and early adulthood as well as older.

Very useful but more suited to typically developing children
