"Success stories of real people are part of the reason this mental health audio sounds so helpful and familiar. It shows how patterns of fear and avoidance become mental habits and explains the neurochemical processes that are involved in phobias and anxiety disorders--all without sounding pedantic or overly prescriptive. But the main reason the audio sounds so much like a fascinating documentary is the professional smoothness of narrator Ron Hippe. With his natural enunciation and vocal cadence he adds a relaxing element to the complex and often-intense material. For an audience with a lot of mental noise going on to begin with, his steadiness and command of the concepts will calm everybody down and allow more openness to what these authors have to offer.

His first book, Biocosm, was selected as one of the ten best science books of 2003 by the editors of Amazon.com and was featured in major stories in TIME, U.S. News & World Report, Harper's, and National Geographic and other major publications. Gardner?s path-breaking scientific articles have appeared in Complexity (the scientific journal of the Santa Fe Institute), Acta Astronautica (the scientific journal of the International Academy of Astronautics), the International Journal of Astrobiology, and the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society. He is a regular lecturer at prominent institutions around the world.

Fear of flying, fear of spiders, fear of crowds, fear of needles. There seems an endless list of phobias that between them afflict up to half the population. This book describes the most common hang-ups and how to come to terms with them.
