A therapist had suggested I buy this book. I can honestly say that this the number one best book I have ever bought for self-help purposes. The techniques and practices taught in this book can be very powerful when used properly as described in the book.

Basically the author teaches us how to be mindful without judgment of what we feel as anxiety or panic. Instead of fighting away feelings of fear, the author tells us to invite and welcome these emotions, and watch them without any judgment. He describes how we should observe with keen detail the inner behavior of our body as though we are a detached part of ourselves. Imagine stepping outside of yourself and looking at what is going on inside you while you feel fear. You notice your heart rate increasing heavily, your breathing becomes shallow, etc. A normal person would try and fight off such feelings which makes him/her feel even worse. But instead you should simply allow it to occur and understand fully what's going on without judgment or any wish that the fear will disappear. If done properly, it's amazing but suddenly the entire fear process loses it's meaning and disappears. It's hard to describe, but somehow your body learns that it's causing these reactions like racing heart for no real rational reason...and it learns to stop behaving this way. Of course you can not have this as a goal when practicing mindfulness; the whole point is to observe with no goal or intention in mind.

I also bought another book along with this one, "Full Catastrophe Living", and that presents similar concepts as is in this book. Nevertheless I would still recommend to read this book (Calming Your Anxious Mind) before any other books.

If you're looking for further reading, I'd suggest these other books also:

-The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle
-From Here to Here: Turning Toward Enlightenment by Gary Crowley

I didn't expect it to, but this book got me into meditation. I highly recommend it.

I have read a variety of books on the subject of mindfulness, and this is tops. It is well written. It addresses a number of
personal concerns, not just anxiety. It clearly and simply describes a number of mental exercises that can be performed
so as to diminish anxiety and boost confidence. The material is certainly derived from Buddhist sources, but people do
not have to become Buddhist or understand Buddhist terminology to profit from this book. This book is a real winner
for anyone who wants to improve themselves and find greater peace of mind.

Great book helps tremendously explaining why the body has the physical symptoms of anxiety. And helps by using breathing meditation to calm the mind.

This book was quite helpful in grasping the usefulness of meditation. I have tried relaxation techniques before, but this book revealed how useful it really is. I originally read the book because the author was being interviewed by The Graedons on THE PEOPLES PHARMACY radio show. I got a copy from the library and liked it so much I actually purchased my own copy from Amazon.

Initially the book seemed repetitive and I almost quit reading it, but I persevered and found it to be quite helpful. I find it most useful when I awaken in the middle of the night and my mind "turns on" and will not turn off. Using what I learned in this book, I can turn off my mind and get back to sleep 9 times out of 10.

This has been a terrific book for guiding a novice meditator. It definitely helped to set appropriate expectations--what it is and what it is not-- and to initiate the process. Also Dr Brantley's further discussions about next steps along the meditation journey have guided additions to my meditation practice.

Along with Jon Kabat-Zinn's Full Catastrophe Living, this is an indispensable book for anyone who suffers from GAD, SAD, or panic disorder. This is compassionate, pragmatic, deep therapy that has great power on its own and can be a great supplement to working with a therapist. There's strong current science behind it, and 2500 years of Buddhist practice. Very simply, if you learn to focus in the present you won't worry so much about the future, or beat yourself up about the past.
I found the information in this book helpful in deepening meditation. However, the book became tedious as the author repeatedly tells you what he is going to tell you, tells you, then tells you what he has told you. I think all the useable information could have been presented in three chapters.
