I was totally bewildered when I had my first panic attack on an aeroplane in Dec 2002. I scoured the Internet for advice but found nothing that seemed to work.
I came across "Understanding Panic Attacks and Overcoming Fear" a month or so ago and found that this book was describing everything that I'd experienced and answered many of the questions I'd been searching for.

I had been prescribed anti-depressants for the panic attacks. This book has given me the confidence to come off the medication (gradually!!!) and try some of the "personal experiments" Dr Roger Baker suggests.
I thoroughly recommend "Understanding Panic Attacks and Overcoming Fear". I can honestly say that it has changed my life!!

If you suffer from panic attacks you must get this book. I had a terrible time with panic attacks that totally ruined my life. I had severe panic attacks for five years and did not understand what was happening to me and woke up most mornings just wishing they would go away.

The day someone gave me Roger Bakers book on Understanding Panic Attacks and Overcoming Fear, was the first time in years that I felt a sense of release. It reassured me I was not going crazy and that panic was a thing that can and could happen to the strongest of people.

I had just created a big fear of them and in turn over the years, made myself worse. When I started on the book it took me a bit of time to do as he said, probably as I think at first when you start taking into action what Roger Baker tells you, in the book you are a little wary. You even convince yourself that it could not possibly work for you, and I was also very very scared of panic. The thought of going into a situation where they are sure to come on and to let them come, was very hard for me.

Eventually I followed the book and found his methods to work very well and might I add it was very easy to follow. Over time I now live free of panic and it is the best thing ever. When I say free of panic, I may get the odd panicky feeling about twice a year or so. Thanks to Roger Baker I fear them no more so it's just uncomfortable like getting a headache, but I go on as normal and it soon passes.

This is a great book and Roger Baker is an amazing man that helped me to change my life and now I can live a happy life again. God bless Roger Baker and anyone that has to go through the same journey as I did.

If you suffer from panic get this book now, it really does help you to understand what panic is all about which in its self is essential to anyone who like me suffers from panic and wants to help rid themselves of this. The book also gives you a self help programme to help you confront and hopefully overcome your fear of panic.

Undoubtedly the most important book I have ever read. After 10 years of totally debilitating, often more than daily, panic attacks leading to agoraphobia, a friend handed me this book.

I did follow it to the tee and put in a lot of hard work and within months my attacks had stopped altogether (I did see an immediate decrease in regularity just from reading the book!)

No attacks in 8 years and I am now reclaiming the life I could have had. I have bought copies of this book now for 6 friends/friends of friends and every single one has overcome their panic attacks.

How I wish Roger Baker had started his study into panic attacks and, therefore, got this book out earlier!

Literally a life-changing book.

A fair priced, helpful and informative book. Creates an intensive understanding of panic attacks. Highly recommended for anyone who suffers from this or knows of someone. Useful activities and well explained, easy to understand.

Several weeks before the birth of our baby boy i suffered from my first panic attack, at the time i thought i was having a heart attack, which scared the living daylights out of me. A trip to A & E to check out my health eased my nerves when they reported that i was more than healthy.

I visited the doctor who explained i exhibited all the symptoms of a panic attack and anxiety, which came as a shock as i hadn't thought i was particularly stressed about anything. The doctor explained that it may have been caused by worry about the imminent arrival of the baby........ this made perfect sense. He added that the panicky feelings may subside after the birth.

Unfortunately, although i did not have a full blown attack as before i continued to exhibit all the signs of panic and anxiety. This is when i got worried, fearing that i would have another attack and continue to have symptoms for an extended period. Reading Dr Roger Baker's book has virtually rid me of any of these feelings, as he says knowledge is key in understanding the attacks and helping to reduce and finally elimate the symptoms.

I would recommend this book to anyone suffering from panic attacks and anxiety.
