I imagine the book would prove most valuable to clinicians with little or no experience in this area of anxiety disorders and best suits use during weekly rather than an intensive treatment format. (Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London)
...an excellent manual for overcoming phobias and fears, providing clear, step-by-step instructions and worksheets in a user-friendly format. (CBT Today)

If possible, it is best to use this book during individual psychotherapy. An experienced clinical psychologist who uses cognitive-behavioral therapy will be able to help you use this book to get maximum benefit. This book is a combination of techniques from cognitive therapy and behavior therapy. Feel free to read about the basics of these types of research-supported treatments before purchasing this book. I would highly recommend this workbook to anyone motivated to work on their anxiety, fears/phobias. Other good titles to work on anxiety are written by Dr. David Barlow. Consider some of his other books as well.
This book explains how phobias are created, that they're a somewhat random by-product of stress. This goes a long way in de-stigmatizing them, and putting one in a good frame of mind for serious treatment. I found it extraordinarily helpful, especially in conjunction with seeing a behavioral therapist. In about 1-2 years, I lost my recently-developed phobia of wind which was having a very negative impact on my enjoyment of my sailboat. I stopped seeing the therapist, but continued using the book, and eventually overcame my fear of heights. I had suffered from this phobia most of my adult life. It had gotten so bad that not only could I not sit in the front row of a theater balcony, but I couldn't stand to see other people near the edge of a height. It definitely interfered with sightseeing while on vacation. But I can now work on a ladder with relative ease.
I would recommend this workbook to anyone who has a needle knife phobia.
