Publisher's Summary

Eleanor Morgan's first-person account of her own struggles with anxiety was published as part of The Vice Guide to Mental Health and was read by five million people across 15 countries within four days.
Anxiety for Beginners will serve as a guide for those who live with anxiety disorders and those who live with them by proxy. Combining her own experiences (rendered in emotive detail) with extensive research with experts (neurologists, psychiatrists, geneticists and fellow sufferers - many of them very familiar faces), Morgan will discover the way in which people can live lives that are not just manageable but enjoyable by learning to accept anxiety rather than spending their lives fighting and being ashamed of it.

Insightful book

Feeling down as I’m listening to this book gives me light at the end of the tunnel. Looking at the causes of anxiety which are so vast from parental influences to illness, childhood experiences and brain chemistry. I had awareness when she spoke about a lady who hated planes as I do to and she said it was more social anxiety which unblocked something which happened to me in my childhood. I liked how honest the author was and how she got her partner to write down her experience of her when she was unwell and how she felt etc I feel it’s s good read for friends and family to so they can learn to understand anxiety.
