Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Mozart's Brain and the Fighter Pilot comes an in-depth look at the science of anxiety and some essential guidelines for dealing with it.Bombarded by a constant media feed about global terrorism, war, rising unemployment rates, and a mind-numbing array of ads that urge us to "ask our doctor" about the newest anti-anxiety medication, it feels as if this country is having a collective anxiety attack. In fact, anxiety is one of the most common mental health problems in America.Poe's Heart and the Mountain Climber tackles this disorder head-on, with a fresh perspective and a straightforward approach to understanding our anxiety before it paralyzes us. The message is vital and empowering: anxiety is not a mental illness that must require medication, but often a normal, biological response to stress.
