This book by Dr. Paul Foxman has all but paved the path to peace, the way to freedom from anxiety. He offers a clear exposition of what severe anxiety is, where it comes from, and what to do about it. He shares his personal experience with trauma and anxiety, as well as his understandings gained from decades of helping others. In this easy style, he provides unlimited hope and specific information on how anxiety can be overcome. -- John R. Pullen There have been endless books written by countless authors on the subject of anxiety and how best to identify and cope with its paralyzing manifestations. What makes Dancing with Fear so special and so welcome is that Paul Foxman speaks eloquently and intelligently to the two key people involved in accomplishing full recovery from this insidious problem: the sufferer and his therapist. Because Dr. Foxman knows, firsthand, what gut-wrenching anxiety feels like, he never minimizes its impact nor does he hide his own humanness behind his degree. It becomes obvious from the first chapter that Dr. Foxman is a consummate professional who, thank heavens, can honestly teach from his heart. -- Ann Seagrave Dr. Foxman's book, Dancing with Fear, is a comprehensive and compassionate overview of the most crippling of our 'social diseases'-fear-with a wealth of practical approaches to loosening its hold on us. The work will find a wide and appreciative audience. -- Joseph Chilton Pearce
