    "Dr. Berman, a psychiatrist and fine writer, gives us a clear, concise, well-written book on everything the lay person and the professional need to know about panic disorder. Dr. Berman examines, in her thoughtful and expert manner, the origins of "panic attacks" and the questions most patients want answered. This marvelous book should be read by anyone who has ever had a panic attack and should be sitting on the bookshelf of every mental health professional."

    "Dr. Carol Berman's book 100 Questions & Answers About Panic Disorder is an excellent guide that should be in the hands of everyone who suffers from panic attacks. The book is filled with the latest information and should be helpful for therapists treating panic attack patients. It is well written, informative, and filled with lively case vignettes."

    "In less than 150 pages, Dr. Berman effectively and nonthreatingly answers the most salient questions regarding panic disorder. Patients who are newly diagnosed, as well as those who have a long history of attacks, will appreciate her concise but thorough writing style and the personal accounts of an individual who has lived with the condition."
