More than half of all Americans suffer from one or more phobias at some time during their lives. This audiobook draws upon the extraordinary wealth of current scientific and clinical research on phobias, including Dr. Gardner's own experiences with patients, to answer six pressing questions for anyone who suffers from phobias and for the friends and relatives of such sufferers:

* What is a phobia? What are its typical symptoms? How do I know if I have a phobia?
* What causes phobias? Are they inherited or learned?
* Who is vulnerable to phobias? Do phobias indicate mental illness?
* How can phobias be diagnosed, managed, and overcome? What therapies have proven most successful in treating phobias?
* What can I learn about my specific phobia? Does it have a name? Do others suffer from it?
* What resources are available to help me overcome my phobias or help a friend with phobias?

This audiobook is a hands-on guide to recovery from the bondage of phobias. Although the authors certainly do not claim that this material will cure all phobias, they are confident that the inquiries, guidelines, and checklists contained here will guide readers toward the help they need in understanding and overcoming phobias.

"[The] main reason the audio sounds so much like a fascinating documentary is the professional smoothness of narrator Ron Hippe. With his natural enunciation and vocal cadence he adds a relaxing element to the complex and often-intense material. For an audience with a lot of mental noise going on to begin with, his steadiness and command of the concepts will calm everybody down and allow more openness to what these authors have to offer."
