Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Summer/Fall 2004: Everyone feels anxious at times. Challenges such as workplace pressures, public speaking, highly demanding schedules or writing an exam can lead to a sense of worry, even fear. These sensations are different from the ones associated with an anxiety disorder. People suffering from an anxiety disorder are subject to intense, prolonged feelings of fright and distress for no obvious reason. Anxiety disorders are the most common of all mental health problems. It is estimated that they affect approximately 1 in 10 people, and they are more prevalent among women than among men. The author of this work not only provides us with a comprehensive review of factors that contribute to excessive fear and anxiety, more importantly, she develops a model for understanding the gender differences in anxiety disorders.
