What books have changed your life? Whether it be for anxiety/panic or just helped you grow spiritually.

I've read a ton of books in the last 20 yrs but few have had a great effect on me. The one book that had a huge effect and changed my life for the better and enlightened me spiritually was a book from Eckhart Tolle called A New earth
Has anyone read this one?

I have not read that book but will have to check it out.

A couple I recommend to members are:

The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook, Fourth Edition

Pass Through Panic: Freeing Yourself from Anxiety and Fear
by: Claire Weekes

The one that I will say changed me and helped me to face life better was It's Always Something by Gilda Radner.

Great topic.

Great suggestions.
And I would think Gilda had a lot of insight. She was awsome.


Oh you have to check out Eckhart Tolle's book. He was featured on Oprah and she had a 10 week class with him about this book. You can go to Oprah.com and download all 10 courses for free.
It truly changed me.


Thanks Kitt ;-)

Good Day to All of you!!
 
Great Topic, I absolutely LOVE to read.  
 
One book I found (and still do find) helpful with my A/P is Coping With Anxiety: 10 simple ways to relieve anxiety, fear, and worry.
 
It's a smaller book so I often carry it with me when I'm feeling particularly anxious.
 
 
As for general reading: I love Anne Lamott. Her books are so wonderful and give a lighter take on some serious issues of life. Some highly recommended books of hers are: Traveling Mercies, Plan B (sequel), and Grace, Eventually

When Panic Attacks by David Burns.

I have also read the Claire Weekes book and love it as well.

Another bood by David Burns is "the new mood therapy" It is about depression but deals with anxiety too and cognative therapy.

For anxiety/panic, I always rely on my Claire Weekes books.  I usually carry one in my purse.  When I find a part of the book that is helpful, I write the page number and a brief description on the inside cover of the book so I can find it quickly when I need it. 
 
I love to read, so I'm almost always in the middle of one book or another.  I like self-help, and just love a good story that takes me away for a while.

Books I keep at hand include:

'Living with IT' by Bev Aisbett (A Survivor's Guide to Panic Attacks)

'Letting IT Go' by Bev Aisbett (Attaining Awareness out of Adversity)

'Self Help for your Nerves' by Claire Weekes

Always keep these close at hand - very comforting for those 'moments'...
