I purchased it on ebay and I haven't read it in-depth or anything, but I did scan over some of it. He talks about his "one move" that helps you stop having PAs. Very basically, what he's saying is this: When you feel a PA coming on, instead of fighting it,
"Embrace and accept the fear so the emotions can run freely and dissipate,
rather than becoming locked in a vicious cycle of recurring anxiety.
In other words, observe and do not react."
Welcome it as if it were a friend. Don't try to fight it.
Even demand that it give you the worst it can give you. This empowers you and you are, in effect, calling the panic's bluff. It shows that YOU are actually in control. Therefore, you are not a victim any longer. By demanding that the fear become worse, you're moving in the same direction as the fear and it has no choice but to retreat, since you're no longer struggling against it.
Of course, this is just a small slice of what he teaches, but he does make very valid points. I feel that it is pretty similar to what I learned in Claire Weekes' book. She taught: Face. Accept. Float thru the anxiety. Let time pass.
If you have any questions, just email me. I am not saying that the book he sells is not worth buying, but it is very similar to what we already know. It's the putting the info into action that can be the hardest. When I feel anxy, I have to tell myself, quite firmly, that it is just a feeling, not based on anything real. It has helped me to do this thankfully!
HUGS to All!

This was actually an "e-book". You download it to your pc.
But like Harry said, you can find LOTS of good buys on ebay! Why pay retail?

Thanks I'll look for it on ebay, but he does mention coaching and some other bonus material on his website.

Hello Gina,

The post you pulled up is well over 2 years old and I do not believe Janet has post here in a very long time. 

Thank you for your insight into the topic. I hope you have started a thread of your own as we would love to get to know you better.  Welcome aboard.
