Lucinda Bassett narrates her compact lesson with vocal appeal, the credibility of a seasoned expert, and a range of positive emotional tones. Even as she recounts her own struggles with various anxiety disorders and their symptoms, she's fun to hear because she's so optimistic and confident in her down-to-earth advice. Her clear, consistent message is that all aspects of our mental and social functioning can influence anxiety symptoms. The result is a can-do approach that reduces helplessness by giving people more knowledge and more control. A two- hour audio won't solve complex mental health issues but, as a start, listeners won't find a more inviting overview of what it takes to manage anxiety problems.
