Claire Eastham is an expert on panic. She’s not a doctor or an academic but in her 31 years she has had more than 300 panic attacks so she has learnt a thing or two along the way. Part memoir, part guide, this is an intimate, honest and ultimately uplifting exploration into panic attacks. In practical thematic chapters Claire covers the crisis points where panic can hit: job interviews, social situations, attacks at night. She interviews a host of people – scientists, professors, dieticians, psychologists and people who struggle with panic – to anatomise how panic works and how it can be managed. Panic is a condition which will effect 1 in 4 of us, and yet it remains stigmatised and misunderstood. Now Claire has written the book she wishes had been available to her after she experienced her first attack.
