Reviews

If you have an interest in phobias, this book is a definite must-read. Written by two outstanding psychologists, the text reviews all major phobias clearly and in an engaging manner. I thoroughly recommend it.' - Koula Asimakopoulou, Senior Lecturer in Health Psychology, King's College London
