Having helped over 1.5m people across the world to quit sugar, Sarah Wilson now turns her focus and fierce investigatory skills onto the lifetime companion that's brought her the most pain and become her finest teacher. Anxiety. Looking at the triggers and treatments, fashions and fads, she reads widely, interviewing fellow sufferers, mental health patients, philosophers, and even the Dalai Lama, processing all she learns through the prism of her own experience. She pulls at the thread of accepted definitions of anxiety, unravelling the notion that it is a disease that must be medicated into submission. Could anxiety be re-sewn, she asks, into a thing of beauty? There are many books about coping with anxiety. This one encourages the many sufferers of the world's most common mental illness to thrive with anxiety, and even to delight in the possibilities it offers for a richer, fuller life.
