Use Your Brain to Beat Panic Anxiety has a title that would seem to place it firmly in the self-help section of Waterstone's.

But this would do it something of a disservice. In fact it is a detailed look at understanding and treating anxiety disorders, intended for a broadly lay audience. Its biggest section, on cognitive behaviour therapy, shows why many readers will find this of great personal value.
