Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite

I chose to read Inside the Anxiety Brain by Lori Flemming because my daughter and I both suffer from anxiety. I wanted to hear someone else’s perspective about how they deal with it. Reading this book was extremely helpful to me.

Flemming has a casual way of writing so that it feels as if she is sitting next to you talking, instead of you reading her words. Anxiety is a pretty serious matter which also means that it could be a boring subject to read about. Flemming did a wonderful job of not only keeping me interested in what she had to say but she educated me on anxiety as well. She mentioned “brain fog” in chapter five. This is something I get after an anxiety attack but never knew what to call it or even how to explain it. For her giving me a name to this, I am extremely grateful.

Flemming stresses that she is not a medical professional throughout her book. I think this is why I liked her book so much. It is because she is a real person telling others how she deals with anxiety. She never tells readers what they should do, only what helps her cope with anxiety. Sometimes patients make the best doctors. This is a good book to read if you or anyone you know suffers from anxiety. It may help you to understand why people act the way they do. I recommend this book to all anxiety sufferers.
