Summary
From the Publisher: When this important work was originally published in 1950-the first book in this country on anxiety-it was hailed as a work ahead of its time. In the revised edition of this now-classic study, the distinguished author of Love and Will deepens his exploration into anxiety theory. Dr. May challenges the idea that mental health means living without anxiety, and he explores anxiety's potential for self-realization as well as ways to avoid its destructive aspects
