"The Highly Sensitive Person--How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You" by Elaine N Aron, PHD.
I have found that this book has best captured the essence of who I truly am. I have a posting in the Chewing the Fat board about personality type versus benzo prescription that covers this.
I've also found Dr Bourne's handbook on Anxiety to be very useful.

Has anyone read a book called Worse Than Heroin?  If so, what did you think of it.
Was just about to order Benzo-Wise and thought I'd search for some other books while I'm at it.

Have not heard of the book you mention. Did read benzo-wise and it helped me a lot during my w/d.

The book by Claire Weekes "Hope and Help for Your Nerves" was very helpful for me when I was young and first dealing with panic attacks!

Another excellent read is AT LAST A LIFE - Anxiety and Panic Free by Paul David.  It's available as an eBook, he suffered with severe chronic anxiety for over 10 years but finally overcame these obstacles. 



He also has a great site called Anxiety No More.
