“I am so glad I reviewed this book as reading it has been transformative. I had no idea death anxiety was its own thing and to find my symptoms and experiences laid out before was an emotional experience. I will be continuing to use this book to help myself live my life freely”. – Zoey Mitchell, anxiety UK Participation Group member
