Description of this Book

Dr Weekes is the invisible giant on whose shoulders many psychiatrists and psychologists now stand. Her extraordinary story has never been told because she was completely ignored by professionals in the field, who had had no answers to the anxiety state and no understanding of the scholarship that lay behind her work. Yet her books, which sold for a handful of dollars, worked. The mail from grateful readers was unceasing and unmanageable, and the media competed for interviews with her. Dr Weekes's approach to treating anxiety proved state-of-the-art, and her books still change lives. Her work benefitted tens of millions of people, according to one of the foremost experts in anxiety, Dr David Barlow. How was it that she came to have such a unique understanding of the anxiety state, which was an epidemic hiding in plain sight? Cracking the anxiety code was a long, isolated, individual mission. It started when a terrified young woman, about to earn her first doctorate, was standing on a London wharf in 1929 feeling she simply couldn't go on. It ended with her changing the trajectory of global treatment.
