Popular author and blogger Kerri Sackville's very funny take on her life with anxiety. This is an insight into anxiety that only Kerri could give!

The Little Book Of Anxiety is for anyone who has experienced anxiety - which is pretty much everyone. It is a funny book about a serious subject: the ways in which anxiety can impact on your life and the lives of those around you.

With humour, insight and searing honesty, Kerri Sackville opens up about the trials and sheer absurdities of living a worried a life. From crazed nailbiting, to being hysterical in a jammed lift, to fearing her husband is dead when he's late home from work, Kerri has done it all.

If you know the agonies of sleepless nights, regularly jump to Worst-Case Scenario, or drive your loved ones mad with your irrational fears, then this book may very well save your sanity.


Sackville...has a gentle humour and impressive understanding of the mental processes that cause her to spiral down the rabbit hold of worry. This clarity, combined with her self-deprecation, means that she is able to bring the reader into the whirling centre of her panic attack while seeming rational, calm and in control. It’s an impressive e double act and will help anyone struggling with, or struggling to understand anxiety.

Wellbeing Magazine

It isn't a self-help book preaching solutions, but a story of [Sackville's] journey with anxiety that she hopes will show people they're not alone.
