    Wow, after finishing this book I feel like I need to take a deep breath. As someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder, I found much of what Amanda feels/thinks/experiences mimics my own life. Her story in many ways isn't my own, but so much resonated. Amanda spent years of her life in the depths of panic while doctors searched for the wrong answers. Finally, at the age of 25, she gains a name for what plagues her. It's not a cure, but there's strength in a name. Amanda tells her story alterna ...more

    Wow! Not a brilliant literary word, but the first word that flowed from my hand as I started to write this review. Little Panic is a brilliant, articulate, honest, and heartbreaking memoir about living with crippling anxiety. As detailed in her book, Stern exhibited symptoms of an anxiety disorder from a very young age, but was constantly tested and told she had a learning disability.
    Chapters in this book segue smoothly between her youth, and life as an adult; this ably demonstrates the lasting

    Stern does a fabulous job of putting the reader inside the head of someone who struggles with anxiety. I felt her confusion and pain and so wished I could tell those around her to pay more attention. How do you get to 25 without someone realizing that you have a condition that can be helped?

    Little Panic is a memoir of panic and anxiety. I have generalized anxiety disorder and this book was like a therapy session. It’s always nice to know you’re not alone in the world of anxiety.

    A STUNNING, evocative story about the meaning of living with an undiagnosed panic disorder, LITTLE PANIC grips and discomfits in the best way. Stern's honesty is compelling, her humor always spot on. She is a consummate New Yorker from the last moments when New York was still gritty and still had that thing called a soul and kids ran around unfettered by adult supervision. At turns moving, sad, funny and always entertaining, the book shifts seamlessly between adulthood and childhood. These layer ...more

    Amanda's experiences of growing up with an undiagnosed anxiety disorder is tragically common. It is so impressive that Amanda remembers growing up with the disorder and how it made her think and feel. From the outside it seems obvious that she has a family history of anxiety, it is sad that therapists, teachers, and family didn't diagnose it sooner.

    I read this book very quickly and I loved her writing style and the flow of the book. I am a true crime reader and I liked hearing Amanda's experienc

    Amanda suffered from a anxiety disorder due to growing up between divorced parents. One living in Greenwich Village, the other in uptown manhattan. At thirty nine>still single and childless she longed to have that close family that she never had growing up.
