How I Learned to Live With Panic

What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Award-winning blogger and author Claire Eastham is an expert on panic. She’s not a doctor or an academic, but over a seven-year period, she has experienced 371 panic attacks (and counting), and learnt a thing or two along the way.

Part memoir, part guide, How I Learned to Live with Panic is an intimate, honest and ultimately uplifting exploration into panic attacks. In practical thematic chapters Claire covers the crisis points where panic can hit and interviews a host of people – scientists, professors, dieticians, psychologists and people who struggle with panic – to anatomise how it can be managed.

Frank, funny and blazing, Claire’s story will speak to all those seeking to reclaim their lives.

‘I wish I had this book when I was 18… It’s smart, witty, informative and, importantly, it lets you know that if you have panic attacks too…you are not alone’ Dr Sophie Mort, author of A Manual For Being Human

‘An electric, warm, comforting and funny handbook on panic and how to cope and live alongside it’ Laura Dockrill, author of What Have I Done?
