MEDIA REVIEWS
"This volume presents a comprehensive view of this anxiety disorder, and thus fills a void in the current anxiety literature. Edited by some of the most prolific researchers in the cognitive-behavioral and pharmacological treatments of social phobia, the book presents a balanced view of these two treatment approaches to the disorder....Will be useful to researchers, clinicians, and students interested in this anxiety disorder. It provides a cogent introduction to the clinical syndrome, describes most of the currently effective treatments and highlights areas in need of future research." --"Contemporary Psychology"
"A well-organized, comprehensive book....It not only raises your awareness of this subject but stimulates you to think about social phobia in new ways. It changes your perception about its prevalence and takes you into the mind of those who are hypersensitive, anxious, and avoidant, allowing you to see that social phobia is a real, painful, and debilitating problem....The book's format is logically conceived and builds an understanding of the disorder into a synthesized whole....[The book] does an excellent job delineating and comparing the psychological and pharmacological treatment options available for this heterogeneous group of patients, all of whom require individualized treatment plans....After reading this book, one can no longer say that social phobia is still a 'neglected disorder.'" --"Psychiatric Services"

"The first volume to address the problems of social phobia from every conceivable facet--epidemiology, assessment, diagnosis, theory, research, and treatment....This volume offers hope for lifelong sufferers of social phobia and will be the standard definitive work for years to come." --Aaron T. Beck, University of Pennsylvania Medical Center

"Social Phobia is an excellent, comprehensive introduction to this important subject and also provides an authoritative, up-to-date review of current knowledge and theories....It probably is the best text available on this topic at present." --Stanley Rachman, University of British Columbia

"A landmark, encyclopedic, astonishingly current book....The editors are at the forefront of the recent crescendo of scientific advances in this hitherto neglected area. Scientists investigating social phobia will find this a remarkable resource....It is required reading for all mental health professionals and students." --Donald F. Klein, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and New York State Psychiatric Institute
