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.

About the Author

After the birth of her first child in 1999, Kerri completed a BA in English and Linguistics, and returned to her first love, writing. She has worked as a copywriter and freelance writer for nine years, and in that time has written extensively for mainstream media and parenting magazines, including the Sydney Morning Herald, the Age, The Telegraph, Sunday Life magazine, the Child group of magazines, Littlies magazine (New Zealand) and Notebook magazine.

Kerri also has a long-standing, humorous column in the Australian Jewish News, 'Life And Other Crises', in which she details the endless dramas of her domestic life. Kerri's stories are usually funny, occasionally deeply moving, and always highly personal, and cover everything from weight loss to friendship, sex, parenthood and grief.

In May 2009 Kerri joined Twitter, and quickly built up a following of over 2000. She began blogging shortly afterwards at lifeandothercrises.blogspot.com, and in 2010 was shortlisted for Australasian Blogger of the Year. Kerri is also a regular contributor and popular figure on the enormously successful website Mamamia.com.

As a blogger, Kerri has been interviewed several times on ABC radio, and has been profiled in the Sunday Magazine and Sunday Life magazine. She has been featured as a panellist at the Sydney Jewish Writers Festival 2010 and the Sydney Bloggers Festival 2010, and was recently named as one of Kidspot.com's Top 10 Bloggers.

Kerri is married to Tony, a workaholic architect. They live in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney with their three children - a son aged 11, and two daughters aged nine and three - and their recalcitrant bunny rabbit.

      Comments about The Little Book Of Anxiety:

      Good book but had to keep reminding myself it isn't written by a health professional just someone else with anxiety disorder, and anxiety disorders are very very common, sometimes it read like advice, but think it best to get advice from a professional psychologist rather than a columnist. a funny read though jojand certainly relate able to everyday life.

        I brought this book for my 24yr old daughter who was having anxiety and panic attacks. All other treatments were failing and as I was on this site I punched in the key words and up come this book. My daughter enjoyed reading this book and could relate to the information provided. Enjoyable and a good book for a Mum or friend to give to someone suffering anxiety. Very helpful indeed.

            Comments about The Little Book Of Anxiety:

            I had been looking forward to reading The Little Book of Anxiety (TLBOA) after having read Kerri's other fabulous read When My Husband Does The Dishes. TLBOA is a perfect read. For anyone who suffers a touch of the anxious or for anyone that has an anxious person in their lives, this book is a must read. It takes a head-on and very honest look at situations and thoughts behind an anxious mind and if you are that way inclined, you come away from reading this knowing you are not alone. A book that you can dip back in to from time to time and still find yourself nodding in agreement. Thank you Kerri for such an honest book and many laughs, not at your expense - but at the warm way you write about an anxious life.
