Anxieties are abundant. At home, at work, on the internet, in the news. Anxiety gets at everyone from time to time, that's just part of life, but we're told we're all feeling more anxious ever before, and for longer periods of time. Some say anxiety is a modern epidemic significant enough to challenge the dominance of depression as the most common mental health problem. This books looks at the possibility that busy lifestyles and career pressures are increasing anxiety levels, as well as investigating whether we are in fact more anxious now than previous generations. Is anxiety just a cruel consequence of being alive? 

Graham Davey deals with the big questions: What is anxiety good for? What are the unique modern-day causes of our anxieties and stresses? What turns normal everyday anxiety into disabling disorders such as phobias, social anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, pathological worrying and post-traumatic stress disorder? If we want to conquer anxiety, we first need to understand why it has come to hold such a prominent place in our modern world.
