The BEST book for dealing with Anxiety or Panic

After a 4+ year struggle with a sudden onslught of Panic and Anxiety, I think I have finally found the definitive answer. Dr. Wilson's book (and the gentleman reading the Audible version is very good too) explains every aspect and detail of this aggressive disorder, which actually begins in the thought processes. Years of grieving after the deaths of my parents and friends back to back and the gradual distancing of my siblings kept a continual stream of stress surging through my body. Then one day the nerves give up and BANG! You have your first Panic Attack, which scares the CRAP out of you, then starts the cycle. Fear of the next attack; where and when it will happen and what will it DO to me???. If this or something similar happened to you and you are caught in the cycle, then this book is your answer. Takes a lot of courage along with tons of time, effort and understanding of the basic "Rules". One day it will all make sense and then the healing begins!
