When lack of money AND lack of decent insurance are CAUSES of the anxiety . . . .

Glad to hear it's, um, inexpensive!

(Will put this on a list of books to look at. Thanks for the review!)

Question: Does the author actually discuss what anxiety does to the brain? Or is the title just a play on the 'this is your brain on drugs' riff?

The discussion of what anxiety does to your brain is very, very brief, limited to mentions of a couple hormones that get released when you're anxious and a very general discussion of anxiety as basically your brain's reaction to a threat (real or perceived, present or anticipated) - the information could probably be boiled down to a couple pages. The bulk of the book is devoted to the "what helps" portion of the title.

So yeah, it's probably just a play on the "this is your brain on drugs" thing - from the look of it, the publisher has a whole "this is your brain on __" series, and I imagine they're all more focused on practical ways of dealing with whatever's in the blank than they are on what's specifically going on in your brain.
