About Drew Linsalata

Drew is the creator and host of The Anxious Truth, a stunningly popular anxiety podcast that's been in full swing since 2015. With over 500,000 downloads (and growing), The Anxious Truth enjoys a large, vibrant and engaged social media community of amazing humans supporting, inspiring, encouraging and empowering each other to overcome anxiety and fear. Listen to a few episodes of the podcast and you'll know right away that this isn't what you're used to hearing about anxiety. Drew's unique, no-nonsense approach to solving the anxiety problem combines his strong, confident voice with genuine care, compassion and a desire to see others learn and succeed.

Having been through not one, not two, but THREE different periods of debilitating anxiety, panic, agoraphobia, and depression, Drew turned it all around in 2008. Armed with a deep understanding of the cognitive nature of this problem, courage, and an intense desire to solve the problem once and for all, Drew rid himself of the irrational fear that fuels the disorder. Now living a normal, happy, productive life without avoidance and retreat, Drew spends a fair amount of his time tending to his podcast, writing about anxiety disorder issues, and interacting with the large community surrounding his work.

A technology entrepreneur by day, Drew's true passion is using his own knowledge and life experience to teach and empower others as they work to solve their own anxiety and fear problems. When he's not podcasting, writing or taking care of business, you can find Drew attempting to be a proficient guitarist or in the gym. A fan of scientific inquiry, Stoicism, Taoism, and Buddhism, Drew is also a lifelong night owl that's probably staying up too late right now.

Oh, and Drew realizes that writing about himself in the third person is a bit ridiculous, but that seems to be the way it's done in these parts, and there's nothing wrong with a bit of ridiculousness now then!

Reviews of An Anxiety Story - How I Recovered From Anxiety, Panic and Agoraphobia by Drew Linsalata

Bethany McLaughlin reviewed on March 2, 2021

Understanding and hope are irreplaceable lifelines for those who deal with severe anxiety and panic attacks. In this book, Drew Linsalata offers both. He shares his journey to recovery from disordered anxiety with straightforwardness and poignancy, leaving the reader feeling understood and inspired. Best of all, he provides practical insight and information on how recovery is possible for anyone willing to put in the work. An example of everyday valor and determination, Drew tells the plain truth about what it takes to recover while never expecting more of anyone than he was willing to do himself.

As someone who has benefitted immeasurably from Drew’s podcast, videos, and community in overcoming my own debilitating anxiety and panic, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

I found the book quite profound. My anxiety started in my mid-fifties, when I grew a company larger than I expected. Too many details, too many people depending on me. I never perceived that I had real limits to my sense of emotional stability. My doctor prescribed LEXAPRO which
I used as a crutch until I retired early. Now, I'm a writer and at peace.
