My Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind (Non-fiction) by Scott Stossel

A unique book as the author himself, a successful journalist for Atlantic magazine, suffers from anxiety. The book brings together science, humanities and his own experience of anxiety to exhaustively discuss the condition and treatment. It also serves as an inspiring example of how someone can achieve significant accomplishment whilst struggling with anxiety. If you suffer from anxiety, it might also eerily resonate with you.
