Best anxiety book for my arsenal?

Options
I'm an emotional and binge eater in need of help. Also looking for a great book on anxiety. I'm working with The Binge Code by Alison Kerr and The Happiness Trap (based on ACT) by Russ Harris, I think.

I'd love to add a book on anxiety as my anxiety is really high right now. Does anyone have any to recommend ? Thank you.

    Anything by Thich Nhat Hanh I’d recommend for anxiety or stress.

    Hmm, while I am a voracious reader, I don't think I read anything on anxiety. Since starting to practice yoga in 1996, I've transitioned from self-medicating with food to using regular exercise to manage anxiety and depression.

    During periods of greater stress, I add more exercise. I don't currently have a gym membership so this is all stuff I do in my house, yard, and woods behind my house.

    Thank you for your answer. I do walk 10 miles a day (you'd think that would help) but have so much anxiety I can barely get into the gym. I'm lucky if i get there one time a week. I do not have privacy at home and am too embarrassed and anxious to work out at home. Thank you for bringing up yoga. I know they have classes at the gym. Again the anxiety gets in the way but I guess it's a goal I can strive for.

    I also have anxiety in just about everything I do.

    (Always striving. Never seeming to move forward.)

    Again, thank you for your answer and insight.
