This book examines a feeling that unifies us all: fear. It explores it from historical, physical, emotional, and very personal angles. This book invites you to get to know fear on an intimate level and acknowledge the vital role it plays in your life. This book surprised me by being more than a dry scientific look at fear. While the facts are there, they are wrapped in the heart-felt memoir of the author’s own personal struggles and triumphs over deeply rooted fears, both real and imagined.
