Another staple in my teaching studio. Although this book is about Stephanie Burns' experience overcoming her fear of horses, it speaks loudly to anyone "stuck" or afraid of an endeavor. One of my favorites. I don't know why more musicians have not read this book. Her writing is conversational, not full of psycho-babble, and to-the-point. Engaging, even.

Unfortunately, the poor editing was very distracting, with the most common problem being missing words. The content, however, was very helpful to me and I plan to reread it soon and work through the sections again as I have just bought a horse.
