Fear, the most powerful force in our life, is the least understood. Every one of us experiences it. Many arrange their lives to avoid it. Yet nearly every one of us needs to find more fear. Most of us know fear as the unwanted force that drives phobias, anxieties, unhappiness, and inhibits self-actualization. Ironically, fear is the underlying phenomenon that heightens ...more

Surprised at the readability; I thought it might be more scientific, but each premise and point is wrapped around either the author's story or someone else's - from Sarah Silverman to the Wright Brother's main rival.

For the author - this would be great in audible, too

I want everyone to realize that all your dreams are on the other side of fear - so face it and use it to get to that wonderful place. When we all have the courage to use our fears as
