Fear No More!!!
I know everyone of us experiences some related form of fear and it is for that reason that this book should be a must have for your personal library. It covers almost every issue related to fear and incorporates Zen and Buddhist teachings in each of the principles. My usual problem with self help books are that sometimes they appear to be a bit too preachy but with Fearless, I found the material to be very easy to absorb and relatable. Dr. Shoshanna is a practicing psychologist and therapist for more than twenty years and her experience can be found throughout this book. One thing worth mentioning though is that the book doesn't not attempt to fool you by saying that you can completely get rid of your fear. On the contrary, the title is fear-less which suggests that the books seeks to help you firstly understand your fear and then manage it so that it will not take over your life.
Admittedly some of the information present in the book seems familiar and that's because we have probably read them in other self hep books. What appears to be different is the way in which the message is brought across. The lessons are well thought out and well presented and are as wise as the Buddhist and Zen teachings that are littered throughout the book.
I am by no means finished with this book. When I first read it, I did so from the frame of mind of a reviewer so my ability to completely absorb these principles was minim however I intend to read and re-read this book later on.
