Overview

Why are we afraid? Why do we dwell on worst-case scenarios, lie awake in anxietyt's grip, and react to minor mishaps as thought they threaten our very survival? Chances are you don't envision the world's or your own catastrophic end on a daily basis; however, we are all routinely altered by fear-from simply feeling nervous about a new experience to repeatedly rethinking a critical Comment.

In the End of Fear, Richard and Boney Schaub explore the origin of fear down to its root and posit that it grows out of our innate love of life. They teach that fear is so influential because deep down we know that our life is unpredictable and that we are all vulnerable; we risk change and loss at every moment Using examples from their lives and those of their patient, the Schaubs draw upon their 30 years of experience as psychotherapists to explore the common methods people turn to in order to cope with their basic vulnerability. Once we stop fleeing from or fighting fear and instead face it with compassion, we'll be free to realize and achieve our full potential for peace, joy, and love.
