I recommend it highly to anyone who wants to achieve his or her best."

Dr. Silverman draws on a powerful combination of scientific research, clinical experience, and personal insights to show you how to uncover your true desires, face your fears, and get what you want out of life."

—CECELIA PLEVA, casting director, Late Night with Conan O'Brien

Do you sometimes wonder whether the only thing standing between you and your dreams is you? In this groundbreaking book, psychologist and brain researcher Michael Silverman introduces a practical three-step program to help you confront your fears head-on by asking the tough questions about who you really are, what you’re afraid of, and what you really want. He then shows you how to identify your own dreams, target the underlying ambivalence that may be holding you back, and conquer the fears you must overcome to realize your true destiny.
