Overview

The Thing You Think You Cannot Do: Thirty Truths about Fear and Courage by Gordon Livingston


Fear—of change, of intimacy, of loss, of the unknown—has become a corrosive influence in modern life, eroding our ability to think clearly. Overcoming our fear, says Dr. Gordon Livingston, constitutes the most difficult struggle we face. Dr. Livingston has increasingly found himself prescribing virtues like courage to his patients instead of antidepressants. Now he tells us what we need to do to develop personal virtues in the face of societal and individual fears. He does all this with the crystalline prose and leavening wit that have made him an internationally bestselling author.

So sad...I purchased two copies of this book (for my friend and for me) based upon the promise on the cover "you'll develop the courage to overcome everyday problems and extraordinary hardship." By Page 89 I closed the book and decided to pray for Dr. Livingston. I was expecting to read a book of hope and inspiration and instead I was presented with cynicism and hopelessness. Dr. Livingston is anti-government, anti-faith, anti-family (if they are too large) and the list goes on and on. Such a depressing read....

This book was a disappointment compared to his other books. I thought there would be pearls of wisdom and inspiration. What I found was an angry man's opinion on the government, Viet Nam, the military, wars, religion, the death of his six year old... I finished reading the book and felt empathy for Dr. Livingston and the difficulties he, or anyone for that matter, faces in life.
