“Here’s what I like about Stanley Popovich’s book about fear: It’s to the point, it gives practical suggestions, and it has a sweet undertone. Stan gives examples of how people struggle with fear and what they can do. The book over all is very well written. As an addiction counselor for over 20 years, I’m always on the lookout for ways to help clients shift anxiety and addictive coping.” — Lynn Telford-Sahl
“I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. If you are looking for some ideas to help you combat your fear, it will not take long for you to find them in this book. You don’t have to weed through a ton of ancillary information to get to the point. Refreshing!” –Karen
“Mr. Popovich’s book offers practical advice, lay person to lay person, about the power of fear and offers suggestions for overcoming them–or at least not allowing them to control one’s life. It is a practical guide that offers common sense advice that anyone can use, but offering affirmation to the fearful about the realities of fear. It provides a support to those who are fearful of their fears or fearful of admitting them.” –Tess Lynn
