“Easy To Read And Informative.” A Layman’s Guide to Fear does a great job summarizing a variety of useful approaches to managing fear in our everyday lives. It offers a summary of approaches that are used in psychotherapy and provides great examples to illustrate the points he is making. The examples he uses are ones that we can all relate to and illustrate common struggles. This is a great book to start to get an understanding on how to work through fear. It is easy to read and informative; I would recommend it to helping professionals and layman.
