You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. (Eleanor Roosevelt)

What are we afraid of and what can we do about it? Fear - of change, of intimacy, of loss, of the unknown - has become a corrosive influence in modern life, eroding our ability to think clearly. Exploited for power by politicians and for money by the media, it has become embedded in the way we think about our lives.

Overcoming our fear, says Gordon Livingston, constitutes the most difficult struggle we face. Dr. Livingston, a psychiatrist, has increasingly found himself prescribing virtues like courage to his patients instead of tranquilizers or antidepressants.

Here, he presents us with thirty truths that tell us all what we need to do in order to develop personal virtues in the face of societal - and our own individual - fears. And he does this with the crystalline prose and leavening wit that have made him an internationally best-selling author.

    " I didn't find this overly helpful. A lot of it seemed trite and like I had heard and/or read it many times before. No really concrete methods to help with fear. "
