Overcoming Fear

A Layman's Guide To Managing Fear
Author: Stanley Popovich
www.managingfear.com
Nonfiction: SELF HELP
ISBN: 1928602975 AND Rated: [G]

Review by Piers Watson, OCD Action, London England for Treble Heart BooksReview


This short booklet, published in the USA, is full of common-sense practical advice on techniques for coping with fear. As the title makes clear, it is very much a layperson's interpretation and explanation of the most commonly accepted methods of managing or overcoming fear, namely behaviour therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy (terms not used by Popovich). Effective use is made of examples to illustrate the choices we all face.

For some this booklet will be profoundly helpful. Everyone, however, whose life is crippled by fear, will find something useful here
