What are you afraid of?

In Fear Itself, Pulitzer-nominated science author Rush W. Dozier, Jr., takes on such challenging questions as: What is fear? Where does it originate? What purpose does it serve? He reveals how our daily lives are shaped by fear, and yet, how it also pushes us to fulfill our greatest potential. Succeeding in making complicated points of modern neuroscience both accessible and fascinating, Dozier takes us on a thriling journey through the science of the brain and the everyday reality of this most human emotion.
