Shark-diving experts, police officers, professional athletes, and explorers all face dangerous and risky situations every day in their line of work, and yet they are able to face their fears and meet these challenges head-on. Accounts from “fear professionals” such as these are featured in this book to show readers how they too can harness their own fears and turn them into strengths. Each section contains direct quotes from a fear professional, a common fear myth, and a fear professional’s challenge to the myth, as well as short exercises to help readers apply what they have learned. The book acknowledges that everyone feels fear, but that there are ways to turn trepidation into an asset.
