The End of Fear
Why are we afraid? Why do we dwell on worst-case scenarios, lie awake in anxiety’s grip, and react to minor mishaps as though they threaten our very survival? In The End of Fear, Richard and Bonney Schaub explore the origin of fear and posit that the root of fear is "the love of life." They claim that fear engulfs us because we know that life is unpredictable and that we are all ultimately vulnerable; we risk change and loss at every moment. No special religion grants any exemption, and no amount of money or status can change this fact of life. Using examples from their lives and those of their patients, Richard and Bonney draw upon their 30 years of experience as psychotherapists to lay out a plan that will help you change your perspective and transform fear. Once you stop fleeing it or fighting it and face it with compassion, fear will no longer erode your confidence and undermine your experience of life; you’ll be free to realize more and more fully your potential for peace, joy, and love.
