Review: Wish I Could Be There: Notes From a Phobic Life

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

I had hoped for better. I also love phobias. I did learn some stuff I did not know, but this seemed more like a school book with a teeny bit of memoir mixed in. It might be more interesting if I knew who William Shawn was. Read full review
