This is a fantastic book - it really lifts you and puts things in to perspective. I wouldn't say it's about tackling fears necessarily, more about tackling and enjoying life (which I guess deals with fears). It's a great read and made me feel a whole lot better - it's one to keep by the bed and dip in to from time to time for a 'boost'. Well written, easy to understand without jargon. Highly recommended.

I must say I bought the book because of it's promising title. I normally read the content and some reviews before I get a book but this time I did not wanna wait. I had to buy it. And it was worth every penny! The writer is encouraging us (the reader) to take the risk and go for our dreams even if we are full of fear, anxiety and uncertainty. According to Susan if you do not try you will find yourself in the same unhappy situation in 20 years. And life will pass by. Opportunities will not always come and you have to keep your eyes open. You will defeat the fear if you face it. And you will be rewarded and live the life you always wanted. Many people are stuck because they are afraid to take the first step. If you are hesitating (fear) to make a decision which may help you to achieve your goal than this book is for you.

The answer to your problems lies in the title of this book itself - and some might say an obvious solution to one's fears, and simply put forward, and in some cases, this really does work!

There are so many books out there on this kind of subject, but as many of them; deal only with pretty 'common' scenarios. I suspect the authors of such books would simply say; 'but the same approach applies to all things'. However; on that I would not believe it to be strictly true; I can think of dozens of situations that people may find themselves in that simply cannot be compared with that of say, losing your job; worrying about public speaking, or how will you pay the next bill. Many people have very personal problems/issues which do not fall into any particular category but their own, and so whilst this book does have (though pretty obvious) a great approach, do not think that this will deal in any real detail with perhaps 'your' personal problem.

It is true to say that dealing with any frightening situation is made even more frightening by 'thinking' about it which can often result in our 'running away', and the concept or belief that says that the more frightening things we confront, the less frightening they become - or perhaps to use another term; the less frightening they 'feel', is not always the case. Some people never get used to doing those things we all dislike, and we all react differently, and so it's good to bear this in mind when purchasing this book, and that it is really just another 'analysis' from yet 'another' person, and in the end, it will be 'you' who in fact deals with it.

The author has a way of convincing you to believe that this is the way - and perhaps the only way of beating your fears - and it is one of the better books I have read on the subject, but as all books of its kind, tends to 'generalise' a little too much in some important areas.

I had heard of this book, of course, but never thought of reading it. I am glad I finally decided to give it a go on a short flight. Well, the book is somewhat about facing your fears, but it quickly transforms into something else - into a manual of how to live your life to the fullest. Mind you, less than 300 pages of the easy flowing text will not grand you some amazing insights, and the fact that this book was published over 20 years ago will make you feel (quite often) that you heard all of this before, some of the revealed truths are also known as common sense nowadays... But think for a second - in the Eighties these concept, I imagine, was quite fresh. Anyway, there are three lessons I took out (and a lot of notes):

1. Fear never disappears, as you grow and overcome your fears, the new ones are going to emerge - the bigger and bolder steps you take, the scarier the fear (excuse the pun), but you will know by then that this is just how progress in life works. Don't expect an easy ride - you will always have fears.
2. Always say thank you and make people feel appreciated. Sometimes it will be hard, sometimes easy. But you will see the difference. (I try to follow this advice since I flicked through The Secret Daily Teachings a few years ago, and if anything, it definitely makes YOU feel better.)
3. Do stuff for others. When doing something - don't expect anything in return. It's when you least expect it the return will come. (My favourite insight from this book.)

To sum up, this was the first "self-help" book which I finished, and it was time well spent. I think everybody could benefit from reading "Fell the fear and do it anyway" - you will definitely learn a few things form it, or at least be encouraged to take on your fears!

I'm dealing with some real turning points in my life at the moment so turned to this book as it was recommended to me by a friend. I have read other "self help" books and none have really resonated with me until I read this book! I have heard the saying often enough "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear" and low and behold I must be at the point now as with reading this book, everything which is said has sunk in and is really resonating with me now. Susan Jeffers easy style of writing feels like she is sitting in the room with me having a chat, no jargon, psychotherapy mumbo jumbo, just to the point and easy to understand. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, even if you are not going through any dramas or difficult situations in your life at the moment it is a great book just to read and get things into perspective and realign your mind to positive thinking, which we all need once in awhile. Ironically as I was reading this book, I thought of the above quote to myself about the student and teacher, and low and behold, I turned the page and which quote appeared? Yep, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear" I kid you not, so not only am I ready to make changes in my life, but I truly believe Susan Jeffers is my new teacher. This book will definitely take pride of place on top of my reading pile as now I have read it, it will definitely be a book that I will go back to time and again to help me through difficult times.
