Julien Smith has delivered a surprise, a confrontation, a book that will push you, scare you and possibly stick with you for years to come.
The idea is simple: your flinch mechanism can save your life. It shortcircuits the conscious mind and allows you to pull back and avoid danger faster than you can even imagine it’s there.
But what if danger is exactly what you need?
What if facing the flinch is the one best way to get what you want?
Here’s a chance to read the book everyone will be talking about, before they do.
What are you afraid of? Here's how to find out.
