5.0 out of 5 stars Fear: The Friend of Exceptional People, 21 Dec 2005
This review is from: Fear: The Friend of Exceptional People - Techniques in Controlling Fear (Hardcover)
Another practical common sense book by Geoff!
This book will highlight, in simple terms, why we get 'the fear', how we can can control it and use it to advance ourselves. This is not just a martial artist's book! It has good solid advice and ideas, that you can apply to other areas of every day life. I have you used it to help me progress, from being apprehensive of talking to strangers, to being able to give a talk in public.
This is a really good book to read, if your like the rest of us and have a fear you want to tackle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding to read, a suprising experience, 11 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Fear: The Friend of Exceptional People - Techniques in Controlling Fear (Hardcover)
When you pick up this book, you expect fear to be the most frightening of all things. Like standing in the street being threatend. Well Geoff has a unique gift of putting fear into a different context. A fear of success is one but a few. The actual succession of what you wish to complete is fear of leaving people behing in your life. Geoff opens your eyes into the outside world, and the only way to succeed fear, is to face fear. What a brilliant read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fear and you, 25 July 2012

This review is from: Fear: The Friend of Exceptional People - Techniques in Controlling Fear (Hardcover)
Good book, I've a lot of time for Geoff Thompson, his experience of human nature in his previous life as a bouncer has taught him a lot about human nature. He used much of what he learned to change his life and become a successful author. He believes that in understanding our fears we can make them work for us and change our lives as he did. A book based on a different look at life from the usual self improvement documents. He sets out the idea of a fear pyramid, enabling you build a group fears you need to conquer in an escalating manner.

I don't a hundred per cent agree with his views about the need for a pre-emptive attack and would only consider it if I was certain that violence was inevitable. In this book you can learn about the way fear causes changes in your body and mind and how you can handle them better if you understand them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutley Brilliant!, 25 Mar 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Fear: The Friend of Exceptional People - Techniques in Controlling Fear (Hardcover)
This book is fantastic! I have bought many self-help books but this is by far the best as it deals with the most fearful of all things which all self-help books avoid and that is confrontation. It agrees with 'FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY' by Susan Jeffers, about overcoming fear by re-educating the mind on what fear is, and how it will never go away, but how you get rid of fear of particular situations. It tells the reader to simply accept fear and how to control the flow of adrenaline when a confrontation occurs in a fight. As a person who regularly goes out late at night and gets confronted this book has totally changed my life. It will work straight away even before you finish the book! Geoof has an enourmous amount of knwledge on how the mind works and the body. This book is ideal for anyone to build up more courage, self-confidence, self-esteem, ability to handle your self in a confrontation and overcoming any fear in your life. Very inspiring stuff, just get it, and after reading for 10 minutes you will actually want to get in a fight!
