What are we afraid of and what can we do about it? Fear - of change, of intimacy, of loss, of the unknown - has become a corrosive influence in modern life, eroding our ability to think clearly. Exploited for power by politicians and for money by the media, it has become embedded in the way we think about our lives.
Overcoming our fear, says Gordon Livingston, constitutes the most difficult struggle we face. Dr. Livingston, a psychiatrist, has increasingly found himself prescribing virtues like courage to his patients instead of tranquilizers or antidepressants.
Here, he presents us with thirty truths that tell us all what we need to do in order to develop personal virtues in the face of societal - and our own individual - fears. And he does this with the crystalline prose and leavening wit that have made him an internationally best-selling author.

Not enough new content from his other books
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
If you've read any other of Gordon Livingston's other books (I've read three) then this was just a re-hash, sadly. When he got to an example (again) of the way that the US treat their troops in airports - which he does twice in this book - I felt like it was on loop.
I really adore his books, but their needs to be new content.
