  An excellent self help book in coping with your fears

| | See all Daniel1981's reviews (2)

Although it's easy to dismiss these kind of books as "airy fairy" and just a way to make easy money from people, this book delivers an honest and straightforward approach to dealing with your fears. It's a great book to either read cover-to-cover or just dip into every now and then. The advice and exercises given are simple to do and really do make perfect sense in what you're trying to achieve.

  Exceptional, Powerful, Witty and Life Changing

We experience fear every day of our lives, be it through worry or concern over the smallest thing to the biggest. People are paralysed by fear to the point of not only becoming static within their lives, but in some case even regressing to what they feel are 'safety zones' - that of no longer living but barely existing hour to hour, day to day. People no longer taking risks, no longer trying, no longer even caring. Feel the Fear was a book I bought many years ago whilst a student on a Counselling course - I remember scanning it quickly. However, after years of recommending it to almost everyone I came across, I thought, let me really read it. This was last year, 2008. I am glad I did, as Dr Jeffers candidly once again invited me to travel with her through the pages of the book on her journey through sometimes funny, sometimes quirky but mostly powerful, real life issues. She shows how after years of living a mediocre life, yet knowing there WAS more out there, she embarked on taking full an complete contol of her life and challenging, sometimes gentle, sometimes directly, all the significant people in her life. She shows how she slowly regained control of her life and began to reduce her anxiety and fear - tackling those periods of being frozen by fear, to feeling every last bit of it and doing what her heart called her to do! Dr Jeffers went from being a housewife taken pretty much for granted by her family, to the DR Jeffers who has sold millions of copies of her book that has helped so very many people. It is people like her who through their courage and strength, help us to become all that we are capable of becoming. This is an excellent book, easily written and accessible to academics and non academics alike. There is a life out there, grab it with both hands and LIVE. Feel the Fear, AND DO. IT. ANYWAY. God Bless.

  A very unique level of understanding towards life and "fear"

| | See all LottieA3's reviews (9)

I brought this book just the other day and have not been able to put it down.

Susan Jeffers approaches "fear" in a very unique and untouched way. She helps you to see that "fear" isn't something that will go away, in fact she says it generally never goes away. But you can handle it.

One of her famous quotes from the book is "I'll handle it" - which is a new way to approach your fears. Rather than saying "you'll do it later" or "you'll try it when you're ready"...instead she teaches you to deal with it - to "handle it".

I think whether you are depressed, have low self-esteem, are lonely, divorced, lost a loved one, have money problems, want to try something new - whatever it maybe, this book will really help you. With techniques and tasks and food for thought it will help you.

A very positive book!

  Fantastic Read

| | See all ALFACONCEPT's reviews (12)

This is one of the best books I have had the pleasure to own.

The way Susan writes makes you want to get up and do something, it even compelled me to start my own business.

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful lady. I have bought 4 copies for other people.

This book is uncomplicated, and easy to read, and I myself have read it a few times already, and keep it to hand whenever I am feeling scared, or lack confidence, or something sad happens. She empowers you to look at life differently. I have nearly all of her books and they are all equally wonderful.

  This book changed my life.

I heard someone mention this book in an interview, so I decided to pop into the local library and pick this book up.

It is well written and provides many examples on how to beat your fear for everday things.

Upon picking up this book, I've read it more than three times and even had to buy other books from this author.

This book changed my life and it can change yours.
