A great great book
First let me clarify that this is a Buddhist book filled with the teachings of the Buddha ... i am not a Buddhist yet i found it extremely helpful ... it's kind of a next step after one digs deep into one's self (introspection work) ... it helps with getting over the pain and suffering (after being acknowledged and experienced that is )
I found it much more "REAL" than the self -help books that usually left me lost and frustrated ... i highly recommended
note: the narration was excellent

Here Comes The Dark Side!
Thinking you need a pill, drink, smoke or other distraction to get you through? Listen to Thay as you freak out, because freaking out from fear is what we do. We are all one when it comes to fear. Let us sit together and rest under the Tree of mindfulness with Thay to encounter our fear as precious human beings.

Clinging to the monk
Would you listen to Fear again? Why?
yes, the content is vast
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The narrator is good however, much can be learned through listening to the sound of Thich Nhat Hanhs voice.

Incredibly insightful and transformative
Thich Nhat Hanh reveals how important mindfulness practice is for cultivating joy and happiness. When we don't practice mindfulness, we suffer - we are afraid and we disconnect from others. When we understand what is causing our emotions, such as our anger and fear, we can better understand ourselves and others. He also highlights how important it is to model mindfulness practice for our children and others that interact with us in our day-to-day lives. He is the best teacher of all because he teaches us to find the teacher within.
