Publisher's Summary

Without fear, we are able to see more clearly our connections to others. Without fear, we have more room for understanding and compassion. Without fear, we are truly free.
Most of us live in a constant state of fear - of our past, of illness and aging and death, and of losing the things we treasure most. But it doesn't have to be this way, promises Zen master and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh.
Drawing on a lifetime of mindfulness in action, Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to use the practice of living in the present to acknowledge and embrace our fears, recognize their origins, and render them powerless. The world-renowned Zen teacher guides us through practical exercises for transforming fear into clarity. The worries of the past and the anxiety of the future disappear as we discover the power of the present moment. Not only are we are able to handle challenging emotions as they arise, but we can summon feelings of well-being and contentment, no matter what the unknown may bring.
Rooted in the moment, we have the capacity to restore balance and happiness and be present with what is beautiful and affirming inside us and around us, every day.

Why a narrator?

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, principally because of the narrator whose smooth delivery left me unmoved.

What could Thich Nhat Hanh have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I'd much rather listen to the author himself - even though his delivery can be difficult at times, it carries so much more than having someone else reading from a text.

Could you see Fear being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
