What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
First she starts off with a drawn out play-by-play of her own experience of being mugged. Then the first part of her book is slamming statistics of how "anxiety and fear actually kills people." It made me have a great deal of anxiety just by listening to the data. But I'm a fan of Rankin, so I kept listening even though I wanted to stop. Then it got better, more positive. And then midway through her book, she started talking about supernatural experiences that she and others has had. It was creepy... I like to listen to these books before bed in a dark room. With all of the scary information, I just can't listen without getting spooked.
Has The Fear Cure turned you off from other books in this genre?
I think she has good intentions in writing this book, but she gives out these death stats, gruesome stories, supernatural experiences and says, "But don't these things help cure your fears?" And I'm thinking, "No, it just gives me more anxiety and stresses me out!"
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Fear Cure?
I feel this book is hot and cold. In one section, it's scaring me out, then the next she's positive and reassuring, then it's scary again... It doesn't seem to be consistent. I really wanted to like this book...

If you could sum up The Fear Cure in three words, what would they be?
Inspirational. Motivating. Amazing.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Have you listened to any of Jenn Morris’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I have not listened to Jenn Morris before but she does a fantastic job here voicing Lissa Rankin's words. I have heard Lissa Rankin narrate and I was disappointed that she didn't narrate her own book this time. However I do feel that Jenn Morris matches Lissa's reassuring, empathetic tone.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was inspired and motivated through out this amazing book. If you suffer from any kind of illness or are just feeling stuck in your life I would highly recommend Lissa's book. I think it is far better than her first book 'Mind Over Medicine'. It brings together lots of ideas in a really accessible way. It will definitely be a 'self help' book that I follow through on and return to.
Any additional comments?
One of my all time favourite self help books. Highly recommended

This is a powerful book I really enjoyed it and intend to listen again and implement xx
She actually tells people to believe in a higher power because it will be helpful for them.
Chapter 23 was very difficult to sit through.
Having something that you can put into action and get results is the best ending of what I had hoped would be . Then being able to share with others who struggle with the same is a great thing
