This book deals so eloquently with the fear that each of us faces, in the most human, meaningful way. It has helped me face the vulnerability we all share. It is written in such a thoughtful, honest, personal way. I keep it by my bedside and have reread several of the chapters again and again. I have bought several copies for friends who are also very moved by
Bonney and Richard Schaub's insights.

It pains me to write this review. I forget the path that led me to this book, but the blurbs and the 5-star reviews suckered me into buying it. The premise of this book: if you accept the vulnerability inherent in our brief and transient lives, the door will be opened for unconditional love. This may sound nice, but the authors provide nothing beyond a few anecdotes to support their claim. Nor is there anything original here. If you know anything about Buddhism, you don't need this book. In my own experience, I arrived at this vulnerability through the study of evolution and cosmology, and it cast me into a deep, cosmic sadness. Ooops.

I admit to annoyance when I read ideas that are just tossed out as if they are self-evident, or presented as if they are new. So this book doubly annoyed me. Nothing about how this transition from vulnerability to unconditional love might actually occur. I suppose I could replicate the authors' experience of getting caught out on a lake in a storm. Oh wait. That happened to me too. No unconditional love though. They never even made much of an attempt to define such an ambiguous term.

So this book just didn't work for me at all. Something (?) gave me high hopes, but the lack of substance in the book was a real letdown.

This book simply and elegantly goes right to the source of our human fear and vulnerabilty. With warmth and great humanity the personal story telling opens the heart. In reading this book I was reminded that our life stories are healing stories.

In a gentle yet profound manner, Richard and Bonney Schaub get right at the essence of human vulnerability and guide you through the human condition in a way that is both liberating and empowering. The personal, accessible style leads to the heart of one's humanity, dissolving fear into the possibility of peace.

I marked this down 2 stars because I felt the actual book you get is not what's in the summary on the page where you buy it. It sounded more like a book based on psychology with a little spiritualism worked into the end of the book, but the book is permeated with spiritualism.

If you are into spiritualism, this may be an excellent book for you. If you are not, or prescribe to some other belief system, you will likely have a hard time enjoying this books constant use of spiritualism.

I wanted to try to check out a book from my library's digital library to see how the process worked. They didn't have many good selections but I saw that The End of Fear had gotten good reviews on Amazon and decided to check it out.

This book has been truly transformational for me. I think if I had found it earlier on my spiritual path, it wouldn't have been quite so helpful, as, in a way, it is quite nuanced. There is information between the lines since the authors are describing things that are beyond words. But combining my experience with their words, I have found a lot of value in this book. They way they describe things is so spot on. It is the first book that has described certain experiences that I have had to a T. For instance, this excerpt:

"For many people, the end of summer is just the start of autumn, but for the sensitive ones it brings a melancholy as the light and the heat give way to cooler days and earlier dark; the passing of the season touches in them an awareness of the passing of time and the inevitable ending of things. This kind of melancholy is not depression, but a deep movement of feeling that is distinct beyond words."

And I like that the authors . I'm not sure why this book is not more popular.
