"Finally, a brilliant teacher from the medical community takes a hard look at the omnipresence of fear in our culture as a major cause of illness in our contemporary world, while simultaneously offering a plethora of highly specific suggestions for eradicating this 'disease producing mindset.' I love the exceptionally honest and personal approach that Dr. Rankin provides throughout the pages of this powerful book. Fear is much more than the scary feeling you experience inside when you get too close to the edge of the cliff, it is a way of living in which your subconscious mind is being programmed from your earliest years to avoid any and all risks. This programming invites sickness not only of the body, but the mind, and especially the soul. My friend Lissa Rankin has created a book that will show you how to cultivate the courage to live life fearlessly. It is medicine for the soul as well as the body. I love love love this book."
-- Dr.Wayne W. Dyer, "New York Times" best-selling author of "I Can See Clearly Now" and "The Power of Intention"
"If you're haunted by fear or anxiety and want an energetic, vigilant, and encouraging friend to calm you down, carry around a copy of "The Fear Cure." Dr. Lissa Rankin has been to the dark places where your fear may take you, and emerged not only unscathed, but filled with advice and prescriptions to bring others into peace. Part reporter, part scientist, part mystic, and always full of compassion, Lissa will help you find the part of your own being that is never afraid. "The Fear Cure" can teach you how to release the fears that may limit your joy, and give control of your life to your calmest, wisest self."
-- Martha Beck, Ph.D., "New York Times" best-selling author of "Finding Your Way in a Wild New World"
"Just as hunger will lead you to find nourishment, fear can lead you to nourish your life. We are all capable of doing this, but without guidance and someone who believes in us, it is hard to do. Lissa Rankin's book can make the difference. Read it and incorporate its wisdom into your life."
-- Bernie Siegel, M.D., "New York Times" best-selling author of "Love, Medicine & Miracles, Faith, Hope & Healing, " and "The Art of Healing"
"Nature has endowed us with healthy fears--the lion in the bush--but most fears in modern life are destructive and prevent us from achieving our greatest potential. In "The Fear Cure, " Dr. Lissa Rankin analyzes the fears that hold us back and how to rise above them. She reveals how most fears are of our own making, and how to unmake them. This book is wonderfully up close and personal, because Rankin's advice has been put to the test in the crucible of her own life."
-- Larry Dossey, M.D., "New York Times" best-selling author of "One Mind"
"The lives of a vast majority of humans are stressed with a panoply of psychological fears: fear of loneliness, fear of failure, fear of disease, and fear of judgment, among others. These chronic fears, which result in stress that undermines health and leads to disease and death, are responsible for up to 90 percent of all doctor visits. A valuable palliative to combat debilitating stress is provided in Dr. Lissa Rankin's new book, "The Fear Cure." This empowering compendium on the psychobiological impacts of fear offers highly effective personal management techniques to shift consciousness and transform chronic fear into health-enhancing behavior. For the health of civilization, I highly recommend Dr. Rankin's prescription for a positive drug-free healing experience that enhances intuition, integrity, and joy in life."
-- Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., cell biologist, best-selling author of "The Biology of Belief" and "The Honeymoon Effect" and co-author of "Spontaneous Evolution"
"An important book. It will change your life, as it changes the definitions of fear and courage. Learn to live. Learn to trust. Read this book."
-- Sophy Burnham, "New York Times" best-selling author of "A Book of Angels"
"In a world fraught with risk and uncertainty, we could all use more courage. Dr. Lissa Rankin is the ideal guide--and this book is your anti-fear field manual."
-- Chris Guillebeau, "New York Times" best-selling author of "The $100 Startup" and "The Happiness of Pursuit"
"Dr. Lissa Rankin's book "The Fear Cure" is just that, and more. This superb book shows you how to shift and transform your beliefs about your fears into new beliefs about your abilities to really feel your courage. You can then significantly expand and multiply your experiences of well BE-ing, grace, and goodness in every area of your life."
-- SARK (aka Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy), artist and author of "Glad No Matter What"
"From the first page of "The Fear Cure" I was drawn in, captivated by a subject matter that is so appropriate today. It seems that at every turn some aspect of our inner or outer world cries: 'Fear, fear, fear!' It is like the boy who cried wolf. Is there really a wolf? Or is it an illusion In "The Fear Cure, " Dr. Lissa Rankin teaches us how to face our fear and shows us how to get to courage. Can you take the worst things that have ever happened to you and transform them into the best things that have ever happened to you? Dr. Lissa Rankin says 'Yes!!' and then beautifully illuminates the path."
-- David Wolfe, author of "Longevity Now, Superfoods, " and "The Color Cure" and founder of the nonprofit www.ftpf.org

Also, it seems like she misunderstood her target audience. This book could have been split in two. I'm not sure why she ever thought it would be valuable to devote a huge chuck of the beginning of the book telling multiple stories about how people have literally dropped dead and gotten seriously ill due to fear. People who struggle with anxiety and fear (presumably those interested by the title of this book) DO NOT need to flood their consciousness with stories and stats like that. We know full well that fear wreaks havoc on our bodies. Her logic for including it was almost laughable. That type of writing may have been more helpful or useful for doctors, or for people who don't actually struggle with fear, but care about people who do, and want to cultivate some understanding and compassion. Just saying.
I'm about to leave this book in the free little library on my street corner and forget it. As another reviewer said, I wouldn't even think about giving it to a friend.
