"How the Fierce Handle Fear", is based on a group of author's point of views on how to deal with fear. Can I use this book in every day life? Will it help me in business; does the author discuss the spiritual aspects of fear? Will I come away with a sense that the book is well written, thought out, and I can use it as a guild to help family, friends, business acquaintances, young people, and myself? For the price, it was more than worth what I paid for it.

Setting Fear Aside by Valarie Davenport Willis was the chapter that I identified with more than another. She discussed losing her job, not that she was not "qualified or not being a team player", it's "the bottom lie", economics. She stated fear is invisible, it takes your energy, it stops you in your tracks, yet you cannot let fear rob you of your dreams. We all have dreams, we know that to achieve our dreams, sometimes, we have to walk through that dark valley, we know it as fear. We cannot touch it, but we feel it, it holds us sometimes like a vice.

Valarie goes on to tell you how friendships helped her to deal with her situation, loss of job, and what she was going to do. Slowly she started to move forward, after her pity-party, she began to do something every day, for example taking a walk. Having something definite to do. One of her girlfriends called every day to talk, and helped her realize what she wanted to do. Out of those early morning discussions came, her first book. She state some times you have to speak works out loud, into the brain, to let fear know, you are not owning it today.

She became a national keynote speaker for major organizations. These things would not have happen had Valarie not lost her position. Blessings come in many ways, after we subdue our fears, we are able to think clearly, and know we will survive and thrive.

The best book you can buy to show one how to overcome fear. The author uses simple words, I perfectly know this was intentionally thought so that it would be easy to understand by anyone. This book rocks.

The other reviews give valuable details of this volume so I'll simply add that this slim, accessable volume is full of insights that can be easily incorporated into your everyday life. The various sections give you inspirational messages and practical observations for managing the everyday fears, anxieties and crises that are part of everyone's life. Beyond the obvious high profile motivational contributors I found the "With Spirituality" section particularly interesting and the contribution by Arathi Rao, "Befriending God" so pertinent in our time. This is a great book to share with anyone you care enough about to help manage life's rough patches.

I really enjoyed this book and found it was particularly helpful, especially in a crowded market of self-help books. A few things really set it apart.

First, I loved that there were lots and lots of experts who contributed. I liked this for two main reasons. First, the many different perspectives were really valuable. If one person's story didn't resonate strongly with me, another two or three or four did. The editor really did a great job of gathering people as different as Jack Canfield and Donald Trump to contribute wonderful and diverse essays.

Secondly, I also really enjoy hearing successful people being honest about what has scared them or challenged them in the past. Unfortunately, I think a lot of modern media is either about trashing someone or glorifying them. I want to hear about -- and learn from -- the really human side of people's lives rather than just viewing celebrities from a pedestal or in the gutter. The book definitely made me feel that I wasn't alone in feeling afraid and powerless at times.

Finally, this was a really FUN read. It was breezy and fast without sacrificing real depth. The moderate length of the essays made them perfect for a busy person like myself, but again they were completely full of substance and heart. Almost all of them left me inspired.

I heartily recommend this book. Not only will you enjoy it, you will also learn from it too. To borrow from the title, it's not just FUN -- it's truly FIERCE!

After sampling the book using Amazon's "Look Inside" feature, I realized that this is a promotional tool for various professional speakers, business trainers, self-help authors, and life coaches.

Then I saw that the author runs the "The Done For You Writing & Publishing Company" which helps "speakers, entrepreneurs and small business owners to write and publish books to promote their businesses."

Doesn't necessarily make this a bad book - but you should be aware of the book's objective.
