“The big wins and most incredible experiences come when we feel afraid but do it anyway. Read Mastering Fear, get out of your comfort zone, and dance with your fear, knowing it will lead you to new levels of performance!”
—Siri Lindley, former triathlon world champion, coach, and author of Surfacing
“My favorite part of this book is that Brandon doesn't teach you to conquer fear as if it will go away completely and forever. No, as a Navy Seal, he knows there's always an element of fear in the things we do. Instead, we master it, fully aware that it is coming and ready when it does. I wish someone gave me this book when I graduated from college.”
—Jon Acuff, author of Finish
“When you’ve got a hockey puck flying at you at 105 miles per hour, you don’t have time for theory. It’s the same when life is flying at you. You need to know what to do with the gut-ripping terror that grabs at you—and you need to know it from a guy who’s been there. Brandon is that dude: he’s the real deal. Read, learn, and excel.”
—Brent Burns, all-star ice hockey defenseman for the San Jose Sharks
“Brandon’s book will help you conquer anything holding you back from being your best and most unafraid self. A life-changer!”
—Betsy Morgan, former CEO, Huffington Post; former president, TheBlaze
“Understanding fear is a crucial part of success, and I cannot imagine a more qualified person to tackle it. Brandon’s inspirational style of writing leaps me into action chapter by chapter. Thank you for such a practical breakdown of this important human condition.”
—Sally Lyndley, editor, Love magazine
"Not only will this book provide you with a brilliantly simple plan for conquering your deepest fears, but it will also leave you with a burning desire to do it. What previously seemed impossible will suddenly appear entirely tangible. "
—Marina Khoroch, writer for Vogue.com

UPDATE: Yes, this worked and I am forever grateful to the author for the inspiration. I've bought multiple copies of this as gifts and I will be writing Webb a thank you letter.
“Mastering fear is not about becoming physically stronger, or tougher, or more macho, or more aggressive, or more stoic, or more pumped up. It is about learning how to identify and change the conversation in your head.”
I read this book at the perfect time. I’d just left a secure career to take a big leap of faith. Everything in and around me said, “This doesn’t make any logical sense.” “You’re giving up security.” “You’re taking too big a chance.” “What if something happens and you can’t pay your bills?”
Brandon Webb’s “Mastering Fear” helped me push through my fears. If Navy Seals, world class entrepreneurs, best-selling authors, and successful VCs can be terrified, so can I.
In fact it’s wise. Fear—used right—is productive.
“Fear is a lot like fire. When it’s out of control, fire is destructive. Learn how to use it, and you can do practically anything.”
This book left me with no excuses. It was an excellent followup to “Total Focus,” carrying some of those same themes through to this particular challenge many of us have. Brandon is an excellent teacher.
“Mastering Fear” made me feel I was in the same camp as some impressive people, reminding me there is no finish line… we get further along in the journey by doing two things: mastering our fears, then deciding to put one foot in front of the other every single day.
Another thing I liked a lot, is that the author writes in a manner that makes you feel like he is writing directly to you, as a good old friend would.
