Knowing that fear is bad for our physical and mental health is not news, but this is one of the first mainstream titles which looks more closely at fear, at how we experience it and what exactly it consists of. It then goes on to advise us how to shift our way of relating to fear and disquiet in all their different forms. Lissa Rankin is a physician and the best-selling author of Mind Over Medicine, but she is also loyal to her intuitive and spiritual side, thus she comes across as the perfect guide to this tricky territory. The account is richly leavened with personal stories and anecdotes about people she has treated, and it’s the perfect combination of tried and tested medical information together with a more comforting spiritual viewpoint.
