The Fear Project was truly a pleasure to read. Part personal story, part investigation into the phenomenon of fear, the book gives just enough of the former to keep it interesting and relatable and just enough of the latter to teach you a little something as you read. And even though Yogis frames much of the book through surfing, which he adores, it was the universality of fear that struck me: the mental processes surrounding it, the way it manifests, the patterns it drags us into. I’ve never been on a surfboard, but I had no trouble feeling like I understood what Yogis was talking about. Definitely worth the read! ( )
