A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear is a Quick, Effective Read
A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear does a good job of covering some methods and ideas that can help an individual manage their fear. While this book is no substitute for a mental health professional, as the author clearly states, I believe that it can be effective in helping individuals manage mild to moderate fear.
Mr. Popovich provides a great starting set of ideas for managing fear, many of which can be expanded further or modified easily to meet the needs of the individual. There are enough ideas in here that nearly everyone should be able to find something that works for them.
I would have found a chapter about the psychology of fear helpful in understanding how fears are created and how they can have an effect on the mind, but overall, I think that this book does a very good job of providing some quick, easy ways to get a grasp on your fears and preventing them from becoming crippling. If you are dealing with mild to moderate fear, I would recommend giving this book a try and seeing if you can find a way to help yourself.

A Three-Faceted Approach
Mr. Popovich's publication is a brief and practical one, especially for people who lean toward religious practice. He recommends utilizing Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) techniques, a "non-resistance" approach of allowing the feelings to come and working with them, and the power of prayer and scripture, using passages from the Bible. It is simple and concise approach that should prove practical for believers and non-believers alike.
