"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 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," said by ----Steve--Posted On Amazon


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,"

A good summary of fear management techniques and resources....
A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear is a good summary of techniques and resources in managing one's fears. This booklet is written in a clear concise style with plenty of good case studies used as examples of how the techniques are to be applied. There is a contact list of help organizations included in the book as well as a list of Bible verses dealing with comfort and faith. The book is not long enough to provide detailed help, but its conciseness is useful as a quick summary to help the reader get started on how to approach his fears. Anyone struggling with anxiety, obsessive worry, and neutralizing concerns will be helped by this work. Though this work is not designed to replace a counselor, applying its principles can help one get back on track with one's life.
