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. -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. -Howland- -Posted On Amazon
Easy to read
This book is very easy to read. It provides some strategies to deal with fear. It also illustrates some case studies which help readers to easily understand and practice. -Cindy From Canada - Posted On Amazon

A very good, clear read and the book can keep being referred to……………..I thought this book was very good. It was clear, concise and gave ways to manage fear and anxiety on a daily basis. The concepts, tools and techniques are not tricky and are very do-able. As a Christian, it was wonderful to read a book that combines counseling and coaching techniques with having a reliance on God. The book is not 'preachy', in fact I have just recommended it to a friend. --J. Butter- Posted On Amazon
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.
