Unhappiness, says bestselling author Harriet Lerner, is fueled by three key emotions: anxiety, fear, and shame. They are the uninvited guests in our lives. When tragedy or hardship hits, they may become our constant companions. Anxiety can wash over us like a tidal wave or operate as a silent thrum under the surface of our daily lives. No one signs up for anxiety, fear, and shame, but we can't avoid them either. As we learn to respond to these three key emotions in new ways, we can live more fully in the present and move into the future with courage, clarity, humor, and hope. Fear and Other Uninvited Guests shows us how.

No one signs up for anxiety, fear, and shame, but we can’t avoid them either. The way out of fear has to be facing your fears and doing it scared!

There are nuggets of information that the r I always approach self help books with the best of intentions but find that I'm cynical after a handful of pages.

No one signs up for anxiety, fear, and shame but we can't avoid them either. Whether you suffer from the miserable symptoms of anxiety, or you push fear beneath the surface of your awareness, this book will help you live more fully in the present, and move into the future with courage, clarity, humor, and hope. With stories that are sometimes hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking, Lerner takes us from "fear lite" to the most difficult lessons the universe sends us.

This time Dr. Lerner has tackled fear, anxiety and shame and through numerous examples - both personal and anecdotal of other's experiences - has enabled the reader to feel understood, not pathologized but 'simply human'. I loved her blend of eastern mindfulness with western psychotherapy techniques.

This author puts herself out there and lets the reader know that she too experiences real fear - but there are ways to overcome that fear and anxiety . The book is a very fast read, with practical tips and suggestions, and humor. Yet, she is upfront in saying that there is no quick "cure" or fix for fear in one's life. The way out of fear has to be facing your fears and doing it scared! For anyone struggling with fear or anxiety, this is worth reading as a motivation to look at the area deeper and to at least begin the journey of dealing with fear in your life. For some, it will give you the courage to take more steps in overcoming fear in certain areas of your life.

Fear/anxiety feels terrible. And it's normal. And it's the repression of it that really hurts. How did I get to middle age without hearing this so clearly? Thanks to Harriet's clear and friendly writing, now I have.

Recommend by my doctor. Great tips for dealing with fear that triggers a depressive episode. No exercises except by example in the narrative. Read the first two chapters in the sample download. The rest of the book is less vanilla than chapter two and discuses tougher cases. Most of the cases are gender generic, but a few are more directed to females. I am male and still found the book informative and helpful.

An honest book that does not promise to heal you overnight by reading it.

This is an excellent book by dr. Harriet Lerner at that really helped me cope with a difficult person in my life.
I would definitely call it a lifesaver

This book was purchased by me for my daughter. I have read other books by Lerner, however, and I appreciate her writing style and her common-sense, easy-to-understand approach to dealing with the feelings, emotions, and problems we have in relationships.

While my specific fear was not addressed in much detail, I gained lots of insight about fear. I can use the anecdotes to read into my own situation. As with all issues if this sort, things usually work out better with a therapist to help you figure it out. Love all Lerner's books.

Lerner's books are an easy read and thought provoking.
I love it.... I continually read this book...... I forget... have to re read
