"Fear is a mysterious and dark location for me. This book layouts a map to navigate the terrain and it creates a language to speak to the locals without energy-sapping and unpredictable wrong turns. Reading Dr Silver's book moved me from confused tourist to a fluent traveller.""The idea that fear is an honoured guest and that we are the host of our own party is profoundly useful. Leading above the line is about having the courage to make peace with all our internal voices and create from a place of power."
