Book Review: Extreme Fear, Jeff Wise

May 5, 2012

This excellent non-fiction book covers the psychology and physiology of fear. It explains science with interesting examples and anecdotes. The book is quite short at just over 200 pages, so it is a quick read.

I really enjoyed the description of the pilot who saved himself even though he had a broken wing with his experience, knowledge and ability. It was a superb story to highlight much of the overall topic, an amazing survival story. There were several other stories just as interesting, like the lady who survived being attacked by a lion.

The style of writing is fluid and easy to read. The pace and layout of the book is great. There was enough of the science to get a feel for what was going on, but not too much to bog the book down in technical detail. I could have read much more, but the book felt complete as it was.
