    Popular author Taylor Clark draws on cutting-edge research in this enlightening exploration of stress—and how to tackle it constructively. Using such divergent examples as Russian sub commanders and game show contestants, Clark shows that most people experience stress the same way. Those who understand how to accept it without freezing can accomplish what needs to get done.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Nerve the most enjoyable?

    The author seamlessly integrates narrative story-telling with hard science and with personal experience. Very pleasing that the author avoids cliches in favor of thoughtful analysis.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not applicable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The contrast between those who freeze under pressure and those who manage their fear to perform regardless.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wanted a do-this-and-your-fears-will-be-cured. Alas, this is not what the book offers. Instead, the author delivers solid methods to channel fear (nerves) into creative rather than paralyzing effect.


    Any additional comments?

    Would recommend this audiobook to anyone who faces high-stress activities and has had a tendency to freeze (or flee) under pressure. The author clearly describes the mindset required to overcome these circumstances.
