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