The Fear Project–Now Available for Pre-Order

The latest book from Jaimal Yogis, author of the precious Saltwater Buddha, is now available for pre-order.

“Like a mammoth wave moving across the ocean, The Fear Project takes us on a wild ride into the heart of our deepest primordial fears and onto the shores of light.” –Stuart Coleman, author ofEddie Would Go and Fierce Heart

What will everyone think? What if I’m alone? What if it kills me?

Following a confidence-rattling heartbreak, award-winning journalist Jaimal Yogis sets out to understand why fear so often dominates our lives. The provocative, entertaining, often laugh-out-loud story follows Yogis as he navigates his own fears, from the monsters under his childhood bed to his personal quest to surf bigger and more difficult waves, culminating in northern California’s Mavericks—huge, crushing (and sometimes deadly) waves in the dead of winter. The Fear Project explores the complicated spectrum of why we feel afraid: fear of loss, fear of not being good enough, fear of being alone, fear of being trapped in the wrong job, fear of not being able to realize your dreams, and, ultimately, fear of death. Yogis takes readers on a memorable and harrowing journey as he seeks answers from neuroscientists, meditation teachers, great white shark divers, psychologists, and elite athletes. It’s through understanding fear’s many facets — and learning how to act in spite of paralyzing nerves — that Yogis learns how we can all unlock a sense of renewed possibility and a more rewarding life.

I’ve pre-ordered a bunch of copies from my local indie bookseller because who couldn’t use a little less fear in their lives? Order your copies from B&NIndieboundAmazon.
