Latest Liberation from the Lie Review

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful surprise – a new contribution to the literature on courage,May 4, 2009When I first saw the subtitle of “Liberation from the Lie,” I thought it was the usual hyperbole that authors put on book covers to sell books. But Eric Gross does a very creditable job of laying out a path for “cutting the roots of fear once and for all.” The exercises he prescribes will not be easy to do, but they can enhance awareness and mindfulness, and thus courage. Perhaps the greatest contribution this book makes is the construct of “the Wound” and “the Fear-Self” (caps in original). It is a useful way to avoid being crushed between the anvil of yesterday’s regrets and the hammer of tomorrow’s worries. I give it five stars – well worth reading and reflecting upon.
