GET THE FACTS BEHIND YOUR FEARS-AND DISCOVER…
HOW RISKY IS IT, REALLY?
World-renowned risk expert David Ropeik takes an in-depth look at our most common anxieties-from the real dangers we face every day to the irrational fears that give us nightmares. Exploring the psychological process of fear itself, this fascinating book shines new light on why we fear the things we fear-and how we can retrain our brains to conquer those fears: Calmly. Rationally. Intelligently. Once you understand what really drives your inner fears-and discover the facts behind such common fears as flying, bio-terrorism, and other perceived dangers-you can reduce the needless stress in your life, focus on the things that really matter, and live happily, peacefully…and courageously.
How Risky is it, Really? provides a simple step-by-step plan so you can:
CONQUER YOUR FEARS before they conquer you.
EVALUATE RISK LEVELS of everyday dangers
CONTROL YOUR RESPONSE to possible threats
MAKE SMARTER CHOICES based on facts not fear
TEST YOUR OWN “RISK RESPONSE” IN DOZENS OF SELF-QUIZZES!
