On Becoming Fearless
By Arianna Huffington
Reviewed by Angela Evans - September 28, 2006
If you are looking for a short, pithy, motivational speech about overcoming your fears, On Becoming Fearless is the book for you. Written and read by Arianna Huffington, this short book offers practical advice on how to overcome your fears so that you can become more productive and happy in spheres of your life.
No matter what you fear - from what the future might hold to that spider lurking the corner, you will find numerous recommendations on the steps that you can take to overcome your specific fears and to help you remove yourself from fearful situations. While this book is targeted toward women, men will find that much of the advice that Huffington offers also applies to the male of the species.
In large measure, Huffington offers her advice by offering insights into her own life, the fears that she has faced over time, and how she learned to overcome them. As such, this book serves in part as a mini-biography of Huffington's life. However, the book, as a whole, is offered as an inspirational self-help guide. While much of the advice proffered by Huffington comes under the heading of common sense, her presentation and homily helps to drive her points home and to offer guidance on why all too many women allow fear to rule their lives - and why you should strive to be a fearless woman, and how you can encourage the women around you to do the same.
