Beyond Fear (2nd Edition)

Second Edition - September 2002

First published in 1987, Beyond Fear has changed the lives of thousands of people. In this second edition, the renowned psychologist Dorothy Rowe examines the changes in the psychiatric system since 1987 in the context of showing how most of our suffering comes from our greatest fear, that of being annihilated as a person, when we shall disappear like a puff of smoke in the wind, never to have existed.

feel this fear whenever others humiliate or belittle us, or whenever we discover a serious discrepancy between what we thought our life was and what it actually is. The greater our fear, the more desperate our defence against it, the most desperate of defences being what psychiatrists call mental disorders. Yet, by knowing ourselves we can go beyond our fear and face life with courage.

"Dorothy Rowe’s is the calm voice of reason in an increasingly mad world".
Sue Townsend
