This audiobook written and narrated by Dr. Emmett Miller, MD is recommended for those with fears, phobias and anxiety associated with specific events, animals, or objects; stage fright; performance anxiety; test anxiety; sexual inhibition associated with fear; procrastination related to fear of failure; fear of confrontation.
