We all dread something; public speaking and heights are common fears. But what if you were terrified of both those, along with fainting, closed spaces, germs, vomiting and cheese. If the mere thought of all these things sent you into a panic, it would seem impossible to live a full and productive life.
But the new book “My Age of Anxiety” disproves that theory.
- Scott Stossel is the editor of The Atlantic magazine and the author of "My Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind."
Scott is facing his fear while he’s in town. He’s giving a talk at the Harvard Bookstore. The WGBH Forum Network is covering the event and will post video of it.
