A journey through what makes human beings afraid, into a new relationship with our fears
In" Fear: Understanding and Accepting the Insecurities of Life, "Osho takes the reader step by step over the range of what makes human beings afraid from the reflexive "fight or flight" response to physical danger to the rational and irrational fears of the mind and its psychology. Only by bringing the light of understanding into fear's dark corners, he says, airing out closets and opening windows, and looking under the bed to see if a monster is really living there, can we begin to venture outside the boundaries of our comfort zone and learn to live with, and even enjoy, the fundamental insecurity of being alive.
"Fear" ends with a series of meditation experiments designed to help readers experience a new relationship with fear and to begin to see fears not as stumbling blocks, but as stepping stones to greater self-awareness and trust."
OSHO is one of the most provocative and inspiring spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. He is known for his revolutionary contributions to the science of inner transformation, and the influence of his teachings continues to grow, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Osho does bring multiple valuable truths about what Fear really is, but hiw view of Life is quite drastic. The book basically tells you to drop all fears and live to the fullest (trully inspirationnal) and to enjoy only the present in every moment (from making love to looking at a flower, etc), but a bit too much, as thinking about the future and having ambition in life is not appreciating the present.
If you have read about the Jungian theory of the four masculine archétypes (King, Warrior, Magician, Lover), well Osho could be the definition of the Lover in its fullness. So it is a good book, but quite hard to agree on everything.
