BOOKS: Fears of Your Life

I've never met author Michael Bernard Loggins, but I already feel like we have a lot in common.

First, we both like lists. Second, we're afraid of pretty much exactly the same things. So I discovered when I checked out his book Fears of Your Life, which you can bet your sweet ass I'm ordering right now. (Go here to browse through the book yourself using Amazon's "Surprise Me" online reader function.)

It stands to reason that it took a writer with developmental disabilities to come up with the brilliantly simple idea that you can manage your fears by listing them. Now all I have to do is find a notepad roughly the size of the phone book.
