Nerve: Poise Under Pressure, Serenity Under Stress, and the Brave New Science of Fear and Cool - Taylor Clark I am drawn to books like this, something that provides a wealth of knowledge written in a fun and snarky way. Nerve didn't disappoint in the snarky department. There is a wide range of studies about how your nerves work, why some people get panic attacks while others attack the issues with grace and never break a sweat. I am one of those that can't speak in public to save my life, but my son thrives on it. The book explains that we are all wired differently to react to situations that occur daily. There are also a series of steps that help those with anxiety riddled lives to help control the problem. If you enjoy Mary Roach, you will love this one!
