Failure of Nerve is one of those rare books that has you thinking about it long after you have read it. And that’s a good thing, because the ideas in this book are important to think about. Thanks for stimulating my own thinking further with your reviews.
Thank you, David. I have found it to be one of those books that constantly sparks thoughts related to other subjects, as it is a book that has bearing on the posture with which you approach every area of life and thought to some degree or other. It becomes worked into your mental and personal apparatus, as it were. It has clarified my thinking on a host of different matters.
