'Only Fear Dies' is an extraordinary book that everyone - unhappy, resentful,
depressed or just wishing to affirm their joy of life - should read. Barry
Long's 'book of liberation' aims to break the chain of negativity and
misery we, through generations of affirming the hopeless human plight,
have been conditioned to believe, accept and attract. Referring to examples
to underline his point, Long writes with a certain wit and clarity that
wins the reader's approval immediately, despite some of his controversial
arguments. His personification of feelings delivers a kind of immediate
presence to his voice that makes one want to read on. 'Only Fear Dies'
is about the birth and death of all things that make up an individual's
life. Long suggests ways to be vulnerable to love, happiness and accept
truth and responsibility for the self. Every avenue available to human
consciousness has been unearthed and examined, dissected and analysed
so that the reader may find contentment and love within his or herself
and rejoice in new-found freedom.
