This provocative, entertaining, often laugh-out-loud story follows Yogis as he attempts to surf bigger and more difficult waves, culminating in northern California's Mavericks--huge, crushing (and sometimes deadly) waves in the dead of winter.

"There is a hell of a lot of fun packed between these two covers. Wonderfully reported, unflinchingly honest and definitely big-balled. If Jaimal Yogis' deep dive into fear doesn't make you want to go out and push your limits--well, you're probably already dead." --Steven Kotler, author of "West of Jesus ""Nothing holds us back more in life than fear. Jaimal Yogis explores this primal emotion in depth from an evolutionary, neuropsychological, and philosophical perspective, all wrapped up in a highly engaging personal narrative. "The Fear Project" offers the keys to overcoming excuses and anxiety, and stepping into the life you've always dreamed of having."--MeiMei Fox, co-author of the "New York Times" bestseller, "Fortytude"
""The Fear Project "is an enchanting autobiographical journey. Yogis""deftly explores our current scientific, religious and philosophical views on our most fundamental emotion, and the reward is as significant as it is palpable. I absolutely loved this book and will share it with everyone--in particular, high performance athletes."--Michael Lardon, author of "Finding Your Zone
""Jaimal Yogis weaves together neuroscience, dramatic true stories, and practical wisdom in a fascinating, important book that moves with the page-turning verve of a thriller." --Rick Hanson, author of "The Buddha's Brain
"Like a mammoth wave moving across the ocean, "The Fear Project" takes us on a wild ride into the heart of our deepest primordial fears and onto the shores of light."--Stuart Coleman, author of "Eddie Would Go" and "Fierce Heart
"From the first chapter about his swimming in the dark, shark-infested waters surrounding Alcatraz to stories of surfing 80-foot waves at Mavericks, this book is alive and pumping with adrenaline! It brings you to the edge of fear over and over again with a lasting lesson on confronting fear in ways that are healthy and powerful."--David Romanelli, author of "Yeah Dave's Guide to Livin' the Moment
