She lets us in to her personal experiences with uncompromising clarity, and then explains how those experiences fit into larger scientific thought. She provides just enough background on theories about how the brain processes fear, and the way the field has evolved. These dares were ridiculous and the compensation wasn't enough.

Vee is willing to risk it for the shoes, so the two drive back to the coffee shop for the next dare. The online audience makes crude comments about her wet, see-through T-shirt.

Ryan's story is thought-provoking and unsettling, though even with the adrenaline rush the game provides, Vee's motivation to keep playing taking on increasingly sexual and dangerous tasks requires a stretch of the imagination.

Eva Holland’s fears seem deep-rooted and debilitating, but her examination of them, and her attempts to overcome them make for a fascinating read.
