How to be Brave

Polly Morland: The Society of Timid Souls

'Polly Morland's voice is warm yet very smart, and she's collected some cracking good stories' Lionel Shriver

Can bravery be learned or are some people simply born brave? In her extraordinary new book The Society of Timid Souls Polly Morland sets out to answer this question. 

Interviewing bullfighters, midwives, bank robbers, surfers, mountaineers, the terminally ill and soldiers she examines what courage really means.
