Book Nook: Playing Scared - A History and Memoir of Stage Fright, by Sara Solovitch
Sara Solovitch had aspirations when she was younger; she wanted to become a really great pianist. She worked at it but at an early age she realized that there was an insurmountable impediment to her achieving that goal; she simply could not play before an audience. Many years later she decided it was time to get to the bottom of her stage fright. She spent a year researching it and working hard to overcome it.
At the end of that year she gave a public recital. Find out what happened; listen to this interview then you'll probably want to read the book.
