Format: Paperback
At last there is a positive, clear and concise book focusing on managing personal stress and recognising the signs and symptoms of stress in others. Author and Stress Management expert Carole Spiers has condensed her knowledge and experience of managing workplace stress into this very readable book. Packed full of tips, this no nonsense book is a must for everyone who is feeling that stress is begining to impact on their work and relationships and for those managing staff who are finding they cannot cope with pressure.

Format: Paperback
Feeling trapped by stress? Here is an excellent guide to the ways out. One of its first points is that stress is different for everyone. So it doesn't give you the cop-out that no-one understands your situation. The different types and causes of stress are painstakingly set out, so you'll recognise yourself in many places, usually as the person under stress, sometimes as the one whose behaviour has caused stress to others!

This lovely book is peppered with lists, self-administered tests, and delightful anecdotes. My own favourite is preparation for a one one-to-one interview where someone may be stressed: a list of what to say - and what not to say!

There are lots more practical hints - keeping a stress diary so you can understand what's causing stress; how to do work-life balance, relaxation, and exercise at work. Also, how to avoid the worst in diet - balanced meals are essential, with lots of 'whats', 'whys' and 'hows', but no recipes! Caffeine and alcohol can help, but only in small quantities; sugar on the other hand will give you a short-term `high' but no other advantages.

This is a book that will set you thinking - really thinking. Yet it's an easy cover-to-cover read. That's partly down to the persuasive content, but also the well-chosen font and relaxed layout - plus the cuddly lion who stars in the brilliant cartoons. If you feel just too stressed to make time for a book about stress, you can dip at random into the middle, use the contents page to get to the topics that are really stressing you, or cheat and jump to the end - where you'll find author Carole Spiers waiting with '10 Quick Stress Management Fixes'. Once you've read this book, you'll want to read it again, and put its wisdom into practice. It'll help you do what it says on the cover: 'Show stress who's boss!'

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book, packed full of excellent practical tips and suggestions that can easily be applied and incorporated for everyday use. All the advice can be taken on board in an easily digestible form, and the topics covered give you the chance to create and use your own 'self-help checklists'. This is also a book you can delve into at any time for guidance and for a 'refresher'. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in order for them to help manage their own, and indeed their team's, stress. Although certainly not restricted to, this will be an invaluable tool and asset for anyone in business. So useful, I will be re-reading again. Thank you, Carole!

Format: Paperback
This is a perfect book and very much needed - a light hearted MUST read for a variety of people. We can all relate to these daily occurrences - managers, mothers, wives, husbands, you name it! The fact that such a difficult topic is presented in such an easy to read manner is superb. I particularly enjoyed the examples, the cartoons, the little scenarios, the quotes, the layout .... everything I guess!

The book can be read in between school runs, on particularly stressful occasions, or on a daily basis to prevent your stress levels from rising. AND MOST DEFINITELY BEFORE XMAS PREPARATIONS ARE SET UNDER WAY.

As my husband said to me late one evening "you may read the book in bed but try not to laugh so loudly" ... it's light hearted but portrays the facts and methods of how to deal with day to day stressful issues in a much needed copable manner.

Thank you, Carole.

Carole Spiers, `Show Stress Who's the Boss! - The Essential Guide to Managing Stress'

This is an eminently practical book, refreshingly free of psychobabble and full of tried and tested techniques to manage stress both in yourself and in those around you.

`Show Stress Who's the Boss!' is at once, easy to read and intellectually satisfying. The presentation is such that it can be "dipped into" in 10 minute intervals on short train journeys or else read from cover to cover without exhausting the reader.

Each sub-section has key learning points identified and is illustrated with great cartoons, apposite quotations, and practical examples, which bring the text to life.

This book will be invaluable for readers looking to better understand the nature of stress, its causes, physical, emotional and behavioural effects, and, crucially, how to bring it under control. For individual readers, it is an excellent self-help book. For managers and supervisors, it points the way to creating a working environment and culture in which people can thrive and excel.

The final section of the book contains a wealth of proven tools and resources for combating stress and flourishing, even in the face of life's difficulties.

At a time when stress is the leading cause of long term sickness absence from the workplace (CIPD, 2011)*, this is an important and timely publication, which I thoroughly recommend.

*Based on findings from an online survey, completed by 592 UK employers in June 2011.
