DK should rename this 'Life's survival handbook'. This book neatly and succinctly tells you the same corner stones of psychology and health best practice that many so-called gurus preach in expensive seminars simply dressing it up with new jargon or that hundreds of books and magazine articles deal with. It covers many situations from divorce to work stress. When my friends are down I have been able to make a real difference in helping them understand their problems and what to do to turn things around by lending them this book. I do have to crow bar it back from their clutches though! Guess that makes it the perfect gift too from a caring friend but I'd never part with my own copy.

This book is broken down into three sections. To paraphrase these are: 1. How am I showing stress? 2. Why am I stressed? 3. How do I stop being so stressed?
It takes you through the steps of stress management in bitesize pieces. Despite this ease of access, the book covers a lot of ground (for greater detail other sources may be necessary). This enables you to look at all of the many areas of your life that may be causing you stress and prevent fixation on one specific area.
The book contains various quizzes and practical steps to take both physically and mentally.

This is a no-nonsense, jargon-free excellent resource to enable everyone to get a little bit more happiness and control in their lives. What attracted me to the book was the publisher - Dorling Kindersley as I always find their books packed with information, with little fluff and clearly strucutred with a wonderful ease of access.

There is a section for everyone, at every stage in one's life. So the book has excellent breadth too; for example sections on improving relationships and the sources of stress such as change and bereavement. There could be a bit more on meditation & aromatherapy - there is information on relaxation and exercise. There could even be a suggested 'time table' for a day - and exercises to complete, instead of just questionnaires.

Good book! I used one of the questionnaires in this to survey my companies workforce - the result was that they weren't stressed! They weren't amused but its a good book nonetheless!

Helpful Information!! 2 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book in preparation for giving a presentation and writing a term paper in a stress management class. I found that this book provides adequate information on how to recognize the symptoms of stress. It also gives useful tips on how to deal with the stress in a positive way. Towards the end, however, some of the information seemed repetitive.

I've read many self help books about stress, anxiety, depression, etc. I thought this one had very sound advice for destressing. Would definitely recommend to someone who is under a lot of stress!
