Format: Hardcover
This book is very insightful, as well as giving you biological information on how stress works. If you are searching for a philosophy on life in line with the laws of nature, this is a good place to start.

This books has two important facets.

1. It defines stress on the body properly.

2. It outlines that altruistic egotism is the best way to live biologically. This philosophy is embodied in the phrase 'Earn Thy Neighbour's Love' as opposed to the usual 'golden rule'.

The first part is the book is quite technical - but stick with it. You will learn much. The second part is much easier to read and deals with the attitude you should take in order to be in line with the laws of nature with regards to stress.

All in all, worth a read. Applied knowledge, as they say, is the only knowledge worth having. :)

Everyone thinks they know what is meant by stress. Well they don't.
This book, by the most experienced investigator, explains it in detail.

I can't understand why this book is no longer in print. This man pinpointed, if he didn't invent, the whole concept of Stress. I am on a Psychology course and had to order a second hand book - the University library did not have a copy of this - though it houses many books that are spin offs/refer to this book. Really enjoyed the discussion of 'altruistic egotism' and generally liked the way the book developed from research/biology into more philosphical areas.

An interesting read but a lot has been added to our understanding since Selye opened the debate on the subject of stress.
