S. Eliot' - Sunday Telegraph * 'Patmore's book is a welcome antidote... It is time to accept that stress theory has gone too far.' - Daily Telegraph * 'The more Patmore writes, the more I like her...Her writing is full of fire and her examples of stress accountrements are wonderfully wry.' - New Statesman"
