This review is from: Stress proof your life (52 Brilliant Ideas) (Kindle Edition)
Even as a freebie this book is overpriced. It's dreadful.
The first two pages are very engaging - telling you this book won't be advising hot baths and yoga, because if you're the type of person that finds them helpful, you'll already be doing them. Then it's all down hill... Only a few pages later we're straight into 'bath rituals' and "set the alarm for half an hour and soak in the bath, drinking herbal tea throughout". Yoga is recommended, sometimes in detail and explaining exactly what asanas we should be doing, 14 times.
Beyond baths and yoga, the book only has three things to say:
1. Stress makes huge improvements to your sex life (WHAT???)
2. If you're stressed and don't want to be, then don't be!
3. If stress is making you sad, you're a freak who needs a doctor immediately
This book is shamefully bad, and possibly damaging to anyone suffering from real stress.

The book says that Some stress (specifically a little bit of stress once of twice a week), when you learn to manage it, can improve your sex life.
It says that if you already have long baths and do yoga, you're probably not too stressed - because these methods work. They are not the only things, there are lots of other things too but they are valid strategies.
If you want to not be stressed, you have to change some of the things that you do - that is a choice.

Has this reviewer actually reviewed the right book? This book doesn't make any of these claims. As someone suffering from clinical depression, it is very practical and down to earth.
