About the Author
Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott grew up on a farm (angry bulls and recalcitrant ploughs), went to school (hated it), did electrical engineering at university (never again), then became a Chartered Accountant (nearly his biggest mistake so far). Working as an accountant for 10 years made him ill. While doing accountancy he studied then practised various ‘natural’ therapies. This made it possible for him to worry about patients for over 35 years, mostly in Edinburgh, Scotland, where he lives. He has taught Chinese Medicine since 1985 and his website www.acupuncture-points.org explaining Chinese Medicine in layman’s English attracts praise from round the world. He is married with two grown-up children who he hopes will one day ask him how to cope with stress. His wife leads a very busy life and seems to have worked it out for herself without asking. He occasionally lets business colleagues lure him back into their world to enable him to maintain suitable levels of anger, depression, fear, mania, insomnia and worry. Writing this book helped to calm him down. He has qualifications in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, homoeopathy, and physical therapies such as Bowen technique.

The lack of sleep did affect my work day and, because of not being well rested, my stress-related problems where aggravated (I had a burn-out in the past).
This book very clearly explained exactly what my problem was: "Lung Qi stagnation". The Chinese Clock (appendix 5) left no doubt: from 3 am to 5 am is 'lung time'. And from 5 till 7 am the time of the related organ: the large intestine (second part of the metal phase). The author explained exactly what I was dealing with and came with many ways to 'cure' the problem. I have taken a few serious, particularly more physical exercise and breathing exercises, and for the first time in 6 years I sleep well most nights.
What I love about the book is that it clearly explains the causes of the problems and simple ways to deal with it. It does take some effort to really figure out what the main problem is (I also have some liver qi stagnation) but many recommendations are the same for different types of qi stagnation.
For me this book is absolutely priceless. And a nice side effect: I am now making regular physical exercise a priority in my life no matter how busy I am with work. Nice to know: the book has many other suggestions too for those that are not that much into sports.
Highly recommended for anyone suffering from stress-related problems!
The writer does have something to say, but it is presented so badly and repetitively that after 15% I am about to give up in frustration and disbelief.
