I'm an American woman living overseas, and believe-you-me, I've had some VERY stressful times these past ten years. I'm not stressed out at present, but saw this book, and ordered it to deal with the next time I am. Looking through the book, I would have given ANYTHING to have this book at various times these past few years. If you are stressed out, BUY THIS BOOK! WELL WORTH THE MONEY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy-to-read, concrete strategies for stress reduction. 27 Jun. 2002
By Reviewer Dr. Beth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a psychologist working in a college counseling center, and this is one of the top self-help books which I recommend to my clients. It's appropriate for anyone looking to find ways to reduce the amount of anxiety and stress they feel. Strategies address all areas of anxiety, including physical tension, worry, and interpersonal issues. Each chapter details a specific anxiety reduction strategy--eg, diaphragmatic breathing, self-hypnosis, thought stopping--and at the start of the book, there is a self quiz to help determine which chapters would best meet your individual needs. This is one of the best, simpliest books avaiable for reducing anxiety and stress; it's also useful for a wide variety of related problems such as depression and difficulties sleeping. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best compilation of current techniques available 24 Jan. 2002
By Harold McFarland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Unlike many books, this book is exactly what the title purports it to be. It is a workbook containing most of the common and not so common techniques being used for relaxation and stress reduction today. Each chapter not only describes a technique but also what symptoms you can expect it to relieve and an estimate of how long you will have to use it in order to master the technique. I have seen no other book that does such a thorough job as this one. That is not to say that there are not others that are much better on a specific technique, but this is the best overall survey of all the currently used and effective techniques and the only one that guides you to what to expect, the details of the techniques and how long you will have to practice before seeing results.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version of this is terrible 10 Aug. 2012
By Kimberly Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I downloaded this yesterday and later when I went to read it, the Kindle format is a disastrous mess. The pages are incomplete, some are missing, cut off at the bottom and the exercises don't correspond with the correct pages or chapters. Very disappointing and ironically a bit stressful considering its subject matter is stress REDUCTION and relaxation....This book was recommended to me so I'll just have the download refunded and buy the paper version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great practical, readable guide 2 Aug. 2005
By Sandra M. Jsames - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is nicely laid out. It starts with background information on stress. Then it gives you some tests to take that indicate how stressful your situation is, what is a normal level of stress, and what areas you might want to focus on first. The rest of the book is short chapters giving you the basics on various techniques you can use to manage stress.

I don't normally like self-help books -- but this one is a gem. I refer to it often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good choices 13 Sept. 2005
By Valerie D. Mooney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a therapist and regularly recommend this book. I like the variety of techniques it offers, as one technique may work for once client and not for another. It also has a chapter on dealing with chronic worrying, and an excellent, educational first chapter on stress and anxiety and how it affects us physically, emotionally, etc. My clients love this book. One recently told me it was like having her therapist "right there, all the time". They have sought experts in the various fields and of numerous techniques and theoretical orientations, which leave a nice balance of information from which to choose,use, practice, and get help.
