"Robert M. Sapolsky is one of the best science writers of our time."--Oliver Sacks
For the first edition of Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers:
Sapolsky succeeds in interpreting technical material in a way that leaves readers with an understanding of how the same physiological responses, so well suited for dealing with short-term physical emergencies, can turn into potential disasters when chronically provoked for psychological or other reasons....The author has a way with words and images....you'll find plenty to intrigue you. --The Washington Post
Robert Sapolsky wittily dissects the anatomy of human stress-response. --The Wall Street Journal

Add on the detailed account of how short and long-term exposure to stress hormones impacts on the well-being of the major body systems and finally a brief introduction to ways to mitigate these effects and this book is worth every penny.
Top international reviews
Risulta essere pesante da leggere perché pieno di ripetizioni dall'inizio alla fine. Sebbene siano una delle caratteristiche principali dell'autore, purtroppo rallentano parecchio la lettura. Il libro però resta un ottimo lavoro che affronta temi scientifici di un certo spessore in maniera facilmente comprensibile.
It's packed full with information.
For a laymen like me, this book was a mouthful. Yet, the author did an excellent job to introduce the medical terminology and the concepts, gradually, as you progress, and by the time I was through the book, I was surprised as to how much I had learned. I certainly will go back to it periodically so I don't loose what I've learned.
I think that this book is well worth buying and studying. It provides a lot of valuable advice that you can use to maintain and improve your health in a number of ways.
Thumbs up for Professor Sapolsy!
It provides not only good examples on how the problems develop but proposes good ways of dealing with them at the end of the book.
