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.
