Product description

Review

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
