Customer Reviews - The Little Book of Stress Relief
[Review of earlier edition: ] This well-written book is set up in 52 very brief chapters... The idea is that you seriously tackle one issue a week.-- (05/17/2004) (about the previous edition) For the person who has done a lot of reading about stress, the book is a primer. For new readers on this subject, the book will have much information to offer. Even for those of us who have studied stress, its consequences, and how to more effectively handle it, the book is a helpful refresher.-- (03/01/2006)
