My Review:
We all have it and not many of us know how to deal with it. It can lead to many ailments and hardly goes away. I thought that it was about time I read a book about it. STRESS! What I liked about this book is that the author takes the time to explain what stress is. Someone like myself, that does not know much about stress, would learn about stress. With that being said, How do we deal with it? First you need to realize what kind of stress you have and what your choices are to deal with it. That is where this "workbook" comes in handy. Short useful messages provoke thought and help you work with your stress. Have a pen ready! I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy, all opinions are my own.
