Editorial Reviews

Howard Blumenfeld
“In an easy-to-read and understandable style, Elizabeth Scott offers a blend of ancient tradition and modern science along with practical advice for dealing with everyday stress. This book is a useful, practical, and comprehensive guide that helps the reader find healthy ways to live life more fully.”
Emery J. Cummins
“I have never seen a more incisive approach to stress reduction and management. The 8 keys format is friendly and easy to use, with down-to-earth examples from daily life. Theoretically sound, eminently practical, and unequivocal without being rigid, this book presents an effective strategy for virtually any real-life situation.”
Pamela Gail Johnson
“8 Keys to Stress Management does an exemplary job of simplifying and explaining stress, addressing its physical and psychological aspects while providing practical examples of how to manage it. Elizabeth Scott reminds us that, while we can’t control all stressors, we can control our attitude, and this alone helps us to manage stress better.”
Ann-Marie McKelvey
“In a global culture where ‘overwhelmed,’ ‘stressed-out,’ and ‘burned-out’ are part of our daily vocabularies, Scott shows us evolutionary alternatives that allow us to live fully and healthily. This book will prompt you to realign with your true self...and, most of all, you'll get your twinkle back!”
Metapsychology Online Reviews
“[A] useful, practical guide to approaching stress. . . . [S]hort enough to be a quick read, yet substantial enough to be a worthwhile one.”
International Journal of Psychotherapy
“The text’s balanced emphasis on both physiological and mental process makes it a holistic and thorough guide for a broad audience. . . . [Scott’s] approach is collective and confident, a writing style that is ideal and even perhaps essential for readers experiencing issues with stress management. . . . [O]rganized and easy to read, 8 Keys to Stress Management is a convenient self-help tool for those looking to manage their stress more effectively.”
PsychCentral
“[This book] provides a thorough and detailed overview on the subject. . . . [T]he book gives us an opportunity to take more of a structured and introspective look at the self. It’s a resource that one might actively work through and then revisit later, rather than read once and put on the shelf. . . . Scott helps normalize the experience of stress and provides a wealth of information about how to manage it.”

    Elizabeth Anne Scott's book was not only valuable in teaching me

    Elizabeth Anne Scott's book was not only valuable in teaching me how to reduce my stress, it was fun to read!  She writes in a breezy, easy-to-understand style that makes grasping these important principles so much easier than I'd anticipated.  It's the best book that I've found on this subject.

    Complete, concise, most helpful

    If you only purchase one book to help you learn about and manage stress, this is the one. It is to the point with useful information, suggestions, and exercises to help identify and handle just about any stressor to minimize the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual toll stress can and does take on our bodies.

    She doesn't repeat herself ad nauseum as did a latger book I've used, but she does do a great job of clearly and concisely making key points.

    Definitely recommend this one.
