Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyWritten by two stress-management experts at the University of Massachusetts, this concise guide shows that even the busiest person can become less tense. After describing stress and its effects, the authors give anecdotal accounts of clients' problems. They demonstrate that drugs, alcohol and junk foods are mere palliatives and do not cure the root causes of tension. They recommend that people learn their ``stress buttons'' and concentrate on remaining relaxed in stressful situations. Suggestions are given for setting realistic ``less stress'' goals. Helpful sections at the end include reading lists, sources for relaxation tapes and workshops. (August)

Less Stress in 30 Days based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
My wife bought this book for me before it was in print for 6 months. I was near a meltdown from job stress. I did what this book told me to do, and in 30 days, I could see how close to burn out I had come. I was able to change enough of my life, outside our relationship, that I can now say, more than 15 years later, that we are still happily married. I am now buying a copy for a frined.
