Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Victim of a severe trauma herself, the death of her 22-year-old brother while earning her doctorate, psychologist Cramer learned the survival techniques that she teaches as a corporate stress-management consultant and describes here. Case histories, charts and quotes from Norman Cousins, Bernie Segal, Karen Horney comprise information on the author's program. Preceding instruction on adopting the four-part recovery plan, she lists events that can cause deep depression, immobility, even death to vulnerable people, who will find encouragement and help in the detailed text. Occasional hints of patronizing (``Tell yourself `I have just enuff energy, patience, etc. to work' . . . '') detract from the style but not the substance of Cramer's compassionate approach. 75,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; author tour. (May)
