Stress Information for Teens describes the difference between good stress (sometimes called eustress) and the kinds of stress that can lead to symptoms such as impaired concentration, appetite changes, headaches, insomnia, gastrointestinal problems, depression, anger, anxiety, and other physical and mental concerns. The most common causes of stress in teens are described, and facts are provided about a broad variety of techniques that can be used for stress management, including nutrition, exercise, journaling, breathing techniques, and massage therapy. The book concludes with a directory of stress and stress management resources and suggestions for additional reading.

Understanding what stress is, what causes it, how the body and the mind are impacted by it, and what teens can do are the general categories addressed here. More specific topics include stress as it relates to parents fighting, personal relationships, test anxiety, and sports stressors. Suggestions are offered for places to go for help online and in one's community, as well as music-relaxation ideas and journaling topics. The chapters are brief but informative, and the list of community-help organizations is exhaustive. Report writers will find information quickly and easily, as will those who have personal concerns. The print is clear and the format is readable, making this an accessible resource for struggling readers and researchers.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI
