"As I read the third edition of Amiram Elwork's book on lawyer stress, one word came constantly to mind: ESSENTIAL - absolutely so for every lawyer in the country. No one knows as much as Elwork about this topic, and his knowledge is a gift to the profession." --Steven Keeva, author of Transforming Practices: Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life

"Dr. Elwork's book is a standard in the area of lawyer stress. It is concise and highly readable, and yet exhaustive in scope and well- researched. I would assign it as a required reading for all law students and lawyers." --Susan Daicoff, Professor, Florida Coastal School of Law, and author of Lawyer, Know Thyself

"Dr. Elwork delivers solid advice that helps lawyers prevent and manage stress. Lucidly written and grounded on sound psychological principles, this is the leading book on the subject. I recommend it highly." --Larry R. Richard, Director of Leadership and Organization Development, Hildebrandt International

"Writing a book with lasting power means writing a book that serves. This book touches on all the essential elements that lawyers need for creating a balanced life at work and at home. The information is clear, the advice is correct." --George W. Kaufman, author of the Lawyer's Guide To Balancing Life And Work: Taking The Stress Out Of Success.
