Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ernest Fruge, PhD (Baylor College of Medicine)
Description: This book offers an overview of stress and its causes, effects, and management. The book is intended for the busy general medical practitioner.
Purpose: The purpose is to improve the skills of a variety of primary care providers. The authors also hope to enhance the collaboration between medical and mental health professionals in the treatment of stress and stress-related disorders. These are worthy objectives, and the book makes a modest contribution to the area.
Audience: The authors state that the book is written for a wide medical audience, including students and nurses. In my opinion, it is addressed mainly to the busy general physician. The authors are clearly experienced and thoughtful.
Features: The illustrations, table of contents, and index are all adequate. The references are current and applicable. The book's appearance is suitable for its audience. The book contains several helpful appendixes that provide guidelines for producing patient education materials and samples.
Assessment: This book contains a great deal of useful information and is a good general introduction to stress and its management for GP's. The major drawback is the writing style. The writing is often excessively abstract, at times redundant, and somewhat confusing in its organization. A patient and interested reader, however, will retrieve helpful tips and information that are directly applicable to practice.
