Published by Dr. Stephen Palmer and Dr. Cary Cooper, two of the UK leading stress management psychologists, this 2008 edition of the book entitled "How to Deal with Stress" contains simple and straightforward know-how techniques to conquer and/or prevent stress. In 9 chapters, 41 activities and 164 pages, the book can take the reader from a stressful-state of mind, physiology and body to a well-managed and healthy state. In short, this book adopts a self-coaching approach that could seriously help you understand, recognize and deal with stress to finally become a stress manager or even a life manager if you just read it carefully and reflectively, and practice some of its multiple stress-busting techniques. If the reader finds it difficult to spare enough time to wholly read the book, s/he should read the basics and then apply Activities 14, 28 and 33. I believe that these activities are highly instrumental in preventing and/or alleviating stress. In this case, I would recommend that Palmer's multimodal relaxation technique in Activity 33 be modified to directly and explicitly address the stressful situations in its imagery rehearsal portion. In short, despite some errors, I highly recommend this book and find it an extremely useful material for stress management self-coaching. Dr. Yehia A. Ibrahim (yehia-ct@hotmail.com)
