This book is amazing for anyone who is stressed, was stressed or will be stressed in their lives. Sapolsky has a great ability to write for the biologist and the average person alike without the feeling that it is 'dumbed down'. As a biologist 'read: stressed' this book was the perfect way for me to realize that we are creatures built for short intense bouts of stress rather than the prolonged stress that we encouter ever day. Sapolsky defines the different types of stress, teaches the mechanisms of that stress and the bodily systems it affects and then even goes so far as to give ways to cope. The author has a great sense of humor so the book is never dull and boring, like your average science textbook. Not your typical self-help book. A great read for zebras and humans alike.

A great book and an introduction to some amazing science of the human mind and body. I can't recommend it enough. Although dense with science, it is craftily hidden in cool stories. You get to the end smarter, entertained, and understanding yourself much better.

This author is a humorous writer, describing the human predicament as one we have great control over but only if we choose to. This book is completely thorough in describing the effects of stress which are both good and bad. It is a bit more technical but if you don't mind rereading some text, you won't need any other book on the subject. There are no secrets to a healthy lifestyle, just a lot of common sense, valuing health and prioritizing life. This book describes both the why and the how of a healthy lifestyle.
