Publisher's Summary

Stress is a lot like love - hard to define, but you know it when you feel it.

This book will explore the nature of stress and how it infiltrates every level of your life, including the physical, emotional, cognitive, relational, and even spiritual. You'll find ways to nurture resilience, rationality, and relaxation in your everyday life, and learn how to loosen the grip of worry and anxiety. Through techniques that get to the heart of your unique stress response, and an exploration of how stress can affect your relationships, you'll discover how to control stress instead of letting it control you. This book shows you how.

But this book is not just another anti-stress book. Here, we will not be concerned with only reducing the symptoms of stress. Rather, we'll try to understand exactly what stress is and the role it plays in our lives. We'll attempt to dig deep to really understand the real sources of our anxiety and how to take ownership of them. Using the power of habit and several techniques for smoothing out the stressful wrinkles in our day-to-day lives, we'll move toward a real-world solution to living with less stress, more confidence, and a deep spiritual resilience that will insulate you from the inevitable pressures of life.

By adopting a trusting, open, and relaxed attitude, we'll bring something more of ourselves to relationships of all kinds. This book will take a look at dating and relationships without stress and worry, as well as ways to bring tranquility and balance into your home and family life. Again, this book is not about eradicating stress from your life forever. We'll end with a consideration of the positive side of negative thinking, and how we can use stress and worry to our advantage.

Good Starting Point to Understanding Stress Management

This book is good for people who are just finding out that stress is negatively affecting their lives. The book provides a good, high-level overview of some of the concepts relating to stress and stress management, though it could include some more in-depth tools and how to apply them.

Empty of Substance

This is one of those books (and I've read a few of these in the last year) where much like dianetics, you read through 2/3 of the book and you're still waiting for it to start. It seems like he spends two-thirds of the book telling you what he's going to tell you and the problems he's going to help you solve and then, the next thing you know, the book is over. He seems like a well-intended author but the book was largely devoid of substance and I think I'm more stressed for having read it.

Adolescent viewpoint

Lacks perception and skill in helping those who worry. Dale Carnegie used stories as a skilled teacher author. Mr Simeon uses blame and immature goal setting.

Hard to do

It made me cry, it's very hard for me to change the way I think about myself or try to change the situation's point of view. It is distressing to worry all the time, to feel that you're unworthy and not wanted around. I push people away because I don't want to disappoint them. I loved this book. I wish I could make it work ...

thought I was getting a book not ...

I was very disappointed!!!!! this is not a book but maybe an outline for one. I settled in for a long drive and a portion of a book. it was over before out started. the chapters aren't much longer than the headings. I got nothing from it and will be returning it asap. I don't normally do reviews, but a book shouldn't 32nd before it gets started. needs tho dig in and finish the book expanding each chapter.

Simple and true

I enjoyed the book and the stories! Sadly, I could see parts of myself in the examples.

I liked the suggested exercises and would have appreciated hearing more about why they work and how they have worked for others...
