I admire and respect all authors to a great degree. Because of this fact, when I read a book I do not like, I usually just skip doing a review or rating on the book. I feel like it's the kindest thing to do. The old "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything" rule.
However, there were a few things in this book that really bothered me. These same things are the reason I stopped listening to the book at the less than half-way point.
First, the book strikes me as something anyone could have written after doing a couple of google searches on stress relief. When I see PhD in the author's title, I expect a lot more than that.
Then... As I'm listening, I'm hearing the author say if your really stressed at your job, you can always just quit your big corporate job and just go do something else like sack groceries for a living. (not a quote from the book, just what I came away thinking)
And while I'm listening to this I'm thinking, "Sure, theoretically I suppose you can, BUT..." But what about that house and car payment? What about sending your kids to college?
The author doesn't elaborate on that much... Except to go on to say you can always downsize the car and move in with a friend, or hey, why not move back home with your parents?
THATS when I stopped the book. Move home with your parents? Seriously?
I am a parent with grown children in their late 20's. I have been there for my kids and they know they always have a place to land if they need to move home for a while. However, as a parent who has put in the over 20 years of raising a kid into an adult, then paid for that kid's college, I will tell you 'move home with your parents' should not be a viable option in book about how to deal with stress. Guess what, parents have looked forward to getting the kids raised and having their own time alone afterward. Moving home with your parents might cause the person moving in to have less stress, but it's putting an enormous amount of stress onto the parents.
What I took away from listening to about half of this book is, "If it stresses you out, run away from it." And, "Change your life into what is stress-free for you. Even if it may be causing a lot of undue stress to your friends and family."
This book is rubbish.
