Reviews

Rafaella Ambrosio ★★★★★

Creatively realistic approach to a real problematic condition for many of us. Easy to follow techniques..

Mike Palmer ★★★★★

Useful whatever managent level you are in. As the author reminds us stress free humans are only those no longer among us : retired or Resting in Peace.

Jennifer Acosta ★★★★★

Indeed 'good things come in small packages'. This little book is of great value to everyone excepting those whose vocabulary does not include the word STRESS...

John Moloney ★★★★★

I first went quickly through this booklet aiming to get a bird's eye view of its content. Then I focused on the professor's suggestions and special procedures for learning to control my stress. You can apply your strategy if it differs from mine but I am certain that you will benefit as I did. Enjoy!

Alfonso Ramirez ★★★★★

To characterize this booklet as helpful or useful is too pedestrian. I would recommend it as "must read" to those of us who live and work in stressful settings.

Description

This is a fresh innovative diversion from traditional ‘how-to-do it’ books dealing with stress and time. Aimed at today’s professionals, as well as students and members of the general public, overburdened by stress and anxiety and failing to master their time schedules. The book offers a novel, scientifically supported, and unique approach in helping the readers fully understand the nature of stress and anxiety and the concept of time. In its practical contribution the book provides a variety of easy to learn and to apply techniques aimed to help the readers’ ability to successfully control their stress and effectively manage their time. Basically an enjoyable, ‘must’ download and read book.
