There are many books on stress and coaching. The unique feature of this one is that it: (a) rests on a solid theoretical ground and (b) presents a number of scientifically developed practical tools. It can be used either as a self-management tool or as an aid for coaches. The book aims to help stressed professionals in all kinds of fields in today’s “high velocity culture” to prevent small stress problems to escalate and show ways to reduce or eliminate existing stress-related difficulties.


How are you feeling right now? This is the core question behind this book. But there is a hidden agenda! Before introducing it, we would like to present the Emotional Stress Reaction Questionnaire (ESRQ) right up-front. Read the instruction and start this book by responding to the ESRQ below. It should take less than one minute to complete!

This is one of those self-help books that I go back to when I have some things that bother me. The tools are practical and applicable to anyone.
