July 25, 2017 at 12:09 PM
I would place this book on top of the list of relevant books I have read for two reasons: it is easy to read and has easy to follow instructions AND it innovates as it discusses stress and time!
July 21, 2017 at 1:15 PM
Most professions may be stressful at times but sales seems to be stress-producing more often than other activities. Professor Piperopoulos and Bookboon are providing their readers with plenty of practical help.
July 21, 2017 at 12:51 PM
Very useful, refreshingly practical, easy to follow.
July 13, 2017 at 8:55 AM
I have read several other books on stress but this one as it combines two related subjects and is pleasant to read and easy to follow can be very helpful.
July 4, 2017 at 12:10 PM
Simply said a very useful book!
July 3, 2017 at 11:31 AM
No mindbogglingly concepts, no scientific incomprehensible jargon. A book that simply and unpretentiously delivers its promise! Easy to read, easy to apply suggestions.
June 29, 2017 at 6:21 PM
The classic approach is to treat each one of the two subjects independently but professor Piperopoulos appropriately and skillfully has combined them in a very useful book. When stressed times slip through your fingers as water would. When running short of time you will be stressed! Pleasant reading!
June 28, 2017 at 11:12 AM
Two global challenges, too much stress and too little time approached with a globally valid mix of western and eastern philosophies, strategies, and techniques. Well done!
June 27, 2017 at 11:38 AM
The author has managed to combine scientific rigor wuth poetic disposition delivering an easy to read and follow book.
June 27, 2017 at 10:59 AM
Creatively realistic approach to a real problematic condition for many of us. Easy to follow techniques..
June 14, 2017 at 12:05 PM
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.
June 14, 2017 at 11:46 AM
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...
June 10, 2017 at 12:43 PM
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!
June 9, 2017 at 7:41 AM
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.
June 6, 2017 at 11:57 AM
Reading professor Piperopoulos' books is a pleasant experience and this little book with its fresh treatment of the debilitating effects of stress and the taxing experience of lack of time is a rewarding experience.
June 4, 2017 at 12:19 PM
I am not unreal stating that ours is a stressful world. The stress we undergo engaging in the sales areas are most of the time extreme. This little booklet is an oasis in the midst of the stress Sahara! Well done.
June 3, 2017 at 10:50 AM
Management entails stress on evey level but being in middle management level I feel especially stressed as those below plead for "favors and...understanding"while those above demand that "extra something". This book is a welcome and fruitful addition to everything else I have read.
June 1, 2017 at 12:21 PM
Having read several books on these two challenging and contemporary subjects I feel somewhat qualified to state that I liked this book for its brevity, down to earth style and easy to follow instructions. If you live and function in a stress producing setting please download it. It is useful.
May 31, 2017 at 11:36 AM
The proverbial "small is beautiful" can be successfully applied to this book. Surely there is an abundance of books dealing with stress and time management but professor Piperopoulos and Bookboon have provided us with a fresh and useful book. Well done.
May 28, 2017 at 11:19 AM
Impressive work! Small in the number of pages but usefully long in its helpful manner of applying stress reduction strategy and techniques. Equally useful in time management suggestions. Enjoyed and helped reading it.
May 20, 2017 at 5:15 PM
Useful, practical, enlightening! After reading it I would recommend it without hesitations AND its free!
April 25, 2017 at 8:32 AM
Easy reading, practical suggestions, useful philosophy of life. For students and working persons a must have. Find the time and you will be rewarded
April 22, 2017 at 8:37 AM
Easy and pleasant reading, useful instructions, practical.Thank you professor Piperopoulos, thank you Bookboon
April 18, 2017 at 11:44 AM
Easy to read, well structured helpful suggestions, practical to follow directions. Interesting presentation of the time management section.
April 17, 2017 at 9:26 AM
Practical, easy to understand, useful especially when exam times and paper submission deadlines are imminent.
April 9, 2017 at 9:05 AM
There is a myth that stress is a problem affecting northern Europeans and not us living in the south. In reality this book is useful to me and other fellow students originating from Spain and Italy. As a postgraduate student i was helped in managing my time.
April 8, 2017 at 9:55 AM
Well written, innovative in its approach to both subjects, enriched with down to earth suggestions. Read it and your time will be richly rewarded.
April 1, 2017 at 7:06 PM
A book useful to most of us as stress is a condition that most of us experience and time a commodity most of us cannot properly manage. Download it, read it and you will agree with me as I claim it very useful.
March 31, 2017 at 6:42 PM
As an academic and a practitioner in sales management I have personal experience of stressful situations. I confess that I have known professor Piperopoulos and I have suggested that he should produce such a book. I am thankful to him and bookboon for publishing this book. I strongly recommend it for my students and my associates. It is easy to read and very helpful.
October 29, 2016 at 3:13 PM
After a dozen years in the banking industry and half a dozen years in tourism I have a lot to say about both stress/anxiety an time pressures. This little book is a welcome answer to a lot of relevant questions. Read it and you will be as thankful to Professor Piperopoulos and to Bookboon as I am.
October 15, 2016 at 8:19 AM
Being successfully active in the tourist industry I know first hand what stress means and how distressing is often time the lack of time!! Professor Piperopoulos and Bookboon has given me a valuable resource which I happily recommend.
October 14, 2016 at 10:33 AM
Students do feel stress, especially at exam periods amd they realize that they always are behind time. But stress and time management are rwo serious problems for those of us working as managers. This little book is a practical, useable source of valuable help.
October 12, 2016 at 7:40 PM
A welcome addition to the bibliography concerning stress and time management. The author's choice to combine the two issues in a relatively short book is a difficult task, well done. I recommend it!
October 12, 2016 at 7:19 PM
In our business, on a worldwide basis, stress is the name of the game and lack of time, follows it. Professor Piperopoulos has given us a very useful management tool!
October 11, 2016 at 12:25 PM
Informative, instructive, easily read and practical. A useful little book for our over stressed times. Good reward for the time investment.
October 11, 2016 at 7:32 AM
Stress is not a 'privilege' of Europe and America! So this short booklet can be very helpful to all of us in the rest of the world.
October 9, 2016 at 3:42 PM
I was pleasantly impressed by this little book. It is a must read for stressed students and professionals
October 7, 2016 at 7:40 AM
Here is a brief but excellent help for those of us feeling squeezed between job demands and lack of time. Small book but after all expensive goods come in small packages. Must read.
October 6, 2016 at 11:56 AM
This well-written book is a valuable guide to a stressless life. Thanks to Professor Piperopoulos we can achieve a better living using easy techniques. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
September 11, 2016 at 6:38 PM
This is small in size but very large in its usefulness practical and academically sound book. Learned a lot and enjoyed it. Passed it on to friends who will also enjoy reading it and use its techniques.
July 31, 2016 at 3:55 PM
The book provides valuable assistance not only to all students and researchers but also to anyone who has the intention to go further regarding stress and how to cope with it in our everyday life. We can also find useful proposals for achieving a better living. In this context, we are grateful to the author for his outstanding propositions.
July 30, 2016 at 8:53 PM
Written in a friendly, down-to-earth, easy to read style, easily understood by the lay person. Gives a practical list of ways to handle stress in your life.
July 29, 2016 at 5:56 PM
There are two parts between the prolegomena and epilegomena. The first part exhibits the author's ability to transform complex scientific concepts and data into easy to read and comprehend prose. The anxiety and stress control techniques are valuable. The second part is indeed an innovative, almost poetic rendition of the elusive concept of time. Great reading in a small book.
July 29, 2016 at 6:09 AM
An excellent combination between academic knowledge and practitioner’s experience, very well written, useful for everyone! Highly recommended reading! Congratulations to Professor George Piperopoulos!
July 28, 2016 at 4:45 PM
we live in a World full of stress & anxiety. For most of us time is a precious commodity. This book is an excelent help in teaching us how to control stress & understand the concept of time. A must read little useful book.
July 28, 2016 at 3:06 PM
A very useful and easy to read book written by a professor who also has many experiences from his practice. As we live in a world full of demands and little time, this book is a sociological GPS.
July 27, 2016 at 7:53 AM
When academic expertise combined with the practitioners' experiences stand behind a book it becomes a useful, enjoyable MUST read item.
July 26, 2016 at 4:08 PM
Since stress controlling is a very common problem in the modern and 'complex' society in which we live, and time management is crucial to our every day life, this book as it is written, is a useful and helpful tool.
July 24, 2016 at 6:47 PM
In a world filled with stress and anxiety and for most of us who lack time this little book offers viable information and practical help. Pleasant and useful reading.
July 21, 2016 at 3:02 PM
I feel grateful each time I come through with one of Professor Piperopoulos’ books. Not surprisingly, his new book Control Your Stress & Manage Your Time retains this feeling. In an amazing way he orchestrates all the stress related theoretical background with real life examples that everyone can comprehend. Getting to finish the first part of the book I felt that I had just received some very useful stress reduction techniques and the time spent to read it was worth of it. Surprisingly, Professor Piperopoulos hadn’t said his last word. Like pulling an ace of his sleeve he just gone well and above with Part Two. It would be extremely difficult to find such an easy to read text combining literature, ancient philosophers, technocratic data and practical tips such as “setting goals” and “things to do”. And for the end, he just corroborates his long academic experience and esteem by presenting the “Philosophic View of Time”. A must read book not only for its practicality but also for letting everyone to think deeper if the time spent till now has been exploited in the best possible way.
July 20, 2016 at 5:53 PM
This book is a primer about stress, stress-related disease, the mechanisms of coping with stress and ways to manage our time effectively. How is it that our bodies can adapt to some stressful emergencies, while other ones make us respond with the “fight or flight” response? Why are some of us especially vulnerable to stress-related diseases and what does that have to do with our personalities? Medication, once considered the treatment of choice, is losing favor as more and more sufferers complain of unpleasant side effects and its quick-fix nature. Now, thanks to fresh research and insights into brain anatomy, effective, practical strategies have emerged allowing us to manage day-to-day anxiety on our own without medication. Addressing physical, emotional, and behavioral symptoms, Dr. Georgios P. Piperopoulos, a leading academic-practitioner, provides specific stress reduction and time management strategies. Breathing techniques to biofeedback and autogenic training are included. This is a great book for those who don’t want to see a therapist or those who need some extra encouragement and practice to overcome their stress and anxiety and gives specific instructions on how to overcome stress and manage our time effectively.
July 17, 2016 at 5:50 PM
Dear professor answering to your epilogue reading your book was truly a useful and rewarding experience.
July 17, 2016 at 1:50 PM
Excellent book. Georgios Piperopoulos has managed to take a very upsetting condition, the stress, that affects millions of people, and break it down into terms that are less intimidating. He added then techniques to further control stress by improving time management and created a book that many people will find extremely useful. Finally a very clear, solid advice to deal with stress and time management in fun, short, easy-to-read format. I particularly like the manner in which the book deals with the two topics taking into consideration a variety of factors and presenting inputs we all need to know. It has well organized chapters and greatly defined paragraph structure.
July 15, 2016 at 1:35 PM
Stress is a daily routine in my line of work as it is, I can imagine, with most of us involved in middle and upper management. And time is an elusive reality. I was pleasantly surprised by the way professor Piperopoulos deals with Stress and Time and I would highly recommend this book to associates and friends.
July 13, 2016 at 4:12 PM
I have had the pleasure of attending along with my subordinates a special seminar on Stress and Time management lead by Professor Piperopoulos. The whole team found it useful and rewarding and we had wished to have his presentation in the form of a book. Obviously he has heard our call and I must say that I am impressed by this book which I would recommend to other associates and friends as a 'must read'. Excellent work by a seasoned academic-practitioner.
