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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dear professor answering to your epilogue reading your book was truly a useful and rewarding experience.
17 luglio 2016
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.

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.
13 luglio 2016
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.
