Description
Content

We live it in stressful times. Some authors refer to it as the age of anxiety. It is more important than ever to understand and identify stress in its various forms and take action to defuse it or avoid it. But some stress is both unpredictable and unavoidable, and it is equally important to build resistance to it and be able to work in harmony with it. This book provides the information and strategies to do this.
