Sales is an extremely demanding, stress producing professional activity worldwide. In Greece it has become even more stressful due to our financial woes. I, and I imagine many other readers across the Globe, are thankful to my well known compatriot professor Piperopoulos and Bookboon for writing this very helpful book.
2017 golggotmánnu 18 08:26

2017 borgemánnu 30 11:16
Two daily realities in most professions nowadays. This little book is a valuable helper.
2017 borgemánnu 29 13:07
The best great little book on these two subjects I have read in the last two years. I am not exaggerating. Read it and you will agree.
2017 borgemánnu 29 12:55
Psychological theory and therapy made easy to grasp and follow. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

2017 borgemánnu 24 12:57
A greatly helpful and free hand in pulling out those of us buried under stress and desperately seeking more time! It won't make you a psychologist but will definitely help you understand the psychology of anxiety and stress.
2017 borgemánnu 2 12:12
Another useful book by professor Piperopoulos. It explains the mysteries of stress and anxiety for those of us not related to the mental health field. It also presents the elusive concept of time in a poetic and yet down to earth handling.

2017 suoidnemánnu 28 12:52
Enlightening and practically useful.
2017 suoidnemánnu 28 12:05
I enjoyed professor Piperopoulos book on school management and I honestly appreciated this little book on managing stress and time. Two almost daily encountered challenges. Simple and useful.
2017 suoidnemánnu 25 12:09
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!
2017 suoidnemánnu 21 13:15
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.
2017 suoidnemánnu 21 12:51
Very useful, refreshingly practical, easy to follow.
2017 suoidnemánnu 13 08:55
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.
2017 suoidnemánnu 4 12:10
Simply said a very useful book!
2017 suoidnemánnu 3 11:31
No mindbogglingly concepts, no scientific incomprehensible jargon. A book that simply and unpretentiously delivers its promise! Easy to read, easy to apply suggestions.
2017 geassemánnu 29 18:21
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!
2017 geassemánnu 28 11:12
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!

2017 geassemánnu 27 10:59
Creatively realistic approach to a real problematic condition for many of us. Easy to follow techniques..
2017 geassemánnu 14 12:05
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.
2017 geassemánnu 14 11:46
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...
2017 geassemánnu 10 12:43
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!
2017 geassemánnu 9 07:41
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.
2017 geassemánnu 6 11:57
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.
2017 geassemánnu 4 12:19
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.
2017 geassemánnu 3 10:50
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.
2017 geassemánnu 1 12:21
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.
2017 miessemánnu 31 11:36
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.
2017 miessemánnu 28 11:19

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.

I strongly recommend it for my students and my associates. It is easy to read and very helpful.

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!

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.

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.

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.
2016 suoidnemánnu 17 13:50
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.
2016 suoidnemánnu 13 16:12
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.
