Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author, Robert M. Sapolsky, has done a super job with this book. There a lot of research that was used to write it and it provides a balanced view point on stress and other subjects giving due regards to the state of the art.

For a laymen like me, this book was a mouthful. Yet, the author did an excellent job to introduce the medical terminology and the concepts, gradually, as you progress, and by the time I was through the book, I was surprised as to how much I had learned. I certainly will go back to it periodically so I don't loose what I've learned.

I think that this book is well worth buying and studying. It provides a lot of valuable advice that you can use to maintain and improve your health in a number of ways.

Thumbs up for Professor Sapolsy!

This is an excellent popularization of the science surrounding how we respond to stress. Sapolosky strikes a wonderful chord by providing excellent summaries of what the research tells us on the key points. As well, he has an excellent sense of humour and knows when to insert his trademark phrase, "What's Up With That?
