I have been teaching stress management at the undergraduate level for about three years now and find this book to be an excelent resource for undergraduates. It is very easy to read and gives a great deal of information about the practicle application of stress management techniques. Those who plan on teaching a course in stress management would be well advised to have a good deal of supplementary material on hand as this book is directed toward the intro student and is not informative enough to develop lectures from. This is one textbook that students consistantly give high ratings.

Format: Paperback
Greenberg's latest edition of Comprehensive Stress Management is very easy to follow. With short chapters and a friendly tone, the content is very applicable for college students. I have been using this text in my stress management courses and the students have found it to be quite helpful. The lab exercises at the end of each chapter help the students connect the content to their own lives as they navigate through stress in college. Additionally, providing an extensive and lucid reference list at the end of each chapter is an excellent resource for all students. Although some of my students have found a few of the chapters self-explanatory, Greenberg does an excellent job of encompassing all aspects of understanding stress management.

Fantastic! A book that teachs effective ways of managing stress with out all the mumbo jumbo. I love the assessments provided at the end of each chapter; they help you learn more about yourself (how you handle stress, your personality, and how you react to others). I was required to use this book in a college stress management class, the text definitely help me understand relaxtion techniques and all of the components of stress and relief. It provides plenty of information that is clearly stated and easy to read and understand. I recommend this book to everyone wanting to find more effective and healthy ways of living life.

This is a very comprehensive review of stress management techniques. When combined with an active program of mindfulness meditation, then you will certainly have a winning combination. If you would like to learn more about mindfulness meditation to compliment this book thenI also recommend 'The Path of Mindfulness Meditation' available through Amazon.

I had lost this college textbook on a plane trip and needed a new one quickly. I was very pleased at the price, which was less than the original, and the speed with which I recieved it.

I ordered this book because it was required for a college course I am taking. However, I have found that it is, overall, a good book, in general, to have. It goes into specifics on stress and how to manage it. If you are a stressful person and have a hard time figuring out how to manage it all, this is the book for you! Or even if you have loved ones that you know that have issues with stress or certain ailments, this book goes into what you can do to help.
