At last I have had an opportunity to read this book recommended by friends. I consider the time well worth the effort, especially since the latter was mitigated by the excellent writing style of the author: concise, suscinct and yet easy to comprehend. Many of my peers are, yes, stressed. I am sure my copy will be well worn, and I plan to give this book to some of those who might best benefit for a holiday present. Good luck to the author. May she continue her good work, and we shall be looking for future studies in this or related areas.

This book makes you analyze how stress is viewed. I used to believe that in order to feel more alive, I needed to reduce all the stress in my life; certainly that's what the other books on the topic suggested. However, given the pace of life these days, this isn't realistic and in fact can be harmful in some ways. This book made me think about more effectively utilizing stress in both my professional and personal life. I would recommend this book to all women who have been frustrated reading other "stress management" books.

My cursory review of the book stimulated a careful reading. I found Dr. Ravicz' book to be well conceived, well researched and exceptionally well written for a 'popular' book. It should be required reading for groups, couples, and -of course - for those individuals who for financial reasons have to 'work it out' alone. Men could benefit also, but the focus on woman leaves us with a joy of challenge, not a fear of working on our problems! Right on, Dr. Ravicz! Your degrees suggest we should have more from you!

We found "High on Stress" to be heads and shoulders above the usual book. Not only does it carry a more positive and helpful message,it also places the exercises in their contexts with respect to reseach. My friends and I are interested in applying the exercises the author suggests. We, a couple of friends and I, are appreciative of her good work. We look forward to hearing more from Simone Ravicz! Thank you. KAtherine.
