As a registered nurse who was married to a clinical psychologist for 38 years I thought I knew all about the stress factors in my life; that is until I read "Manage Your Stress overcoming stress in the Modern World". I feel that the public too would benefit tremendously from the information given in this book. The tools laid out in this book reveal profound insights to improve anyone's health. My one wish for the younger generation is for them to read this book so as to improve the quality of their lives.In turn this will dramatically effect the quality of life in their offspring. I have passed this book onto my two sons, one a lawyer and the other doctor, to help minimize the chronic stress in their lives and to improve the quality of life for their entire family. We are all taught to work hard at our jobs at an early age, but we're not taught how to reduce the stresses in our lives. I can forsee the information in this book being used as a mandotory course starting at the elementary level all the way through to the college level. The impact would be amazing. What a wonderful world it would be! We would all be happier and more healthy. Thank you, Dr.Shrand! I am applying your suggestions to my daily life.

Joe Shrand's book on stress is must for today's stress-filled world. His connection between stress and his work on respect is important. How many of us have thought about showing respect for others as a tool for reducing not only their stress, but also our own? He has deep sense for the connection between our minds and our emotions, so this book is an important contribution to our abilities to cope with an uncertain and tension-filled world. If you want insights into how you can improve your own ability to manage stress, you don't need to go any farther.
