From Publishers Weekly

The first foray into writing from two accomplished gynecologists is all substance but no style. There's a hefty dose of informative, even eye-opening facts about women's health and the negative effect stress has on it. The authors present four stress types based on physical symptoms, and advice targeted at each type. But in the end, there's too much information on too many topics—packaged in the comatose tone of the medical profession. Prescription: take in small doses. (Jan.)

Review

"So Stressed is a gem. It's full of life-saving and practical information all women can use." -- CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, M.D., OB-GYN physician and author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

"Although we think of it as a 'mental' problem, stress manifests in extremely physical ways. It has been proven to shorten one's life while accelerating aging in all organ systems. If your goal is a long, happy, and stress-free life, adopt a loving pet and read So Stressed. An indispensable custom program brilliantly conceived and researched. Highly recommended." -- NICHOLAS PERRICONE, MD, FACN, CNS, anti-aging expert, bestselling author of AGE-less Face, AGE-less Mind; 7 Secrets to Health, Beauty and Longevity; The Perricone Prescription; and The Wrinkle Cure

Format: Hardcover
Every now and then, a book comes along which delivers a simple yet important message in an oh-so-effective manner. This is one of those books. A must read for every hard-working woman out there. As a female and a professional, stress has been a constant in my life. In fact, its absence would come as more of a surprise than its presence -- despite various haphazard measures I've taken to counter stress. This books turns the subject on its head by giving women the tools they need to identify the type of stress in their lives -- aka your stress profile -- and by presenting them with affirmative steps to take to manage that stress. Almost all women like a game-plan. We like to be in charge of our lives. Finally, this book gives us a guide to doing so.

This book is a real life saver. I haven't finished it yet, but what I have read is a much needed reference to my crazy life. Although I recoginize as an individual person, recommendations in a book are of a general nature, I have choosen from the general recommendations for my type that most suit me and already feel more controlled and vital although the pressures and chaos of my life have not changed. I am excited to see what 6 months or a years time of these small changes will yield. Thank you Dr. McClellan and Dr. Hamilton from the bottom of my heart.

I bought this book for my wife about two weeks ago. She's already read it. She had been complaining about stress for a while (a working mom, so it's natural, I guess). Apparently she's the "Hyper-S" type. Obviously, I can't speak from first person (because I didn't read it) but I can say that my wife has been raving about the book for the past week -- and how it's helped her already. So that benefit runs to me - now I'm the good guy instead of causing her stress!

Ignore those reviews below; they're clearly written by people with an agenda.

Format: Hardcover
SO STRESSED is absolutely brilliant. I can't think of a day in recent memory when at least one colleague, friend or relative hasn't said, "Sherry--I feel so damn stressed!" Now, finally, two marvelous women doctors (and who else could have called it?) have pinpointed the probable causes of our erratic weight gains, headaches,digestion problems and other female unpleasantness that up till now, most doctors have told us came from lack of will- power or bad genetic footprints. These lovely doctors have not only diagnosed our major,chronic problems correctly as deriving from stress,stress and more stress but they offer a clear and intelligent plan for coping. I loved this orignial-thinking book; it's written with style and grace and wisdom and, never having met them, I still feel these doctors know me. SO STRESSED owns a permanent place on my book shelf and it's my new favorite gift to my favorite people.

So Stressed is a great book, not too short and not too long. It is easy to understand. It shows me how to identify what kind of stress I have and what I can do to destress. I also watched the interview on Good Morning America and like it when Dr. McClellan mentioned that women are like "water" and we push ourself through the day. By doing so, we are accumulated so much stress. I think it is so true. I always feel fatigue and have back pain at the age of 29, I have my physical exam and everything was normal except my cortisol level. I noticed that I have greater back pain when I were preparing for my finals. In fact, I experienced absence of menstruation last month because I stressed and pushed myself through final exams. After I watched the show, I read the book and found some good advices on nutrition and exercise. I think this book is a good recommendation for everyday living. I am buying a few more books to give to my sister and friends as a special gift.

Format: Hardcover
This book is all about how our busy lives can affect our health...it reminds us that taking a minute for ourselves is not self-indulgent. The authors are giving us a wonderful tool: to take charge of our health now and also live in a way that protects our health for the future. There is wisdom to be found about how we can be our own health advocates.

Every woman is different and the book offers 4 "types" - one of which will resonate with you more than the others (though you'll probably see parts of youself in all of them). The authors give really helpful recommendations for how to sleep, eat, look and feel better based on your type. I found the ideas useful and straightforard.

I highly recommend it.

Format: Hardcover
I actually encountered this book in a Dutch psychology magazine, where they gave the overview of the four different stress types. I was currently out of work, trying to get over a burnout and it clicked immediately. I could point to my stress type, HyperP, and the fact that I had changed into a HypoP due to that burnout. So I bought the book.

The first thing I'd say about the book is that it starts rather technically. The first couple of chapters are on what stress is, how your body reacts to that. It's not simple things like "you get sick more easily" but goes into the hormones and things like that. It was about then that I grabbed my highlighter to keep my focus and be able to find the information I found interesting later. And there is a lot of information in this book. The later chapters get easier to read, but this is something I found I had to sit down and concentrate on.

The information on how to deal with the stress is invaluable. The information is clearly structured, well presented and well explained. When nutrition is discussed, they go all the way into which nutrients you need (minerals, vitamins, etc). When they suggest taking a multi-vitamin to make sure you're getting all of these elements, they also explain how to make sure that the vitamin is correct as these are apparently not regulated in the US (what's on the packaging may not actually be in the vitamin). They talk about so many things that you can do to help yourself, depending on your stress type, but never tell you that you have to or that anything is required. I managed to pick up tons of things I can do to help myself but left ones that just won't work due to my situation, location, etc.
