From Library Journal
The author, a psychotherapist specializing in stress management programs for corporate women, identifies the Everything to Everybody syndrome, a syndrome experienced by today's high-achieving woman who suffers stress while trying to excel in both personal life and career. Braiker compares this syndrome to Type A behavior in men. After presenting a self-test that helps readers determine whether they suffer from this syndrome, she goes on to describe some of the false premises that contribute to its development, e.g., denying dependency needs in personal relationships because of the need for self-reliance on the job. Coping tactics and a 21-day program to build stress resistance are also given. Detailing a newly recognized state, the book deserves wide readership. Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, N.Y.
