Amazon.com Review

This follow up to The HeartMath Solution and Transforming Anger reveals how becoming aware of the heart’s innate intelligence can dramatically reduce stress and tension. Based on over thirty years of research showing that it is possible to shift the heart into a "positive rhythm" that signals the brain, causing both of them to synchronize to more effectively respond to stress. In this book, the authors provide readers with the tools to not only respond to stress more resiliently, but to literally transform stress into positive emotions and creative energy. The keys to doing so are the transformative exercises developed by Childre and his team of researchers at the HeartMath Institute. The scientifically-validated techniques they share are easy to understand, and with regular, committed practice, as evidenced by the many illustrative case histories throughout the text, offer many benefits. Far more than just another book on stress management, Transforming Stress offers readers the means to more consciously create joy and contentment in their lives, while regaining the energy and enthusiasm that are normally sapped by life’s daily stresses and tension.--Larry Trivieri Jr.

Format: Paperback
The last two reviewers seem to have read two different books - and none of them are the book that I read!
I only give two stars, because the book did not add much to what I already knew about the HeartMath solution. I own the EmWave and am working hard to recover from serious stress, and here there was too little practical help. In stead, the book is postulative ("after reading this book, you will be cured") so much that you start to wonder if they are trying to hypnotize you to get better.
I still have high hopes for the heart coherence technique, but this book was not the 'home run' I had hoped for. But maybe people who are deeply stressed really need personal coaching by HeartMath 'professionals' in the initial phase?

First, I would suggest to the highly critical, "bashing" reviewer preceeding this review, that they may have missed the message both regarding meditation practice and this book, which contains many pearls of wisdom, such as the distinction between "heart vulnerability," which is healthy, and "emotional vulnerability," which is unhealthy. Yet to absorb these and the many other excellent insights in the book and the heart coherence approach, it is actually necessary to read the entire book with equanimity, i.e, a "non-agitated" mind.

As a practicing clinical psychologist with 30-years of professional experience,and an equal number of years as a practicing meditator, I am profoundly grateful for the distilled wisdom inherent in "Stress Transformation", and I now routinely recommend it to most of my patients. A concise, precise and lucid presentation of "Transforming Stress" that weaves all the threads of our multi-dimensional humanity into a tapestry of beautifully integrated and meaningful "pattern," which greatly aids the digestion and bodily absorption of heart coherence and its rich nutritional value. A treasure of wellbeing and energy transformation... from existing to vibrant heart-centered Living!

The book also inherently highlights significant and profound differences between the heart coherence method, which so efficiently grounds us in our "embodied" multi-sensory experience, immediately promoting authentic wellbeing, and many methods of meditation which are really forms of "manipulative concentration" designed to bring about relaxing and blissful mind states.

HeartMath is a great little company with solid products but their books on solutions for various conditions like stress, anxiety, anger, fear etc are all pretty much the same. Buy 1 and read it and you know the solutions.

I read Doc Childre's first book, "The Heart Math Solution" and thought it was fantastic. A friend of mine recommended , "Transforming Stress" to use with our clients. I found this book to be an easy read, well-laid out, and direct. I've recommended the book to several clients suffering from trauma, stress, and anxiety. I have also used it to train staff in new ways to handle stress. Highly recommended.

Good Advice. Easy to read. Somewhat duplicates the publisher's book on reducing hypertension. I can buy into some of the practical exercise but have trouble visualizing breathing through my heart. But I try. I do feel relaxed.

Format: Paperback
I was astonished to discover that the entire crux of the "heartmath solution" is a very simple, rudimentary instruction in basic meditation. The meditation strategy is simply tarted up in corporate-speak (to obscure the fact that someone's advocating deep breathing to type A executives?) The "heartmath solution" has been explored exhaustively and in much greater, more beneficial detail in any number of excellent books on meditation, and most particularly, insight meditation. There really ought to be a disclaimer here, directing people really interested in meditating to seek other books. I would say that there are about two pages-worth of decent advice in this book--otherwise, it reads like a breathless promo for the "heartmath solution."
