The Handbook of Stress Science is an excellent resource. Though the general area of stress and health encompasses a wide range of subtopics, this book covers them extremely well. It's coverage includes many chapters that deal in detail with aspects of each of the following subjects: the various molecular and physiologic pathways that mediate the effects of psychologic stress on hard health outcomes, environmental and sociologic effects on health and health behaviors, health-relevant factors located within the person (e.g., emotion, personality, individual differences), and the effects of behavior on health outcomes. In addition, there is a large section on research strategies as applied to stress science that details critical methodologic issues. Browsing the list of contributors reveals that they are among the most active and preeminent researchers in the field. This is a terrific book that successfully boils down a vast topic area to present the most relevant issues necessary for becoming knowledgeable in any of the many subjects it covers.
Finally an up to date text, which is worth its weight in gold. Well written and at an appropriate graduate level. I keep it on my easy to reference shelf by the desk. I've found it useful in other classes as well. Again secondary reference because it is a book, but I'd be missing something with out it. I love this topic.
