This review is from: Addicted to Stress: A Woman's 7 Step Program to Reclaim Joy and Spontaneity in Life (Hardcover)
I was expecting a well-written work with a warm touch of humor, given Ms. Mandel's credentials; but I was delighted to find so much more. "Addicted to Stress" is not only filled with the latest scientific research on "stress" and why and how it affects we women as it does; this volume is chock full of practical wisdom, useful guidelines, and enough "eureka" moments to make reading it a potentially life-changing event. The self-tests throughout the book are interesting and illuminating. I also enjoyed the private incidents that Ms. Mandel shares with her readers. These examples bring her unique thesis to life, illustrating how the "seven step" program helps the reader reclaim joy and spontaneity. One of the many nuggets that I found enlightening is the distinction Ms. Mandel makes between "force" and "power"--and how the two different elements play out in a person's life. This book contains loads of revealing insights that will help you enjoy life more, live better now, and, as promised, break your (or help some one else break her) addiction to stress.
