Although Mr. Hart is a Christian, it isn't until the last chapter that he writes about Christianity's effect on reducing stress. This is intentionally and effectively done. Nonetheless, I found this book incredibly informative with lots of practical advice well explained. I immediately realized why it took me the first four days of a vacation to settle down and why I tend to have a stress headache on most saturdays. I have intentionally tried a few of his suggestions and they work. I recommend this book to anyone, especially those who have been accused of being type A. I am not type A and I am a Christian. I found this book very enjoyable.

When I began experiencing bizarre physical symptoms several years ago, I began getting very frightened. Cancer? MS? Lupus? Brain tumor?

Test after medical test showed me to be quite healthy, with no discernable problems. When doctors suggested "stress," I dismissed it as a junk diagnosis, thinking "why don't you just say you don't know instead of blaming stress for everything." Turns out, though, that they were right.

Stress is much, much worse for us than previously imagined. It does not just affect us primarily mentally or with the occassional headache or indigestion...it can profoundly alter our body to the point of near disability. I know -- because it has happened to me.

This book came as a godsend in helping me understand what was happening to my body, and why. It was the book that opened my eyes to the connection between stress and the adrenal glands, and the profound affect that prolonged exposure to stress can have on our hormonal system. Many physicians poo-poo the idea that the adrenals can eventually become exhausted because they reason that adrenaline goes up (not down) when the body is under stress. Hart shows that while such reasoning is correct, it is only half correct. Eventually, the body can no longer sustain the continual demand for over-production of adrenaline and the body will crash. When that happens, the physical results are profoundly severe.

Although Hart spends less time in the book dealing with the most serious stage of stress exhaustion - adrenal depletion - he was the first author that alerted me to this very real condition, and hence helped me on my journey to finding out what was wrong and how to get much-needed help for recovery from a debilitating condition.

Well informed, somewhat technical read. Teaches what stress really is and the impact on our whole life: physical, emotional, personal, professional. Helps one to learn to calm down and handle difficulties with more finesse by being more aware of our blood pressure, heart rate, anxiety level, etc. The result? When practiced properly: happiness has room to grow as well as peace of mind and deeper confidence/competence in meeting deadlines and many of the endless demands upon us.

I received my first copy of this book several years ago while I was enduring tons of stress. Not only did this book help me to identify with the adrenaline/stress issues, but it pointed to a way out. Yes, I found it helpful that every bit of helpful advice does not have to come in a bottle of pills; though I am not knocking medications for needed issues. Stress is something that we can choose to perceive as impending doom, or a little skip in the road. Archibald Hart does a very nice job showing how some Biblically related principles can help one to overcome stress. We were not wired for all of this anhedonia in the first place.

I would hesitate to have a few of my "Type H" friends read this book at certain times. Hostile or hyper people are sometimes hoping to keep their adrenaline pumped for reasons of performance, and they are many times not worried about future problems that may result from this. They sure would be the fist to benefit from this, and I hope many will take the subtle information to heart. It is worth the timeless details of sorting thru, as one can still see that adrenaline is killing us in many ways. It does have many functions, but not at the levels and seemingly addicted ways of being maintained.

Adrenaline junkies may actually find this book interesting. It won't keep you from loving your sport or adventure, but perhaps managing a few issues that friends or family have been hesitating to tell you!!

Yes, this is a Christian directed book, but it does not have to serve believers only. I would see very little that would upset a totally secular audience, and actually have been a little less interested in a few of Archibald's meditation ideas. Those do not appeal to me quite as much, as it really seems more important to get to the root of the problem. The Stressor does not always have to be avoided or thrown out, rather looked upon with a healthy perspective.
Yeah, now that is getting to the root of the issue.

My doctor referred this book to me as part of my pain-management program, to make sure I was properly dealing with the stress and anxiety I was feeling due to my condition. It was a revelation to me that positive stress has just as much an effect on your health as negative stress. As someone who thrives on projects and challenges and finds relaxing a royal waste of my time here on earth, this was a wakeup call. As a Christian, I particularly enjoyed this book, but people from any faith will benefit from this book, as it is soundly scientific. Our bodies were made for physical and spiritual Sabbaths to reboot! So now I am learning to take time to meditate and relax and give my body time to recover from the excitement of projects and deadlines. I am already sleeping better!
