Editorial Reviews


"Given the pervasive nature of stress in everyone's lives, it is amazing that no major reference work to date has previously focused on this subject. The three-volume Encyclopedia of Stress fills a large gap in the encyclopedic literature of psychology and physiology. The 14 subject areas and 394 articles cover every aspect of stress, from the emotional to the biochemical. Navigation through the volumes is logical and straightforward. ...It is well written and may easily hold the interest of someone who is merely casually browsing. Depth of content is appropriate for undergraduates and graduate students and the professional looking for comprehensive background information. This impressive work addresses an issue fundamental to the quality of life. It would be an excellent addition to the collection of academic, medical, psychological, and public libraries."
"A fantastic endeavour and a very clear idea that manages to combine an academically relevant topic with a socially relevant issue. A really good combination of topics with scientific excellence and social relevance... It is well-written, by many of the world authorities, and accessible, sexy and nicely cross-referenced with related topics and indexing ...There is really nothing like this book."
"...everytime you pick up one of them to look at one article in particular, you'll be perusing them for an hour or two, wondering when you'll find the time to go do more library research on each of the many topics and ideas that caught your attention. These books would be useful in so many venues it is difficult to know what to list. They are clearly enough written that they could be used in medical or psychological service settings for education of both patients and practitioners. Every university library ought to include them, and many psychology and psychiatry departments will definitely want to have copies."
"It provides the most comprehensive and updated survey of research in stress medicine, by leading authors in the field. A must in any medical or psychological library."

This is a must have for any psychiatrist's office or any student. It's BIG and costs a lot but it worth it. Even non-professionals can use and understand it.
