Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bernstein, a former protégé of self-help guru Byron Katie and a consultant to Fortune 500 corporations, thinks stress is produced not by external circumstances but by mistaken thoughts. He has developed the seven-step ActivInsight program to combat these thoughts and banish stress and related feelings of depression, despair, anger, and frustration. Really a form of cognitive therapy, ActivInsight involves framing a should statement that expresses your stress (they should agree with me), evaluating the feelings that accompany it, and then framing its opposite, no matter how counterintuitive it sounds. One must then set out to prove the counterstatement (I should be here [in drug rehab] because I need help) and examine again the feelings it elicits and the actions it could lead to (e.g., participation). Chapter by chapter, Bernstein takes on various stress-inducing thoughts—I should weigh less; I should be successful; I shouldn't have done that—and shows how to let the air out of them. His program seems to involve formulaic thinking rather than genuine self-examination, and to ignore the plain truth that certain situations (like losing a job) are indeed stressful. (May 4)

Review

"The Myth of Stress is a compelling, compassionate book about our suffering when we fight reality and the transformation that is possible when we don't. I loved it."

- Geneen Roth, author of When Food Is Love and Women Food and God

"Andrew Bernstein has brought some much needed common sense to the subject of stress and that alone makes this book a winner."

-- Caroline Myss, author of Defy Gravity and Invisible Acts of Power

"Bernstein has created a wonderful, accessible how-to manual for regular people wanting to feel better. This WORKS!"

--Kathleen DesMaisons, Ph.D., author of Potatoes Not Prozac

"Bernstein's volume is an outstanding guide to understanding the nature of stress and how to handle it.  The book provides numerous insights and techniques for anyone experiencing stress -- and who doesn't?"

 -- Aaron T. Beck, M.D., founder of Cognitive Therapy

"We often think we have to avoid or reduce stress.  The Myth of Stress teaches you not to “manage stress” but to root out the very causes of stress, the tangled thinking that keeps you stuck in the belief the world has to change for you to be happy.  Andrew Bernstein guides us through a way to untangle those thoughts and be free. Read this book and it will change your life and you will find your happiness will depend on only one thing ? YOU."

--Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times best-selling author of The UltraMind Solution
