A strength of this book is that it offers a broad range of possible actions you can take to reduce stress. He included self-evaluation exercises to trigger interest and mobilize the reader to change some of his or her noxious behavior. As a Manager, I find it to be an effective way to avoid frightening my personnel into denial or apathy, as many times happens when I ask them to quit smoking cigarette, for instance.
You may be wondering why I wrote this review for a book written so long ago. Allow me ask you this, would you avoid reading the Bible or listening to Ludwig van Beethoven's 9th Symphony in D minor, Op. 125? Of course not. The correct criteria is not time span, rather meaningfulness of content. By the way, if you have been swamped and stressed, perhaps it's time to pick up this book and read it.
"In Stress and the Manager, you will see how businesses of all kinds are paying the price of the constantly growing cost of the physical and emotional problsms that result from chronic stress. Dr. Albrecht shows how managers can utilize a variety of organizational problem-solving resources to stem the rising financial and personal toll of executive heart attacks, alcoholism, drug abuse, and other employee 'problems' that cost business money and time.
"You will slso learn how you can-on your own-avoid self-induced stress, cope with unavoidable environmental stress, change the behavior patterns that make you a candidate for a heart attack, and use the proven techniques in this book to redesign your life for low-stress living."
