As the subtitle implies, Canadian physician and lecturer Hanson writes about stress as it applies to the workaday world. Following the ideas introduced in his best-selling The Joy of Stress , Hanson argues that stress is a part of everyone's life; it is the individual's reaction to stress that makes the difference. He discusses the stress of facing public speaking, mergers and acquisitions, new technologies, and business travel, and also considers the problems like workaholism and substance abuse. His clear, concise style coupled with wit, Hanson successfully tackles a subject that has been covered by many other authors and offers practical solutions to making stress work for you.-- Marguerite Mroz, Baltimore Cty.
