Idiots are Invincible by Angelo Rodafinos, PhD. is a book of gems, the opening page itself coming up with the first one: “I couldn’t become an Olympic winner because worrying was not an event.” This book, especially suited for such people, is organized into three parts, the first one dealing with the definition, nature and source of stress. This is then followed by techniques of coping with stress with an introduction to the author’s Ro method, followed by the third part which introduces a hero, Don Stressote, who has mastered these techniques, and whose response to stress is used to illustrate and exemplify the techniques to be adopted for the practical application of the Ro method.
Idiots are Invincible by Angelo Rodafinos, PhD. is a pleasure to read. With illustrations setting a lighter mood for discourse and the language offering a touch of humor, it is quite likely that the reader may not feel this as a book about stress. It is here that I found the next gem: “The human body has no known sense that can feel stress, and in fact what we are feeling is our response to stress.” I agree with the author’s view that many times we need to take a break and re-examine the meaning of an activity. We may then very well discover that our motives for engaging in it are somewhat – or even entirely – different to what we initially thought. This is an excellent book that presents new ideas in clear, concise terms.
