Put Stress to Work:Turning Headaches into Advantages, by J. Michael Godfrey, is a comprehensive dissection of stress in people’s lives today, as well as a complete guide directing the reader to reduce and/or eliminate stress on a daily basis. The book describes where stress comes from (most often ourselves!), how our physiology reacts to the stress and the negative effects it can produce over time. Starting from our own personal goals and moving outward, it provides the blueprint for a healthy lifestyle. The book also provides numerous references, helping to base the book in research instead of simply one writer’s opinion.
This is a marvelous book, one which I wish I had read years ago. If ever there could be a book attached to a human being at birth, this should be it. There are many lessons about stress I’ve had to learn along the way without formal instruction, but here it is, readily available to anyone. I found myself reading slowly and carefully to absorb the areas I still need to learn about. Suffice it to say, this is one book I’ll be referring to again and again, and recommending to (or purchasing for) friends and family. Put Stress to Work: Turning Headaches into Advantages by J. Michael Godfrey is a book which will benefit any reader, but I also suggest that for teenagers, trying to gain traction in their lives, this would be a great gift. Starting out with this sort of knowledge could help many young people avoid numerous problems throughout their lifetimes. Highly recommended.
