    If you work in a field that involves stress management, as I do, or if you have been experiencing a stressful time, you want this book in your collection. It is an excellent, all inclusive book on both understanding and managing stress. The five-step plan is simple and effective. The authors are interesting, knowledgeable and well-spoken. My only grievance with the book (and it's a small one), is the title. One doesn't need to be in crisis to appreciate and gain from this book.

My only grievance with the book (and it's a small one), is the title. One doesn't need to be in crisis to appreciate and gain from this book. The information is useful in everyday life, as well, in order to ensure the small stressors in life do not turn into chronic stress with time. If you are looking for a book on stress management, do yourself a favor, and get a copy of this book. You'll be glad you did.

    This book wasn’t quite what I expected, but it was definitely worth reading. It is more about learning how to respond effectively to stressful situations than how to heal, although there are some recommended lifestyle changes that will promote healing. The authors take turns writing different sections of the book, each in their own conversational style. The effect is a bit like having a conversation with two helpful friends sharing stories over a cup of coffee. The book starts with a chapter pro This book wasn’t quite what I expected, but it was definitely worth reading. It is more about learning how to respond effectively to stressful situations than how to heal, although there are some recommended lifestyle changes that will promote healing. The authors take turns writing different sections of the book, each in their own conversational style. The effect is a bit like having a conversation with two helpful friends sharing stories over a cup of coffee. The book starts with a chapter providing a brief, easy to understand explanation of how stress affects your health. Most of the rest of the book focuses on the authors’ five-step model for responding to crises or other stressful situations. First they explain the model, and then they provide five chapters narrating how people have used the five steps in various stressful situations. The narratives can become a bit repetitive, but they are helpful examples for how to use the five steps in different situations. These are stressful times, and most people could probably benefit from the stress management suggestions this book provides. I was provided an unproofed ARC through NetGalley that I volunteered to review.

    Thanks to Kensington for providing this ebook via a Goodreads giveaway. This guide provided a lot of practical advice and was written with humor and warmth. The authors suggested a 5 step model to deal with a crisis, but I believe it could work with stress in general: 1. Define the problem and what the meaning is to you personally. 2. List the items you can control, what you can't control and what you can do about things you can't control. 3. Find motivation and opportunity to get to work on #2. 4.

Reflect on life, simplify and be kind to your self. (I was glad to see the authors emphasized activities to deal with physical needs.) 5. Hold on to positives and let go of negatives. There were a lot of examples showing how to work through this model. Personally, I didn't see much new information based on the reading I do, but for people who don't read a lot of self-help/mental health, this would be a great resource.

    A clear-eyed approach to understanding the psychological reactions to and consequences of stress, the dual-author narrative makes an easy read for those looking to find self-solutions to complicated problems. The second half of the book lays out anecdotal examples that explain how to apply the authors' approach in a way that is thorough and relatable.

    Topical and informative for a time when even those of us with normally reasonable stress management skills need some additional support. Practical advice that can be easily implemented without creating additional stressors for those seeking guidance.

    This was an interesting book, but not quite what I was expecting. I think the layout of the book reads like a novel which wasn’t what I thought it would be like. Thank you NetGalley for my complimentary copy in return for my honest review.
