This book is a 360 degree view of stress: causes, symptoms and possible options to handle it. Viewed from multiple angles (anthropologic, psychologic, sociologic, anatomic, economic and evolutionary, among others), the text provides a modern explanation of the root cause of the disease that plagues the XXi century world, including heart disease, cancer and cardiovascular disorders.

There are a few chapters (midway through the book) that are heavy in terms of scientific content; the rest of the chapters are approachable and amenable to the reader.

Most of the contents center around causes and symptoms, so do not expect recipes or magic solutions to stress problems. It is always better to understand the issue first, so you can propose solutions. Recommended.

this is only a reference copy which anyone who wants to borrow this book should note.

I'll save you a couple of hours of time that you'd spend reading this book. Get lots of sleep, eat a balanced diet, get lots of exercise, don't self medicate and don't worry, be happy and you'll be fine. Otherwise, you'll die. End of book. Oh, by the way, Zebras, like all members of the Equid family, do get ulcers. Ask any equine vet.
