Review by

This book was recommended to me by a general practice physician. I was skeptical about relaxation and stress management techniques having any real effect, and I have an aversion to anything resembling eastern or new-agey meditation. However, I learned a couple of useful tricks from this book, primarily the ones that in effect intercept the body's fight-or-flight mechanism.
