"There seems to be little consensus as to what stress is, let alone how to best manage it. Dr. Linden makes a good case for how his approach can shed some light onto this important topic. For me, the greatest strength of the book is that a respected scientist such as Dr. Linden is undertaking this project. He has an impressive publication record that shows a professional lifetime of dedication to work that relates favorably to the subject matter of the book."
"Overall, the book has some positive merits, most notably its attempt to apply an integrative theory to practice….The primary strength is the use of a process model to address stress management….I would consider this text in a graduate course in stress management."
"The author brings a needed perspective-a social, cultural and economic stress-to the literature and to treatment, too."
"Professor Wolfgang Linden has undertaken the formidable task of reviewing and integrating a vast and fragmented body of literature on stress management. He has successfully created a very readable, comprehensive, and integrative account of this diverse field. This book brings together many perspectives on stress management and Professor Linden skillfully constructs a valuable and more integrated theory of stress management. The result is an informative, thought provoking, scholarly book for students, researchers, and practitioners in the field of stress management.
Good text for examining elements of stress management (individual and organizational level) and suitable for undergrad students. Perhaps not enough detail about stress itself, stressors, stress reactions etc to be adopted as a core text.
Excellent easy to follow book with case studies and good reflection opportunities.
It is a book well done. The chapters are well delineated. The book describes very well what is stress, burnout and ways to cope with stress. Is a good book.
A good supplemental text to support final year students in their preparation for professional practice.
I came across many books which evaluate individual stress responses but lacks a critical review of the scientific foundation of stress. This particular book has given a clear scientific evidence and the author have examined the elements of stress. I strongly recommend this to my students and colleagues..
It is recommended for Practical Life and suits present generation
Excellent book. Perfect for this course. Explains Stress, recognition etc very well.
