From the Publisher
Annotation Part pure science and part humor, this book by stress expert Robert Sapolsky maintains that humans just were not cut out to deal with the stress of modern life. Citing scientific studies of animals and their reactions to stress impulses, Sapolsky posits the theory that humans are physically constructed to handle short-term adrenaline rushes, and not long-term, chronic stress that seems to be the nature of human existence today. Sapolsky immerses the reader in an alarming discussion about the connection between anxiety, depression, and actual responses in the body that can cause disease and illness. An ample sprinkling of Far Side comics throughout the book shows Sapolsky recognizes that it does no good to despair. It might actually make things worse.
Editors Note A distinguished primatologist explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including ulcers, colitis, heart disease, depression, and memory loss, and addresses how to combat it.
