For most of us, life has become such a pressure cooker of unrealistic expectations, information overload, relentless marketing, and workaholism that we spend our days stressed out over being stressed out. Renowned stress coach and humorist Loretta LaRoche makes us see the wisdom of a more civilized time, when no one carried a cell phone during a peaceful walk on the beach. This book takes an honest and hilarious look at the gizmos, self-help regimes, comfort products, nutrition plans, and sexual freedoms that we believe will make our lives better. She shows us that in many ways, they're filling our lives with more stress and keeping us isolated from the thing that maters most in any healthy life: real human connection.
