It contains a thorough battery of self-tests for evaluating your situation; a rundown of the most common work-place stressors; a comprehensive listing of stress-related systems; and a compendium of 20 useful coping techniques. Sounds too good to be true? You should know that every creative stress-management strategy that's explored in these pages has been medically tested - and proven effective - among a wide range of personality types.
