"I hope this book helps you help yourself live with female stress so that you can manage it rather than have it manage you. Knowledge is power, so read on." —Dr. Georgia Witkin

In this new Third Edition updated to address 21st-century concerns, the noted stress expert, psychologist, author, and TV commentator has thoroughly revised and expanded her classic bestseller, which has sold over 200,000 copies and been translated into 9 languages. "New stresses, such as mastering the computer or kids returning home, have not replaced the old stresses—just multiplied them," Dr. Witkin writes. She shows us how we can learn to cope and conquer, helps us identify "the female stress syndrome," teaches us to use stress to our advantage, and, most important, she describes clearly many proven physical and mental techniques for successful stress management.

Comprehensive and thoughtful, refreshingly honest, spiced with real-life anecdotes, quizzes, checklists, and a "female stress questionnaire," Dr. Georgia Witkin covers a wide range of concerns for women of all ages, including chapters on family, love and sex, teens, aging, men, and much more.
