Stress is something we all experience. But research suggests that adolescents are affected by it in unique ways that can increase impulsivity and risky behaviors. While eliminating stress from life isn’t realistic, young people can learn to control how they respond to it. This book offers proven techniques that teens can use to deal with stressful situations in school, at home, and among friends. They’ll find current information on how stress affects health and decision making and learn stress-management skills to handle stress in positive ways—including assertiveness, positive self-talk, time management, relaxation exercises, and much more. Filled with interesting facts, student quotes, and fun activities, this book is a great resource for any teen who’s said, “I’m stressed out!”

I read its older edition back at school in my 10th grade, and I had to face up with a lot of problems at the time, with my peers.
This is probably one of the best books one must read as a student.
thought this was on tigers at first, but as I read through, I felt so happy about it.The more I read it, the more I felt like reading this book.I had borrowed it from the library for a week, but due to the way it made me read and feel happy, I kept it another week, and even recommended it to our librarian, so every student in our school can read it.
For those who feel stressed and faithless, PLEASE READ this!

I bought this book myself years ago, and thought it was great, and when my own son was having problems, I got it for him and we read it together. I even emailed the author, to tell him how helpful his book had been, and amazingly he wrote back, answering my questions, several times! Earl Hipp is a great guy, explains things simply so teens can understand what he's talking about, and he makes sense. I've been working in the field for a long time, and I would use this book with adults too, because although it's simple, it's got a lot of real basic truth in a very easy, approachable, and sometimes very funny format. I loved this book!
