Description

33% of Americans and 35% of British people feel they are living with extreme stress. One in five Germans experiences stress on a regular basis. 60% of China’s white-collar workers admit to suffering stress-related issues, and workplace stress costs the Australian economy $14.2 billion dollars annually. Stress is a global pandemic that is increasingly proven to be a direct precursor to a large range of non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, ulcers, depression, and abdominal obesity. The Science of Stress is a trustworthy reference of established fact that explains the current scientific understanding of stress in clear concise summary. From why some stress is useful and how one can be sick with nerves, to understanding fear and explaining voodoo death, this book leads the reader through the many obvious and not so obvious ways our stress responses affect our minds and bodies.
