This book is excellent because the author deals definitively with the classic "stressors" in the lives of most students. The presentation provides practical coping strategies to identify stress and deal with it in a timely and constructive manner. There is coverage of the breathing techniques for greater oxygenation, as well as strategies to handle limited time and seemingly hostile peers and relevant others.
The book advises students to do the following: o be assertive so that we have the time to attend to priorities o build personal relationships o take calculated risks in our decision-making o make decisions over analysis paralysis o stay healthy because we cannot do difficult sustained work unless we are healthy o deal with fear constructively and within the bounds of people and things we can control
Overall, the volume would be a tremendous resource in order to assist students with personal planning at school and elsewhere.
