4.5 stars actually.

It’s a “tell-it-like-it-is,” down to earth, concise yet readable book which persuades the reader into accepting the true nature of our world (it’s brutal out there) and then choosing a “turning point” to create a happier life.

I have mixed feelings about this book. The authors are sincere, experienced, and offer some useful frames for discussing stress. However, they present debatable assertions as insufficiently supported empirical claims. The writing, while immature, is satisfactory for the subject matter but the content, while supported with interesting case histories, fails to inspire confidence.
