Recommends it for: the stressed out and addicted
Original review posted at Layer of Thought.

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.

About: Written primarily by Dr. Balasa Prasad, a practicing psychiatrist who has developed his Turning Point Plan over 30 plus years. In the book he highlights the human burdens of stress on our physical bodies a

Stress? Oh yes, I have that. In fact, loads of it. So when if there's a few pointers out there to help me alleviate some, I'm on it. I've read a book by Preetham Grandhi before, but it was non-fiction, not a self-help book. That book, though, used some of his personal work as a foundation for the story. So I knew that he would know what he was talking about and looked forward to some insight.

Recommended to Story of Choice by: LibraryThing Member Giveaways
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.
