When I first saw this book I jumped right on the list to read and review it. Who does not want to learn how to have success with stress right? This was a very quick book to read. In fact I read it in less than two hours. I think I will let what I read sink in a little and probably read it again a second time in a few days. For me it started out a little slow as I was not sure I was going to like it as it had some definitions of stress and what I would call sciency things. But I kept reading and ...more

Life is too short and we should not let stress affects us

This book is so short. You can finished reading it in a short period of time. Though the book is short but the information that will help anybody is very helpful.

I read this book for my husband. I want to help him with his stress. It affects me as his wife. He is so stress about his work. I know that he cannot wait to retire very soon. He has few years left before his agony at work would be over.

I learned one very important lesson from t

This is the second book from Jae Ellard's series of self-help books that I have had a chance to read and review. I enjoyed her first book "The Five Truths About Work-Life Balance" and was interested to read another one in the series.

She begins with defining what stress is and that most kinds of stress can be traced to issues concerning not communicating properly with others as well as not respecting our personal boundaries. She then gives a bit of a scientific background on how the chemicals in

This brief treatment on what stress is and how it affects human life is an excellent introduction to this topic under the broader area of self care. I feel this book would be a valuable addition to any high school curriculum.

Stress is generally perceived as negative strain. The sources are varied and infinite.
How an individual perceives and reacts to stress is more important than the originating source.
This book addresses stress and responses in small bits, offering practical and effective ways

One of the tings I truly loved about Success With Stress by Jae Ellard is the fact that the book was around one hundred pages. The length of the book was perfect for a few hours of reading and learning about stress. As a psychology student I found this book to be particularly interesting. I also found it very helpful because my class just began a unit on stress and I was able some of the information from this book in my forum postings. I liked the fact that the author focused on how to live with ...more

Success With Stress Should be Read Differently. Initially, I was surprised that the book held so much blank space. The author keeps things pretty simple. A page is dedicated to a thought or a simple idea. She asks the reader a lot of questions--and sometimes a question may be the only content of a page. I read the book from cover to cover in about 40 minutes and sat there feeling a little "let down". What did I miss? I missed the opportunities to actually consider each page and each thought of t ...more

I was pleasantly surprised with the workbook style book, with lots of white space for my thoughts and reflections.

The best part of the book for me was the clarity of thought of the author, expressed with so much simplicity, and how it strikes at the root of stress very early on. Sample this powerful statement:
Most stress can be traced to communication - or lack of it - back to the conversations we are not having or are too scared to have about what we value, and/or a lack of boundaries to protec

In today's society, stress is a major fact in each of our lives. Stress is not all bad! This "handy" little book, helps one to decide if he/she is in control of his/her stress level or is the stress controlling in control of him/her. Furthermore, it helps one to know how to be the one to control it!
I particularly liked the statement, "When experiencing stress, do you react or respond?"
Included in this book are things individual's do to void stress but ends up causing greater stress in one's own

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. Receiving the book did not influence my opinions in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.

From a mental health professional's standpoint, this book could have gone into much more detail about stress management techniques. That being said, however, Success with Stress does provide some good information on stress management. I really like that the author poses a couple of questions for reflection after discussing eac

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Success With Stress is a short but sensible book that explains that stress is actually a necessary function of our bodies but chronic stress is not only unhealthy but it can even lead to death. It can cause a multitude of health problems including high blood pressure, anxiety, ulcers and more.

Jae Ellard gives Five Strategies for Success with Stress. They're great strategies and a
