Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

The first foray into writing from two accomplished gynecologists is all substance but no style. There's a hefty dose of informative, even eye-opening facts about women's health and the negative effect stress has on it. The authors present four stress types based on physical symptoms, and advice targeted at each type. But in the end, there's too much information on too many topics-packaged in the comatose tone of the medical profession. Prescription: take in small doses. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

From Library Journal:

As OB-GYNs, McClellan and Hamilton have seen firsthand the destructive effects of stress on their female patients. Their goal with this book is to teach women to control and manage their response to stress. The authors have determined that women respond to stress in four basic ways, or "stress-response patterns." Their book enables readers to figure out which stress type they are and find the right techniques to apply to return to a healthier state. The authors looked at the most recent scientific studies regarding women and stress and compiled them in a comprehensive and clear package that explains what stress actually does to the mind and body from a medical point of view and how to combat stress through restorative sleep, relaxation techniques, proper nutrition, and exercise. The resulting book offers practical advice, which, if followed, should reduce the tremendous damage that stress does to our bodies, including heart disease, eating disorders, gynecological problems, chronic pain, depression, and asthma. Verdict Every woman who feels that stress is making them sick should read this informative, well-written, and easy-to-understand book to grasp what is happening to their body and how to fight back.-Mary E.
