This is the “bible” of stress management books, a complete wholistic approach (mind-body-spirit-emotions) which is long overdue in the health profession. Reading this book is like having a conversation with a wise old sage. The CD of four relaxation exercises is wonderful. What a calming voice.

This book is well worth every penny and provides its reader with myriad inventive strategies on confronting and coping with stress. One such strategy is art therapy. I highly recommend that every person committed to a lifeway of health consider purchasing this book. Walk in Beauty, ANP
Managing Stress is one of the best textbooks I have seen and should be required reading at every school. The reason I enjoy the book so much is because it presents a whole new way of seeing stress – stress reframed from a positive, enlightened perspective. The book is such a comprehensive volume of information, including just enough of all the most important topics related not only to stress, but to mind-body health in general, as much as any author can encapsulate in such a huge, broad, and growing field.
Managing Stress is so good because Seaward helps readers and students recognize an important need in our culture for embracing a broader perspective of wellness, one that encompasses and touches every nuance of life including business, education, the arts, government, and so on.
Wellness is certainly not solely about taking care of the body, it is perhaps even more importantly about taking care of the mind and spirit. This book is endlessly full of great supporting holistic mind-body health research and tidbits, including fascinating studies proving the efficacy of the stress-management modalities provided. Through the study of this text alone I believe one can develop an in-depth knowedge of not only mind-body health, but of the whole human condition, what it means to be a human being. I cannot think of too many other books that I can make that statement about.
If you want to learn how to change your life, study this text in-depth, and then choose topics from it you are most interested in, and delve into them using many of the additional resources provided. Yet, perhaps most importantly, learn to put these techniques into practice and then you will find not only the jewel of analytical knowledge, but,even more, the crowning jewel of wisdom and enlightenment.
