KIRKUS REVIEW

A translation and popular treatment of the lessons of ""medical research"", and in particular the work of Hans Selye who contributes the introduction here, predicates that nervous heart disease can be prevented if you spot the start of stress-decay early. Kerner provides simple explanations of the physiology of the heart, the causes- and types- of heart disease, the stress syndrome (alarm, resistance, exhaustion), and the many physical and emotional situations in daily life which lead to stress; along with your on-the-job tensions, worry, fatigue, boredom, hostility, dissatisfaction. He makes further definite recommendations on acquiring proper sleep patterns, slowing down, cushioning shock and strain... For the less informed, a valid guide to more healthful patterns of living in terms which are practicable and easily accessible.
