From Publishers Weekly:

"In this book," writes Hanson, "I will show you how to actively choose to have the stress of your work life bring you conquest instead of carnage." But if Hanson is an expert on stress--this is his second book on the subject, following The Joy of Stress --why do his ideas seem so tired? There is little here that hasn't turned up countless times in magazines, newspapers or on television. Do people really still need to be told what a workaholic is and why it's bad to be one? Or, to give one example from his chapter on stress and travel, that it's a bad idea to leave packing for a business trip to the last minute? Regardless, corporate America apparently listens closely to what Hanson has to say--he gives numerous lectures and workshops on stress around the country. Perhaps his well-worn observations and Rotary Club humor enjoy an impact in person that they lack in print. Illustrated. Author tour.

From Library Journal:

As the subtitle implies, Canadian physician and lecturer Hanson writes about stress as it applies to the workaday world. Following the ideas introduced in his best-selling The Joy of Stress , Hanson argues that stress is a part of everyone's life; it is the individual's reaction to stress that makes the difference. He discusses the stress of facing public speaking, mergers and acquisitions, new technologies, and business travel, and also considers the problems like workaholism and substance abuse. His clear, concise style coupled with wit, Hanson successfully tackles a subject that has been covered by many other authors and offers practical solutions to making stress work for you.
