Review:

"Yes, I really liked the "For Reflection" part of the chapter. They allow for critical thinking and provide the student a chance to take what they had just read and put it into real-world context. It also breaks up the monotony of simply reading lecture material. It provides a breather for the student and allows for integration of lecture material into practical application. The "Voice of Stress Management" stories also add a great deal to understanding the concept or topic being covered. This section gives the readers a personal perspective of what an individual may be experiencing as they cope with stress."

"Chapter 11: This chapter was very well written and organization in a reasonable manner. Excellent explanation of topics such as how smoking impacts stress. This is just one example but the examples were very thorough and easy to understand throughout the chapter. Appropriate examples were throughout the chapter to paint a clearer picture for the reader. I also liked the self-assessment at the beginning of the chapter ~ I think it is very important that students assess and think about how the topics impact their level of stress. I feel there was an appropriate balance between the presentation of theory and concepts and inclusion of applicable information".

"The main strength of the chapter [Chapter 3] is the information and emphasis as life as a developmental process with specific stages with age ranges and developmental tasks for each stage. These are presented clearly in the light of the stressors inherent in each stage."
