From Booklist:

Reviewed with Mark Powell's Stress Relief.

Gr. 7-12. These books in the Ultimate Teen Guide series deal with issues related to health and contentment. Insightful and informative, Stress Relief examines the causes of stress most likely to affect teens--dating, homework, tests, relationships with peers and parents, working a part-time job--explaining how teens can recognize and cope with everyday stresses through such methods as meditation and creative visualization. Except for occasional instances when the author's earnest desire to sound hip comes off as corny or phony, the informal, conversational style generally works well, and the book is filled with accessible and practical information. epilepsy, which emphasizes that with proper management, teens with epilepsy live perfectly normal lives, is equally informative and better written. Coauthor McGarrahan, who was diagnosed with epilepsy in his teens, offers personal insight, and there's some interesting historical background that deflates many myths related to the illness. Photographs, charts, and sidebars are effectively used in both books; chapter notes, a glossary, and Web sites are appended. Good choices for both public and school collections. Ed Sullivan
