Grade 7 Up. In the first two chapters of this book, Adler reviews selected scientific research on stress and defines the three primary types that teens frequently experience: major life transitions, enduring life stress, and chronic daily stress. She then expounds on them in the following chapters. The book concludes with two practical chapters offering advice on measuring and preventing stress. Overall, the author does a sufficient job of explaining its physical, emotional, mental, and behavioral aspects; however, the flow of information sometimes seems disjointed. This is due to numerous charts and lists that are poorly placed and unreferenced within the text, and to occasional shifts between second and third person. In spite of these problems, teens might be drawn to the vignettes used throughout to illustrate the signs and symptoms of stress and various coping strategies. A useful section lists other resources and support organizations. This title might fill a void in some collections, especially those in which other volumes in this series are useful. Other titles to consider are Laurie Beckelman's Stress (Crestwood, 1994), which is more clearly written, or Kathy McCoy and Charles Wibbelsman's more comprehensive Life Happens (Berkley, 1996).?Sheila G.
