We seem to be living through an epidemic of stress. Thousands of therapists, counselors and healers are devoted to protecting-and perhaps even saving-us from a disease that they say debilitates, and even kills.

Every year millions of dollars are committed to fighting stress. But are these efforts really combating stress? From symptoms to cure, in this brilliant reassessment Angela Patmore raises important questions about the way we treat a condition that has become central part of modern living. Its conclusions will cause us to profoundly reappraise the way we understand our own health and well-being.

About the Author:

Angela Patmore is a former University of East Anglia research fellow and International Fulbright Scholar. Her first book, Sportsmen Under Stress (1986), was The Times's sports books of the year. A former Guardian columnist on the psychology of sport, she writes extensively for newspapers and magazines and has contributed to many television and radio programs on stress.

Review:

An intelligent book that cuts through the jargon put about by drug companies and the media alike. * Rise * Patmore's book is a welcome antidote... It is time to accept that stress theory has gone too far. * Daily Telegraph * Patmore's erudition and industry are impressive, as is her range of reference - from Aristotle to T. S. Eliot. * Sunday Telegraph * The more Patmore writes, the more I like her... Her writing is full of fire and her examples of stress accoutrements are wonderfully wry. * New Statesman *
