The Joy of Stress is one of the best books this reviewer has come across in a lifetime. Hanson breaks each area of life down and explains in a pleasant, sometimes humorous manner, how the normal, and not so normal stresses that are met in everyday life can be handled positively by anyone who would like to follow his advice. Hanson has used Dr. HansSelye's general adaptation response to stress in explaining the anatomy of stress. The author reinforces Selye's theories, but goes on to apply them more factually and graphically (by the use of pictures on almost every page) to his own theories. Of the five appendices, three deal with balanced diet, one of the most important aspects in the study of health today. Recommended reading for senior students and public libraries.
