Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 933. Reviews the book, The Stress of Life, Rev. ed by Hans Selye (1978). In the preface, the author states that the book is intended to be a simplified summary of contemporary views on the scientific basis of the entire stress concept as it applies to any field, and that the book was written to enable the educated nonmedical reader and the practicing physician not specially trained in research, to make up his own mind about the validity of our applications of laboratory experience to everyday problems. The author has fulfilled both of these goals reasonably well. The presentation of scientific material is limited, and the book can be read and understood by any intelligent person with a high-school degree and an interest in the subject.
