Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(8), 667. Reviews the book, Stress, distress and growth by Walt Schafer (1978). Intended as a book to “help people of all ages make the stresses and strains of everyday life work for them rather than against them,” this guide to selfmanagement is appropriate for both individuals and groups, help seekers and students. Its popularized style of presentation belies the thorough grounding of basic concepts and principles in Selye's conceptions of health, stress, distress, and disease. This book will find a large readership among educated victims of today's professional, economic, and familial pressures. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
