The subject of this book can be found in the title, and even more so in the subtitle. This is a practical book of-60 short chapters that can be dipped into, for a brief read, whether in a doctor's surgery, sitting on the train or before going to bed at night. While the topic is serious, the content is, for the most part, light and entertaining. This book offers a menu of strategies on how to cope with the stress that most of us experience in our daily lives. The reader will be encouraged to be their own therapist and decide which strategies work best for them.
