A study conducted at Brandeis University estimates that the total economic cost of smoking, drinking, and drug use was a "staggering" $238 billion in 1990 alone. With the huge medical cost attributable to stress related illnesses and the complications of HMO bureaucracy, there is a move toward scientifically sound self-help programs for alleviating stress. The 10-Step Method of Stress Relief: Decoding the Meaning and Significance of Stress is a revolutionary approach to stress management. It presents simple, self-help guidelines that help you efficiently relieve stress. This self-paced book instructs you on the effective ways of finding the causes of stress, learning its meaning, and interpreting its messages and significance. The methods defined show you how to reduce stress by increasing alertness and perception. The book explains the difference between physical danger and concept danger and its crucial implications for stress relief. The percept method of stress relief teaches individuals to decode the message stress wants to deliver without using psychologically avoidant modalities or suppressive substances such as drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and food. As the message is received by the cerebral cortex and understood, the noxious symptoms begin to mitigate naturally. The 10-Step Method of Stress Relief can also help alleviate personal stress by teaching the perceptual/informational/protective function of stress, and how to use Emotional Literacy to find the stressor, understand the meaning and significance of that stressor, and recognize the stress feeling evoked by that stressor. This is not just another book on stress, but it is a new system, a new approach that can revolutionize stress management and self-help programs by introducing a new way to view stress. The 10-Step Method of Stress Relief: Decoding the Meaning and Significance of Stress is a tremendously valuable resource for individuals who want to learn how to reduce and cope with the stress in their lives.

Stress seems to be an affliction common to almost everyone living in the 21st century except perhaps a few inhabitants of some far-off islands untouched by modern society. But what is it? And more importantly, what is there we can do about it? Some research says we need it but this seems hard to believe. Other research, no less believable, says we don't need it but we can manage it. About the only thing about stress that seems certain is that there is a lot of it around and that the less of it that lands on a person the better. This book gathers new and important citations from both the journal and the book literature and provides access through author, subject and title indexes.

Grief can do terrible things to us. It can hold us still in time and skew our perspective. That is the case with William Maldonado, who grieves the loss of his father as a child to war; the loss of his mother as a young adult to an illness; the loss of an opportunity to pursue a doctoral degree, and the loss of his professional reputation to an accusation of committing insurance fraud. Subterranean sorrow leads Maldonado to make wrong-minded decisions that eventually lead him to prison and then to a half-way-house. One day, as he tries to understand his grief, he blames the world, and, in particular, a former business partner. Full of rage, he returns to the city where he experienced his deepest wounds. Upon his return, he discovers that his former business partner, now a Pentecostal minister, emerged unscathed from the insurance fraud scandal that sent him fleeing for a decade. That discovery thrusts Maldonado on a path of revenge and into the roiling world of church politics, where he joins a secession group that wants to fire his former partner. It takes the whims of fate and new friendships for Maldonado to experience clarity of purpose.
