Bloomsbury Reference £6.99; Assorted editors

This is an easy-to-read guide offering practical advice on combating stress. Don't be put off by the bright pink cover; this pocket-sized gem is crammed with top tips, advice on avoiding common mistakes and step-by-step guidance in dealing with stress.

Cary L Cooper and Philip Dewe; Blackwell Publishing £12.99

As the title suggests, this volume offers background information on stress for those genuinely interested in finding out more about the subject. It's interesting and informative, but the historical focus reduces its value to those seeking practical advice in dealing with stress. *
