Thrive on Stress

Jan Sutton, How To Books pounds 9.99

The Stress Pocketbook

Management Pocketbooks pounds 6.99

A faster and more user-friendly guide to stress management. The simple, quick-fire descriptions of common workplace situations are useful, and the tone is light. Well worth keeping handy. ***

Positive Under Pressure

Thorsons pounds 6.99

A relentlessly cheerful primer, this book is good on detail if at times a little too enthusiastic in tone. The checklists on lifestyle and behaviour are thorough and well thought out. The book is also good on the times when we should 'just say no'. **
