The Truth About Stress


Daily Mail serialisation, shortlisted for the MIND Book of the Year Award 2007. A no-holds-barred exposé of the $multi-billion ‘stress’ industry, its beliefs, practices and treatments, and its so-called ‘scientific’ research and provenance. The book marshals wide-ranging evidence to show that the morbid ‘stress management’ ideology has harmed and disabled millions of people by medicalising their problems and feelings, and analyses more traditional methods of achieving emotional robustness, such as ‘character training’, adventure activities and the arts. For reviews see separate entry.
