All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Fall)
This book explains the effects of stress on body and mind. Though some of the information is immediately pertinent, teens may find that lab rat studies and obscure examples of stress inducers (e.g., voodoo) relate little to stresses in their daily lives. Sections on methods of stress relief have some practical applications. Occasional black-and-white photographs and diagrams break up the text. Reading list, websites. Bib., glos., ind.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2008 April)

Gr 7–10— Beginning with a brief history of stress from the time it was first identified, Hyde and Forsyth detail its effects on a young person's brain, heart, and immune system. While this sounds dry and relatively uninteresting, the writing is clear and informative. Interspersed with personal vignettes, the factual information is well organized and presented in small increments. One chapter focuses on various forms of meditation, and another offers a variety of self-help stress-reduction techniques. Black-and-white photographs appear every few pages, primarily breaking up the text. A solid resource for general information and for reports.—Wendy Smith-D'Arezzo, Loyola College, Baltimore, MD
