To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Useful self-help book giving advice on acquiring techniques in order to deal with stress. Easy to understand and engaging. Also has a lot of very useful exercises to work through. I am pleased with my purchase and would buy again.
This should be standard in every household, helped my very serious mental health issues tremendously, I have grown so much with this. All the emotional growing up I had sadly not completed yet through my adolescence and childhood, this is the missing piece guys!
This book, to me, is worth far more than the price I paid for it. Whether it's help for myself directly, or using the learning to adapt to an angry coworker, etc. the lessons therein are extremely helpful. Would that I could give this book to everyone I know and they actually use it - the world would start to be a better place!
I don't usually write reviews, but this book is especially bad-- pop psychology at its worst. It consists of page after page of pithy one liners and eye-catching marketing-style charts highlighting the obvious and trite. Anyone self-aware enough to spend money on a book that supposedly helps one manage stress better will learn nothing from this book full of shallow, greeting card-style dismissals. It doesn't delve deeply enough to actually help anyone or make the reader think. The authors seem to think that they can give a reader two pager after two pager and actually fool him into believing that he has learned something that will improve his ability to face his daily tasks. Don't waste your money on this glossy brochure masquerading as an actual resource.
I love this DK series. It's great for people with ADHD or anyone short on time. Super easy to read and absorb. I use it for homeschooling. We also have the Adolescence(preview before using in class), Study Skills, Success and Love editions as well.
