Reviews

'Brian Claridge and Cary Cooper do for stress and coping, what Studs Terkel did for working women and men several decades ago. Through interviews with 23 successful women and men from a range of occupations, from a bomb disposal officer, leaders of major organizations, a surgeon, and a mountain climber among others, they identify demands and challenges these individuals faced and how they managed them. This engaging collection offers useful insights of benefit to all readers.'

-Professor Ronald J. Burke, Schulich School of Business, York University, Canada
