Stress for Success

Peter G. Hanson, Author Doubleday Books $17.95 (288p) ISBN 978-0-385-24577-7
``In this book,'' writes Hanson, ``I will show you how to actively choose to have the stress of your work life bring you conquest instead of carnage.'' But if Hanson is an expert on stress--this is his second book on the subject, following The Joy of Stress --why do his ideas seem so tired? There is little here that hasn't turned up countless times in magazines, newspapers or on television. Do people really still need to be told what a workaholic is and why it's bad to be one? Or, to give one example from his chapter on stress and travel, that it's a bad idea to leave packing for a business trip to the last minute? Regardless, corporate America apparently listens closely to what Hanson has to say--he gives numerous lectures and workshops on stress around the country. Perhaps his well-worn observations and Rotary Club humor enjoy an impact in person that they lack in print. Illustrated. Author tour. (Apr.)
