Performance Edge CL

Robert K. Cooper, Author Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $19.95 (326p) ISBN 978-0-395-53338-3
Cooper ( Health & Fitness Excellence ) here offers practical, sensible advice on how to build mental and physical stamina to cope with increased pressure of career and family in today's corporate world. The focus is on personal qualities rather than on the leadership and management skills emphasized by other self-help guides to alleviating stress in the workplace. Topics range from techniques to develop ``on-target communication'' to exercises to relieve tension headaches, build brain cells, improve vision and hearing, along with tips on diet and sleep. To avoid burnout, Cooper recommends cutting down on extra, self-imposed work hours in favor of time for self-renewal and simple pleasures like ``baking an exotic loaf of bread.'' (Feb.)
