Personal Growth • 17.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

A veteran stress expert updates his exhaustive lesson on how all types of stress affect us--immediate stress reactions, stress-recovery responses, and long-term effects from repeated stress exposure. He's a chatty writer, which makes the voluminous information engaging and easy to absorb. He encourages open-mindedness by offering all sides of a controversial issue before delivering his invariably well-documented findings on how stress affects processes like disease resistance, sexual functioning, appetite and energy consumption, emotional health, and addiction. Delightful voice pro Peter Berkrot keeps the action going with his skillful expression of the author's wry humor and nuanced intelligence. This and his sensitive way of interpreting Sapolsky's more surprising or important statements gives this lengthy audio the dramatic edge needed to make it endlessly fascinating.
