Description - Stress and Health by William R. Lovallo
A brief primer. The brevity allows flexibility in how instructors may use the book and keeps it useful and appealing to undergraduate as well as graduate students. Given the audience of behavioral (not biological) students, Lovallo's guiding principle is to avoid making the biological side of the equation overly complex. Pedagogical features include chapter-opening introductions, figures and tables, chapter summaries and recommendations for further reading.
