A scientific exploration of stress.

Adolescents are no strangers to stress. Now they can learn the science behind that sweaty, heart-racing, under-pressure feeling. This book covers the fight-or-flight reaction to danger, how people cope with chronic stress, how trauma can affect the brain, the ways athletes put pressure to work and the surprising treatments scientists have found to manage stress in everyday life. It's a perfect primer for young people on what normal stress is and isn't—and how to deal with it either way.

Dealing with stress can be tough. Learning the facts about it can make it manageable.
