9781408860373: The Stress Test: How Pressure Can Make You Stronger and Sharper

Why is it that some people react to seemingly trivial emotional upset - like failing an unimportant exam - with distress, while others power through life-changing tragedies showing barely any emotional upset whatsoever? How do some people shine brilliantly at public speaking when others stumble with their words and seem on the verge of an anxiety attack? Why do some people sink into all-consuming depression when life has dealt them a poor hand, while in others it merely increases their resilience? The difference between too much pressure and too little can result in either debilitating stress or enduring demotivation in extreme situations. However, the right level of challenge and stress can help people to flourish and achieve more than they ever thought possible. In The Stress Test, clinical psychologist and cognitive neuroscientist Professor Ian Robertson, armed with over four decades of research, reveals how we can shape our brain's response to pressure and answers the question: can stress ever be a good thing? The Stress Test is a revelatory study of how and why we react to pressure in the way we do, with real practical benefit to how we live.

Review:

You can change, and here's the proof. This compelling examination of a scientific revolution helps us understand how we can learn to harness stress * Oliver James * The Stress Test is a toolbox for people like us, with all the rewards of a good novel -- DBC Pierre A cutting edge neuroscientist ... who also has the ability to step back and explore the big picture -- Norman Doidge, author of 'The Brain that Changes Itself' An engaging tour of psychology, brain science and personal narrative -- Elaine Fox, author of 'Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain' Robertson argues convincingly that the sensation of control or helplessness is crucial: it shapes the brain * Daily Mail * Writing from the heart of the quest to discover what makes us tick, Ian Robertson shows that stress can be good and throws up a toolbox of widgets for the mind. This is big science that you can try out on yourself -- DBC Pierre * Metro * Mind blowing * Psychologist *
