Toxic stress is an indispensable tool on coping with the stresses of modern life. By identifying the different kinds of stress and in particular the dangers of 'toxic' stress, Dr Barry shows us how to discover where our stress is coming from and how we can effectively confront, manage and reduce it in our lives.
