Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers
418 pages (plus almost 100 pages of notes at the end)
Divided into various chapters explaining the connections between stress and various aspects of mental and physical health, including disease, sleep, depression, aging, pain, and memory.
I wasn’t able to keep up with all the scientific terms and do admit to skimming a little here and there and also forgetting many of the details after reading it. This didn’t stress me out though, because his writing style is great, the general subject is interesting and the parallels between baboons and humans are often amazing…
Not a how-to-avoid-stress manual!
