St. Martin’s Essentials. Apr. 2024. 368p. ISBN 9781250319753. $30. SELF-HELP
Law, a stress and wellness expert and host of the podcast Unstressable, and Gawdat, an engineer, author (Solve for Happy), and former chief business officer of Google X, have written a guide to help readers understand how to navigate the health epidemic that is modern-day stress. The authors provide steps that readers can take to predict and prevent mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual stress. This book is structured around a model deemed “the three Ls”—limit, learn, and listen—and includes a “stress language course” to help readers understand different types of stress and how to become “unstressable.” Using a combination of biology, chemistry, neuroscience, and personal experiences, Law and Gawdat provide a framework to help readers address stress in their day-to-day lives.
VERDICT Will appeal to those looking to improve their relationship with stress and to fans of Law’s podcast as well as readers of Gawdat’s books and followers of his popular podcast, Slow Mo.
