Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successfulWhy Zebras Don't Get Ulcers features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress. As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice,Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.… (lisätietoja)

Sapolsky gives you a rundown of the basics of the biology of the stress response, then explains the multifarious impacts of chronic stress on humans (and mice, rats, baboons, macaques, rhesus monkeys, etc.) Most of the facts presented in this book are pretty painful. Little is said without a reference to a specific study, its methods and findings. Sapolsky goes to good effort to note which findings are fairly conclusive, where more research is needed, where studies disagree or where he suspects they are not comprehensive. The sum of my understanding of the endocrine system (today) is basically what I was able to glean from this book. I haven't done a lot of other reading to validate the claims made, but for the most part they don't seem too bold and are mostly cautious suppositions based on available research.

For a book that could be really dry, it's actually _fun_ to read. Sapolsky balances sober explanation with wit and irony throughout. The footnotes are great.

The last four chapters (prior to the final chapter on managing stress) were particularly relevant to me, but I think also the hardest hitting. (14 is stress and depression, 15 is temperament/personality and anxiety, 16 is dopamine, the nature of pleasure and addiction, 17 is socioeconomic status and health outcomes)

The last chapter did not have any magic wands like I was hoping. I will have to resign myself to better understanding the physiology of stress and how I experience it, avoid pushing what buttons I can and learn/develop coping techniques. This is a great book and it has already done a lot for me. ( )

Good descriptions of what happens in your body in case of a stress related disease. The list of the "reasons why" is of course different for each reader. ( )

Not a how to manual to deal with stress, although it does provide some simple, common sense advice to help us cope. More than that, however, this book presents a comprehensive overview of stress as a biological as well as a psycho-social imperative, an indispensable tool in our evolutionary journey. Full of well researched information, surprising findings and rich in informative and colorful examples that help us begin to grasp the complexity of stress responses.

There's a ton here about how stress can make you sick, I was hoping for more about how to combat that tendency. Love the precision vagueness, 'this affects some people, some of the time, in certain circumstances.' ( )

I'll admit it got slightly repetitive. He loves those glucocorticoids. But I had a light bulb moment several times and his research on socialist medicine was fascinating and unexpected. ( )
