Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers

by- Robert Sapolsky


Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers (1994) beautifully illustrates the genetics of stress and its effects on our lives, demonstrating how stress can be an important way to cope with acute challenges but still raising major health threats in the long term. The author also provides a wealth of useful advice about how to manage tension.
