Why is it that some people react to seemingly trivial

level of challenge and stress can help people flourish
and achieve more than they ever thought possible.
In THE STRESS TEST, clinical psychologist and cognitive
neuroscientist Ian Robertson, armed with over four
decades of research, reveals how we can shape our brain's
response to pressure and how stress actually can be a
good thing. THE STRESS TEST is a revelatory study of how
and why we react to pressure as we do, and how we can
change our response to stress to our benefit.
