The Stress Myth--by Serge Doublet. Stress-The 'Epidemic' of the 20th Century Numerous claims have been made about the evils of stress. As a result, advice on how to cope with the epidemic of the 20th century has abounded. Interest in the concept of stress has generated studies in many varied areas of research which have included Psychology, Sociology, Immunology, Neurology, Cardiology, and Human resources. In bringing together the findings from most of these disciplines, this book is the first to tell the whole, complete story about stress. This book is also unique because, unlike most books on stress, it challenges the usefulness and validity of the concept of stress. The author has systematically investigated most of the claims that have been made about stress and has carefully argued and demonstrated that they cannot be substantiated. In addition, he offers a simpler and more adequate explanation of what takes place when people feel they are stressed. Such an approach makes it possible to address the problem rather than the symptoms. Serge Doublet has effectively, through his critical, and at times, most detailed examination of available evidence, demolished the concept of stress as a useful scientific construct.
