Jacqui Letran's self-help guide for young adults is an engrossing and highly accessible guide for anyone who'd like to understand why they react to stress and stressors the way they do. I was impressed by the way the author introduces the complex and complicated processes that go on in the human mind and especially appreciated how she's adapted her findings and techniques to work with young women. Her case studies were fascinating and clearly demonstrated how depression and other mental health issues can sometimes be resolved without the use of medicines and traditional therapeutic methods. This is a well-written and informative work that is neither condescending nor patronizing of its target audience, and it is highly recommended. Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite
