This book is part of the 'Taste Berries for Teens' series (with contributions by teens) by a mother & daughter team. Out of the whole lot, I have hand-picked two titles which interest me. This is one of them & the other is about goal setting.

From the stress management standpoint, this book stands up to its title. It is packed with terrific (& time tested) intervention & prevention strategies to minimise stress & stay cool under pressure.

The chapters are interspersed with many inspiring teen stories, which teen readers can quickly relate to. This is where my only 'adverse' complaint about the book sets in. The stories are really too much a hassle for me to read/digest as I generally don't like story-telling. Personally, I feel that authors could easily have toned down the stories to a more concise & crisp level.

Nevertheless, I like the authors' closing epilogue for teen readers. To recap: "...In short, growing up is about taking responsibility for yourself. Taking responsibility means you think about your life, who you are, & how you would like to shape your life - to become the person you'd truly like to see. As you go about doing that, as you get even more busy & involved with your life, you're going to experience stress. But you can be cool to cope.

Throughout this book, you've been reading about a number of skills & techniques that you can use to reduce stress, strains & pressures of life, & learning how you can change undersired behaviours & adapt new ones. As with anything, these skills must be incorporated into your lifestyle; you have to practise daily.

You can do it. It's up to you!"

With that, I conclude this review with a rating of 4, although it probably deserves a rating of 5, if not for my 'adverse' complaint.

The content looks okay and the book may be great but I would never buy this book[s] for my teen and pre-teen boys. They would immediately dismiss it because of the lame title and perky cover. Who is the target market? Teens that are stressed out but perky and into bright colored and tasty titled literature or actual teens of the 21st century? It may have appealed to me as a teen 40 years ago on a sheltered mid-west farm where all my classmates were white church[christian]-goers, but my kids are growing up in an urban, multi-cultural, you-tubed, on-line gaming, they know more of reality than most adults because the internet opens the world up to them 24/7 AND they've come of age under the Bush administration where lying and torture and creating/spinning your own reality 'with God on our side' is the 'American Way'. I remind my 15 y/o frequently to not write off America based on the last 8 years - it has always had its flaws but was better before the election of 2000 and will be better again. I know I got off track from the book but it all relates to the fact that this book's title and cover aren't in tune with 21st century teens.

I haven't completely finished reading this book, but so far, I've loved it. It really helps. Sometimes when your so stressed, that it feels like a a car is sitting on top of you, it helps to hear stories of other kids who've had similair stressful experiences or days that were so full of stress, that the day was totally shot. There are also quotes and places to write down your own personal thoughts, feelings, and experiences with stress. One section like this looks like this:
What makes my like stressful is......
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
There were also checklists and symptom lists for you to check off to help you understand how your body tells you that you're under stress. I think this was one of my favorite features(all of the writing parts I mean)but I also really enjoyed the chapter that broke down the sides and phaes of stress. For those of you out there staring final exams or midterms in the face or really any teenager facing stress, I HIGHLY reccommend this book.
