‘Having worked for many years in broadcast television, and, in particular live broadcasting, I am only too aware of a work environment where there is tremendous “pressure” and the real danger that “pressure” – which some may say is “good” stress – can easily turn to uncomfortable, bad, unproductive stress. When dealing with members of my team who have had problems with stress, I wish I had been able to refer them to Gladeana’s book. Based on proven principles, full of practical exercises and accessible methods for dealing with stress, this book is a sensible, holistic, full-function tool guide to taking control of your working life, rather than letting it take control of you – I would recommend it to everyone.’
