Every home needs this book

This book is scientifically insightful and yet has easy, simple steps that are accessible and achievable for everyone to apply. I have never recommended a book to patients before but I am recommending this. I feel this is one book that needs to be re-read or listened to yearly to re-fire the concepts in our lives along with refining them. Dr Chatterjee is delightful to listen to as well as passionate about his written material and this comes through in his reading. Highly recommend.

If only I could find a GP like this!

Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is clearly a man that cares for his patients and those sick and in need. There are many doctors like this but what sets him apart and puts him in an elite category is his openness to being incorrect in the past and acknowledging that he still has more to learn. My area of academic interest is Heuristics and Bias in decision making. Doctors, senior politicians and pilots regularly feature as being amongst the worst offenders, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee not only bucks that but turns it on its head. I honestly believe he is one of the good guys along with Dr. Jason Fung and Dr. Michael Mosley. I strongly recommend both of his books. and I would like to thank for writing them. Wishing my fellow readers/listeners the same positive experience that I had listening to this book.

I felt like he knew me/easy to understand

I will have to buy this book. There were so many times when I felt he knew me. The chapter on touch was extraordinary. I come from a family that does not hug or touch. I'm also the black sheep. I kept thinking Doctor Chatterjee knew my life story and was talking directly to me. I have to pay for a massage therapist to get what I need. And now I know touch is a necessity not an option for a physically and mentally well person. There is so much more in the book. This is the one to read/listen to. And it is now one of my top five favorite books. He is brilliant.

Thank you!

I grew up in Ethiopia, and since I have moved here 15 years ago, I was pretty much sucked in to the stressful lifestyle and had no idea how to get out of it. It's extremely helpful to see it from physiological perspective. I really appreciate you for taking the time to put it this way. just breath...

More likely it's a summary than authentic book

Whole book is like a summary of already well known stress reduction actions; author provided neither his own authentic insights, nor controversial thoughts. Therefore, it was boring to listen, i have learned nothing new. However, i hope there still be lots of people who will find this book useful.

So glad I found this book

I found this book after listening to one of Jay Shetty podcasts. Honestly I’m really glad I’ve found it. I also realized I’ve already been doing much of those breathing techniques but I learned so much more. Thank you Dr Chatterjee. This is one to keep and listen over and over again.

Really thought provoking and easy to follow

I was worried that the audio version may be difficult to follow as I knew the book would be full of information. But the book really lends itself to the audio format and the narration by the author is absolutely pitch perfect. I would never describe myself as stressed but this book is really making me think about how life could be easier, more fun and generally more rewarding. It's real food for thought and I keep thinking about what I have heard. 2019 plans are definitely going to incorporate some/a lot of the messages and tips in the book. Highly recommend.

Simple steps to a happier and less stressful life.

Absolutely fantastic book packed with hints and tips on how to reduce stress in different areas of your life - a holistic view. Nothing new if you’re into a healthy mindful life, but presented in very simple and achievable manner. It would be helpful to get a download PDF with some of the tips to be able to go back / refer to them frequently. I have also bought a paper back to be able to do that... thanks.

Good book interesting material for all levels

If this is your introduction to self-help, personal growth, this is a great book to start with. And even if you're well read on the subject Chatterjee gives very good and clear analogies, for me there was some interesting new material too. Well worth the listen, would recommend :-)

Helped change my mind set

Dr Chatterjee is easy to listen to without sounding patronising. He states the obvious but you need to hear it. It’s not rocket science, but biology... I will listen again and try implement more of his tips on living a healthier lifestyle.
