12 Tips for Managing Stress and Anxiety: This slender volume from the Healthy Living series spotlights ideas for dealing with stress and anxiety. The 12 tips include exercise, visualization, time management, limiting caffeine, listening to music, talking with friends, keeping a journal, and getting sufficient sleep. Spalding presents each topic in a two-page spread featuring a few simply written paragraphs, two captioned photos, and two text boxes presenting related information. While the book brings up many pertinent factors related to the subject, the brevity of each discussion limits its depth. Space limitations lead to broad, general pronouncements without the background information and specific advice that most individuals need in order to implement changes in their lives. Still, for readers looking for ways to cope with stress and anxiety, the book offers brief introductions to suggestions that are worth pursuing. Booklist [Apr 2017]
A series of books that transform the concept of ordinary print materials into a living literary form. The hard copy provides the tactile element to engage the student in traditional information retrieval and then provides both the teacher and student with a cyber pathway to experience the potential for expanding a basic interest into a full-blown exploration and learning experience. There are lesson plans for the teacher, web links to additional resources for the student and teacher, which is much like the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland, leading to an ultimate adventure. Accessing the website not only makes it possible to have the ebook at hand, but provides links to supplementary materials for the books you own and general information on a number of related topics as ТNewsУ is released and published on the site. With a stream of additional information, the book that is purchased does not fade with time but stays viable through the updated web site information. NSTA [Jan 2017]
