Sapolsky's Why Zebra’s Don’t Get Ulcers: a charming tour of stress science
Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers, by Robert M Sapolsky, 405
405 (3rd ed edition)
The full quote/excerpt
The realm of stress management is mostly about techniques to help deal with challenges that are less than disastrous. It is pretty effective in that sphere. But it just won’t work to generate a cult of subjectivity in which these techniques are blithely offered as a solution to the hell of a homeless street person, a refugee, someone prejudged to be one of society’s Untouchables, or a terminal cancer patient.
