Staying Sane

Staying Sane

Summary

How often do we hear ourselves say, 'I can't cope', 'I'm going mad', 'I'm losing my mind'? Despite the wall-to-wall advice on offer to us today, how often do we struggle to maintain a healthy mental attitude in the face of seemingly endless pressure?

Now, in this groundbreaking work, the eminent psychiatrist and broadcaster, Dr Raj Persaud, confronts crucial issues - such as emotional intelligence and the meaning of happiness - and offers proven strategies for achieving and maintaining a healthy, positive mental attitude, regardless of the stresses and strains of daily life. Packed with case histories, questionnaires and fascinating scientific research, this is an invaluable, twenty-first century survival handbook - the ultimate self-help guide to staying sane.
