Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print

Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress.
As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick.
Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.

Passionnant. Un peu difficile à lire pour nous français, mais ça prendra le temps que ça prendra, mais j'irai au bout. Le professeur Sapolsky nous explique les systèmes de notre corps, simplement, de façon drôle et imagée, un vrai plaisir de s'instruire.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I have recommended this book to people on more than one occasion 27 juin 2016
Par Paige - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I purchased this book for a mental health and stress education course. It was so interesting and the only "textbook" I looked forward to reading. I have recommended this book to people on more than one occasion! Each chapter has a way of describing the complexity of things as well as putting them in very simple terms to better understand. It often refers back to zebras and the safari animal prey/predator relationship hence the title. If you're looking for an interesting and educational read that isn't boring than this is for you. It will have you drawn in wanting to learn more as you go through the different ways that stress affects you mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An enjoyable treasure 28 novembre 2014
Par Odysseus at home - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is about stress. I bought it and read it because I am a stressful guy. I wanted to know if stress was in fact that powerful representative in the congress of our bodies and therefore a moderator of our lives. After reading "Why zebras..." I know it is and I know also that it has to do with sicknesses and different states of mind. It has to do with everything involved with our perceptions, either internal or external. To let you know about all that stuff and its intermingled and complex wire clutter, Professor Sapolsky gives a comprehensive account distributed on eighteen chapters and a big corpus of notes. Everyone of them relates the stress with pain, memory, aging and death, cancer, and so on. In some cases there is a clear relationship while in some others the link is not so clear: the author is always there to let you know the difference. A caveat: this is not a self help book and I didn't buy it by mistake. I knew it was a serious work at the very extreme of a life dedicated to study this phenomenon with rats, baboons, several monkeys, and ourselves of course.

To finish, the last two chapters were very impressive to me. To jump from the individual to the society in chapter seventeen and then go back in chapter eighteen to our daily experience was an extraordinary closure to a superb work. As a moral I would say that not everything is good news here but this is how it works... What can we do? The rest is noise (not silence).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy read and great to understand links between stress, social factors and health 29 août 2016

Very interesting book depicting the link between stress and physiological responses / diseases. The author use humor and personal experiences throughout the book. This is an easy read and interesting concepts are discussed throughout the book. Highly recommended for any future healthcare provider to help understand links between social factors and how stress transmitted through previous generations can affect the health of the future generation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Such a way with words 28 avril 2017

Dr. Robert Sapolsky is an amazing individual. After watching his documentary I was intrigued to buy his book. As you read it you can hear his voice with his enthusiasm dripping from each page. The man is a nerdy comic who has some great humor throughout the book. Strongly recommend for anyone who doesn't understand stress response and cortisol release. Overall a wonderfully intriguing book!

Funny, detailed, so smart and insightful. I'm referring to the footnotes. Footnotes! I learned a ton from this book and I refer back to it. Make sure you get to Ch. 18 - the uplifting chapter of what to do about stress - in you life and in the lives of your yet to be born grandchildren...
