How to Survive Being Alive
by Donald L. Dudley, M.D
First published in 1977, How to Survive dramatically changed the dialog between doctor and patient. Many more doctors began to consider the physical and mental states of their patients, rather than simply treating symptoms. This classic guide to identifying and learning to cope with stress remains surprisingly relevant in our even more hectic 21st century world.
