zebrasWhy Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers – or heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases — when us mortals do? In this enlightening and EASY to read book.  Biologist Robert Sapolsky dissects the anatomy/physiology and science of stress.  Sapolsky postulates that  people develop such diseases partly because our bodies aren’t designed for the constant stresses of  our modern-day life — like sitting in daily traffic or growing up in poverty.  Rather, our bodies are more built for the kind of short-term stress faced by a zebra — like outrunning a lion.

This is a must read book for anyone who feels stressed, and/or would like to be the cause over it rather then the effect of it.  I have read it cover to cover twice and will most likely re-read it again, as I gleaned even more useful data the last time.
