US Review of Books on Live Without Stress:

This book is a fresh and innovating read that details the various ways individuals can improve their lives by shedding the psychologically debilitating exoskeleton of stress. Marshall states that people are affected by their mental states, and fear paralyzes and traps them in a self-imposed shell, one they perceive to be their armor or strength, but in reality it is an anchor weighing them down, miring them in misery. Despite the heavy subject matter, the writing is bright and lively, uplifting and nurturing, offering insights and shedding light into those dark corners of our fear where we seldom venture and, if trapped, never escape.

Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews of Live Without Stress:

This book is a groundbreaking work that offers readers the right tools they need to beat stress and live richer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives. This stress management book is packed with strategies that will help readers go to the root causes of their stress and eliminate them effectively. In today’s eclectic, fast-paced, and highly competitive culture, it isn’t uncommon to feel weighed down by stress and quite often people who are stressed are hardly aware of the stressors. Marshall helps readers face the reality with tools that allow them to fully understand their stress and offers insights on dealing with it.

This is a book on a serious and very relevant subject that is hardly dealt with extensively and Dr. Marvin Marshall brings into it a vast professional experience, combining psychological insights with real life examples to create a message that will hit readers powerfully. The writing has a rare fluidity and displays a confidence that can only result from the author’s extensive knowledge and experience. He offers practical examples, and his analysis of the causes of stress is a road map to freedom that this book captivates. The voice is clear and highly authoritative, and the language is informal, somewhat chatty, which will appeal to the ordinary reader. Live Without Stress: How to Enjoy the Journey is an informative, inspiring, and excellent tool for anyone dealing with stress, no matter their occupation or state in life. It is very useful, especially in this time and age.”

Kirkus Reviews on Live Without Stress:

This book is a probing examination of how to assess and dispense with the stresses of life.

In this comparatively short, accessible volume, Marshall takes aim at an omnipresent element of modern existence: stress. Innumerable studies have linked stress to a wide array of health problems, from heart disease to ulcers to depression, and Marshall offers advice based on the idea that stress is largely a person’s own creation.

“Creating good habits takes time, patience and resolve, and you will inevitably encounter setbacks along the way,” Marshall writes. “But the key is to never give up—and in a few short months, you may find yourself on the road to the way of life you truly desire.”

As the book unfolds its road map, it emphasizes three areas. The first are unrealistic or unhelpful assumptions that readers make, which can escalate stress levels. The second are physical aspects that are often key to managing stress—poor posture, poor eating and sleeping habits, lack of exercise, and so on. The third is the motivation of oneself and others.

Again and again, the author reiterates that people need not grant circumstances the power to dictate responses—a very useful reminder. As in his other books, Marshall presents his precepts in clear, ringing prose that’s intent on encouraging rather than scolding.

Some of these precepts—such as that one should never give up or that one is the captain of one’s own ship—are on the platitudinous side, but they’re no less valuable for that. Throughout his discussions, Marshall focuses on personal responsibility—the choices that one makes to control one’s personal finances, one’s exercise routines, and the way that one frames how one interacts with the world: “There is a problem when we think our responses are automatically controlled by external stimuli.”

Live Without Stress contains a wide-ranging and convincingly sympathetic approach to understanding and dealing with all kinds of stress.
