“A must-read for those who are stressed or anxious, or those who are near the stressed and anxious, which is to say, all of us. Drawing from everything from Descartes to polyvagal theory to Zelda, Charles Schaeffer’s approach is as entertaining as it is informative. It is not an overstatement to say that this work will change lives."
