Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers
Robert Sapolsky

Why don''t zebras get ulcers - or heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases - when people do? In a fascinating look at the science of stress, biologist Robert Sapolsky presents an intriguing case, that people develop such diseases partly because our bodies aren''t designed for the constant stresses of modern-day life like sitting in daily traffic jams or growing up in poverty. Rather, they seem more built for the kind of short-term stress faced by a zebra - like outrunning a lion. With wit, graceful writing, and a sprinkling of Far Side cartoons, this book makes understanding the science of stress and adventure in discovery.
