RU Press Book of the Month-Worried Sick on Kindle!

This month’s RU Press Book of the Month is Worried Sick: How Stress Hurts Us and How to Bounce Back Kindle edition, by professor and chair of sociology at Rutgers University, Deborah Carr. 

Cutting through a sea of scientific research and theories, Worried Sick answers many questions about how stress gets under our skin, makes us sick, and how and why people cope with stress differently. Included are several standard stress and coping checklists, allowing readers to gauge their own stress levels and strategies on how to bounce back.

For the first time ever, Rutgers alumni Kindle users receive $1 off of the already discounted price of Worried Sick when they visit Amazon and use promo code RUTGERS3

Worried Sick is available at Amazon, iBooks, Google PlayStore, and BN Nook.
