Why are people so tense today? Some say it is because life is more dangerous. Is it? 

Tension is produced by the sensing of danger. We have road accidents, plane crashes, train mishaps, crime is more prevalent than it ought to be, and accidents can happen in a variety of ways. On the other hand, medicine gives us today greater protection against the physical hazards of life. Childbirth is safer. Our standard of living, in food and physical comfort, is higher than it has ever been before. In 1900 the average child could expect to live only forty-seven years, while the average child of today can look forward to a life span of seventy years. Life today is physically less dangerous than it used to be. Why, then, are people so tense today?  The answer is: because life is full of psychological dangers.

For instance, our day may begin with the ringing of the alarm, followed by one tension after another as our day progresses through a succession of shocks both mild and severe, irritations, fears and frustration, and even if we feel that we successfully shrug many of them away they all wreak their havoc within us. This book tells you what tension is, where it comes from and how you can free yourself from it. You become healthier and happier, and you accomplish much more with your life, when you are able to master your tensions. This helpful book deals fully with tensions in childhood, adolescence and adult years, and in association with such factors as work, leisure, inferiority and superiority, security and insecurity, living with one's neighbours, friends, love, marriage, sex relations, and the many other things that make up the complicated pattern of modern life. 

Here's how to master your tensions and start living again - this book shows you the way.
