요약
"The author of The Willpower Instinct delivers a controversial and groundbreaking new book that overturns long-held beliefs about stress. More than forty-four percent of Americans admit to losing sleep over stress. And while most of us do everything we can to reduce it, Stanford psychologist and bestselling author Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D., delivers a startling message: Stress isn't bad. In The Upside of Stress, McGonigal highlights new research indicating that stress can, in fact, make us stronger, smarter, and happier--if we learn how to embrace it. The Upside of Stress is the first book to bring together cutting-edge discoveries on the correlation between resilience--the human capacity for stress-related growth--and mind-set, the power of beliefs to shape reality. As she did in The Willpower Instinct, McGonigal combines science, stories, and exercises into an engaging and practical book that is both entertaining and life-changing, showing you: how to cultivate a mind-set to embrace stress how stress can provide focus and energy how stress can help people connect and strengthen close relationships why your brain is built to learn from stress, and how to increase its ability to learn from challenging experiences McGonigal's TED talk on the subject has already received more than 7 million views. Her message resonates with people who know they can't eliminate the stress in their lives and want to learn to take advantage of it. The Upside of Stress is not a guide to getting rid of stress, but a guide to getting better at stress, by understanding it, embracing it, and using it"--

Author Introduction

켈리 맥고니걸(지은이)

스탠퍼드대학교(Stanford University) 심리학자. 스탠퍼드대학교에서 심리학 박사학위를 받았다(건강심리학 전공). 인간의 삶에 실제로 유용한 과학을 표방하는 실용과학 분야의 차세대 심리학자로 불린다. 미국 심리학 전문지 《사이콜로지투데이(Psychology Today)》 고정 칼럼니스트로 활동하면서 강연, 워크숍, 세미나 및 저술 활동을 통해 스트레스를 조절하고 삶을 긍정적으로 변화시키는 방법을 전파하고 있다. 또한 의과대학 건강 증진 프로그램에서 활동하는 보건 전문가로서 신경과학과 의학의 최신 연구 결과를 일상생활에 구현하고자 애쓰고 있다. 이 책 『스트레스의 힘』의 근간이 된 강의 ‘새로운 스트레스 과학(New Science of Stress)’은 스탠퍼드대학교 역사상 가장 인기 있는 수업으로 꼽힌다. 이에 힘입어 진행한 TED 강연 ‘스트레스와 친구가 되는 법(How to make stress your friend)’은 전세계 1,000만 명 이상이 시청했다. 이 책에서 저자는 그동안 공공의 적으로만 여겨진 스트레스를 완전히 새롭게 정의한다. 과학적으로 입증된 수많은 연구 결과를 바탕으로 스트레스가 우리 몸에 나쁜 영향만 미치는 게 아니며, 심지어 행복한 삶을 살게 해주는 가장 큰 에너지라고 역설하고 있다. 지은 책으로는 인간의 의지력을 과학적으로 분석해 큰 반향을 불러일으킨 『왜 나는 결심만 할까?(The Willpower Instinct)』가 있다.
