gilt titles spine; signed on front endpaper with the inscription: "January, 1979 with very best wishes Andrew Melhuish"; illustrated by b/w. charts & diagrams; "today's successful manager has a responsibility for the health of his staff and for his own health - as well as the health of his family. Unfortunately. he usually receives little training in the supervision of the health of his staff; his employers may prejudice his own health by unreasonable demands on his skills and time; and he lives in a modem society in which stress seems an accepted part of everyday life. Such considerations might suggest that the executive is particularly prone to illness. Exactly the reverse holds true. The executive enjoys better health than his fellow workers in other social classes and so does his wife. Executive Health investigates the reasons behind this seeming paradox. The general pattern of disease in modem society is discussed and those illnesses which particularly affect the executive are identified. These illnesses are then discussed in simple terms and modem advances in diagnoses and treatment are summarised. A chapter deals fully with the relationship between stress and health - a controversial subject - while the last four chapters deal with the causes of ill health in executives and suggest appropriate remedies. These remedies are by no means all negative: while it is obviously important to stop smoking cigarettes. great emphasis is laid on the value of healthy habits such as exercise and diet. Executive Health encourages the executive to help himself to better health.."; the price-intact D/J. inner flap has left a vertical line on the f.e.p.; iincluding reading list & index - 190 pages.
