Stanford's Sapolsky and National Geo produce a documentary on stress

Avi sez, "Prof. Robert Sapolsky (along with National Geographic) has produced a superb introduction to how stress works and how best to cope with it. A summation of his lifelong study of stress, this video effectively delivers Sapolsky's personal perspective on Stress that may help you live a better, longer life."

Sapolsky's lectures on stress (see link below) are some of the most interesting scientific explanations for everyday phenomena I've ever read. Stress: Portrait of a Killer (Thanks, Avi!)

  1. Robert Sapolsky’s “A Primate’s Memoir” is my favorite of his books – he really opened up my head to help me understand primates, including humans. His writing style is candid, open-minded, and inclusive. I think he’s a great example for future academics.
