It is illustrated in a comic-book fashion, with engaging artwork, humour and a clever use of metaphors that enhance the readability of the text. Clear explanations accompany the illustrations and outline complex theories in an easy-to-understand manner.

It would be a useful resource for students or nurses who are unfamiliar with the subject. It may also be appropriate to use as a self-help resource for patients who would like to understand the effects of stress and trauma.
