Surveys confirm that occupational pressures are the number-one source of stress for people. Eighty percent of workers feel high stress on the job, and 40 percent of job turnover is due to stress. Health and quality-of-life issues cause stressed-out workers to pursue new jobs. But does less career stress sacrifice good pay and a promising future?

This new book has the answer in two stress-free steps. First, readers explore 90 "best low-stress jobs" lists ranked by over a dozen common stress factors, plus by pay, growth, openings, personality type, interests, education level, gender, age, part-time work, and self-employment. Then, readers review descriptions of the jobs that appeal to them. Stress factors used in the main best jobs lists and bonus lists include: long work week, time pressure, level of competition, importance of being exact or accurate, consequence of error, frequency of conflict, public speaking, pace determined by speed of equipment, impact of decisions on others, and pressure to compromise values. The thorough job descriptions reveal facts on level of stress tolerance needed, wages, growth, openings, responsibilities, required education and courses, working conditions, related jobs, and more.
