Also called predepression, hurried woman syndrome affects 30 million women annually in the United States. HWS is most commonly found in mothers who live with the chronic stress of trying to fulfill many roles for many people and is characterized by a set of chronic physical, emotional, and psychological symptoms that can include fatigue, weight gain, moodiness, sleep problems, and low libido. Torn between the demands of managing children's school and activities, keeping up a home, work (paid or volunteer), social obligations, and more, hurried women feel as if they are on an endless emotional roller-coaster ride. Unfortunately, most HWS sufferers are unaware that they have a clinically identified and treatable problem. With proper guidance, most sufferers can quickly reverse the symptoms of HWS and regain their energy and love of life. Without it, they are in serious danger of developing full-blown clinical depression.

Based on Dr. Brent W. Bost's experiences treating his patients, The Hurried Woman Syndrome offers the first integrated program for overcoming the symptoms that make up the syndrome. An indispensable survival guide for busy women who feel stressed, tired, and dissatisfied, it features:
