RX: FROM THE DESK OF RICHARD A. SWENSON, M.D. Overload is not having time to finish the book you're reading on stress. Margin is having time to read it twice. Overload is fatigue. Margin is energy. Overload is red ink. Margin is black ink. Overload is hurry. Margin is calm. Overload is anxiety. Margin is security. Overload is the disease of the 90's. Margin is the cure.

As a medical practitioner, Dr. Richard Swenson sees a steady stream of exhausted, hurting people coming into his office. A majority of them are suffering from an uncontrolled societal epidemic: living without margin.

Margin is the space that once existed between ourselves and our limits. It's something held in reserve for contingencies or unanticipated situations.

As a society, we've forgotten what margin is. In the push for progress, margin has been devoured. So we feel distressed in ill-defined ways. We are besieged by anxiety, stress, and fatigue. Our relationships suffer. We have unexplained aches and pains. The flood of daily events seems beyond our control. We're overloaded.

In Margin, Dr. Swenson provides a prescription against the danger of overloaded lives. Focusing on margin in four key areas-emotional energy, physical energy, time, and finances-he offers an overall picture of health that employs contentment, simplicity, balance, and rest.

If you yearn for relief from the pain and pressure of overload, take a lifelong dose of Margin under the care of a specialist. The benefits of good health, financial stability, fulfilling relationships, and availability for God's purposes will follow you all your days.

"I am excited that Dick Swenson has decided to put in print the guiding principles of his life and Christian ministry. I am confident this book will be a great inspiration and practical help to all who read it."-Jay Kesler, president, Taylor University

"If contentment made house calls, its prescription would be 'increase your reserves.' In his timely book, Dr. Swenson offers the perfect prescription for our hurried lives. Margin is a home remedy for people who've run our of time, energy, confidence, and courage."-Tim Kimmel, author of Homegrown Heroes and Little House on the Freeway

"With the experience and insight of an astute clinician, Dr. Swenson offers an abundance of thoughtful, constructive steps to overcome the pressures of contemporary life that impair our efforts to attain balance and find inner peace. Margin provides valuable suggestions to every reader interested in physical and emotional health."-Armand Nicholi, Jr., M.D., associate clinical professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

This is one of those books that has a good idea (creating and maintaining margin in one’s life is healthy) and does an unwieldy job of presenting it. I think it could have been much better written and researched, but for those who are unfamiliar with the idea of planning margin into schedules, projects, programs, etc., and applying that principle to their own lives, it may be helpful. Anyone who has already extended the idea of systems theory to human dynamics will likely find this book a bit ham-fisted.

I love, love, love this book. I have read it twice. I have highlighted, underlined, reviewed often. If you are hurried and worried. Overdrawn and running on empty. You need to read this book and put into practice some great advice from a Christian doctor. Margin is all about allowing room to breath and relax in your normal everyday life. Society today is pushing us faster than ever and thank the good Lord for a voice like Swenson calling us back to sanity!

Swenson addresses sanity in several areas of our lives, finances, emotional health, health and fitness, etc. It is a comprehensive approach.

I have read this and several other books on the subject, one other good author to check out if you like this author would be Archibald Hart - Stress and Adrenaline is a good book for preachers especially to check out.

Full of in-your-face 2x4 truths that I definitely need to hear. Reading this book as a recommendation from a colleague, I'm also enjoying Swenson's use of vocabulary.

This book was required reading for a counseling class in graduate school. I wish I had read this book years earlier!! Swenson is an MD with a great way of laying out and connecting the medical and practical. Make time to read this book and heed the contents!

I had been wanting to buy this ever since I heard Dr. Swenson on Focus on the Family several years ago.
