Peter Hanson was born in Vancouver, B.C. His aptitudes as a public speaker surfaced early; he was performing regular comedy monologues on live television by the age of 14. But his career had serious objectives, and he graduated from the University of Toronto Medical School at the age of 24. He worked for three years as an Emergency Room physician, before opening his family practice. He delivered over a thousand babies, made over 5,000 house calls, and saw the effects of stress on all his patients, from pediatrics to geriatrics. While most of his patients blamed stress for their physical and mental illnesses, he was inspired by the few who had the opposite outcomes. These people had high levels of stress, but, with good management choices, were able to thrive and live long, healthy lives. It was from these patients that he realized that good health did not depend on an individual's quantity of stress, but rather on the quality of choices being made. This formed the basis for his international bestseller, "The Joy of Stress". He put his theories to the test by mortgaging his house to self-publish, and his book soon became Canada's number one bestseller for over a year. The Joy of Stress has now been translated into twenty languages, and Dr. Hanson has lectured to hundreds of corporations on three continents.
