Dr. Fernandez is filling in the gaps that were left by Hans H. Selye during his life-time work in the field of stress. Fernandez is formulating a straight forward definition of physiological stress; something that Selye only reported as a delay in the appearance of a syndrome he discovered by chance.
In this book, the author makes a distinction between mechanical, physiological, and psychological stress and at the same time describes stress in general, as a condition depending on the interaction between two opposite components.
What makes the difference among the three forms of stress is the nature of the two components involved in the condition of stress. In mechanical stress, the two components in conflict are; intrinsic forcesĀ  maintaining the form of inert matter in the solid state vs external forces disorganizing inert matter. In psychological stress, humans responding to the external environment vs inhibition of those responses. In physiolgical stress; living organizations reacting to maintain the constancy of the internal environment vs inhibition of those reactions.
After examining stress, as described in this book, readers will have a broader perspective to understand what stress is, and even elaborate some additional conclusions on their own about different aspects of human knowledge where stress is an essential part such as psychology, sociology, antropology, evolution, and religion, to name a few.
