Summary

A bright, subversive self-help book that asks a lot of interesting questions about life and work and provides even more interesting answers Remember the good old days of leisure time and guaranteed pension benefits-when working a nine-to-five job meant working from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, with an hour lunch break? For those of us old enough to have lived in those halcyon days, the days before work burnout, sixty-plus hour work weeks and chronic fears of having our jobs outsourced, it all seems like a distant dream. What if you could recapture the feeling of control, ease and security of those days, and again become your own man or woman? Well, you can, and this book shows you how. Covers overload and burn out, maintaining work/life balance, the philosophy of action, decision making, work-sharing and the social implications of toiling 'til you drop Makes a powerful case that learning when and how to say no is the life skill you need the most in life Packed with practical tips on how to get more from less, manage your time better and separate the work that works from the work that hurts Full of entertaining quotes, revolutionary ideas, fun illustrations and disturbing statistics that will have you questioning the status quo in new ways
