2.0 out of 5 stars Not helpful 5 Nov. 2012
By Sir Readalot - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are experiencing burnout, the last thing you need is to slog through this book. Its main flaw is that the authors fail to recognize and respect the limited control that a single worker has over his or her workplace. For example, in the chapter on respect, the authors suggest that one confront a coworker who has made an offensive joke to educate him or her regarding his or her insensitivity. If that doesn`t work, then tell the supervisor. If that doesn`t work' then file a formal complaint. If these suggestions actually worked, then I`d say you work in a pretty enlightened work place and don`t need this book. More likely than not, however, these suggestions don`t fit your work place, and you are $10 poorer for having bought this book. I would have preferred suggestions that are more within the realm of my control and my abilities than to depend on other people or the company to become more responsive to the problems I am experiencing. Lastly, the quiz that you are supposed to take to categorize the nature of your burnout did not translate well to the Kindle format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful 22 Sept. 2014

This is great book! I read a couple of others and this one really stood out. I found that the focus was more on the issues that we all are subjected to and the things you can do to prevent get burned-out. It really soldified the reality that we find ourselves in. Further, understanding that I'm not the only one that feels this way was a great relief.
