Fighting Overwork and Time Poverty in AmericaEdited by John de Graaf with contributing author Anna Blythe Lappé Buy Now
The typical American worker puts in nine weeks more on the job than his or her European counterpart. The costs of this overwork are enormous, both personally and societally. This bracing collection of essays is both a wide-ranging analysis of the phenomenon and a blueprint for change. This book shows what ordinary citizens can do to restore balance to themselves and their communities. Take Back Your Time is the official handbook for "Take Back Your Time Day", a national event rallying support for reclaiming a proper work-life balance.
If you only have time to read one book this year, then this is absolutely the book to read!"
