Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive

by Joan Borysenko

Hay House | December 13, 2010 | Hardcover

Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
This Is an Invitation to Take Your Power Back! What happened to the spark you had as a child that powered curiosity, engagement with life, and creativity? Has it burned out? Are you feeling emotionally and physically exhausted and cynical, wondering if you've got what it takes to make it in this rapidly changing world? Burnout looks a lot like depression, but it's not a biological bogeyman that medication or simple stress management can cure. It's a disorder of hope and will that sucks the life out of competent, idealistic, hardworking people like you; and it will be an ongoing challenge for you to take your power back! In this breakthrough work, Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. - a Harvard-trained medical scientist, psychologist, and renowned pioneer in stress and health - straddles psychology, biology, and soul in a completely fresh approach to burnout. Joan's deeply human (and often amusing) personal accounts of burnout and recovery; the science of helplessness, hopelessness, and empowerment; and the rich wisdom of people who have gone from 'fried' to 'revived' - including many of Joan's vibrant community of 5,000 Facebook Friends - make this powerful and practical book a must-read for our times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully Insightful and Honest. "Fried" is very much a book that addresses some challenges of the present times. It was an amazing read with many impactful moments. Joan Borysenko is one of my favorite authors and I commend her for her honesty and willingness to share. Love the book and would recommend it to all! Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Book is a Life-Changer and Life-Saver As my breast cancer surgeon once asked me (in response to my ceaseless 18 hour days working on my breast cancer advocacy efforts), "Do you really want to die with an empty in-box?" I was in chemotherapy, building a national movement; fighting for my life and killing myself at the same time. Wow! This issue is a prime example of why Joan Borysenko's new groundbreaking book "Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive" is so relevant and necessary. My only wish is that I had been able to have this precious book in my possession several years ago. I learned many of the lessons that Joan so eloquently and clearly puts forth in this trailblazing book the hard way and at great expense. I don't want others to do the same or to look back upon their lives and ponder, "If only I knew then what I know now." Do yourself, your friends, family members and colleagues a great favor -- pick up and read a copy of "Fried" and send out copies to those you know and love -- it will be a blessing and gift that keeps on giving that will help you and others to survive, revive and thrive in this fast-paced world of ours. This book is a life-changer and life-saver; a must-read and how-to-live guidebook that is destined to be a classic in the field of stress management and mind-body medicine.
