Editorial Reviews

"...solid advice for anyone who wants to transform their current workplace, or is looking for new employment." - Deborah Bowers, Winnipeg Free Press"Posen makes a sound, compelling case for active stress reduction at work" - Publishers Weekly"As I was reading Is Work Killing You?, there was one question that kept popping into mind: why isn't this book taught in school? You'll ask yourself that, too, because Posen makes many good points for employees and business owners alike...Posen offers pages and pages of ideas meant to make the business world better, do-able from dual sides of the paycheck." - Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Augusta Chronicle"You'll ask yourself that, too, as you devour this common-sense, how-to, rant-slash-advice book because Posen makes many good points for employees and business owners alike. In making those arguments, he underscores his research by sharing dozens of anecdotes from his patients and others, and some of them are jaw-droppingly uncomfortable to read. Posen doesn't leave us hanging on those squirmy details for long, though; he offers pages and pages of ideas meant to make the business world better, doable from dual sides of the paycheck. This is one of those books that could potentially benefit anyone who works for a living, and I'm excited to finally see this topic tackled." - Inside Business
