I know of no other book that better identifies this other pandemic of work addiction that takes such a toll on individuals and their families, on the companies that foster it, and yet is so revered in our culture. . . . Offers a host of scientific studies, celebrity stories (including his own moving self-disclosures), as well as compassion-based practices to convince your inner workaholic to let you have your life back. This is an important read for this crucial time in our history."--Richard Schwartz, author of No Bad Parts
