Book Review - On Work and Life Balance

Harvard Business Review on Work and Life Balance
HD 4904 .H345 2000

This book takes an academic look at how individuals balance their work life with the rest of their life. Chapters contributed by a number of authors address the drives of success and workaholism as well as the pull of children and family. These authors recognize the changing landscape of the office, asking separately about what men want out of their work-home balance and comparing that the desires of women. Authors also examine burn-out, alternative work sites, and second careers, trends that seem to be on the rise. This collection is very readable, but not heavily footnoted.
