A timely, insightful, and essential guide to conquering stress from the bestselling author of The Little Book of Stress Relief.

From the bestselling author of The Little Book of Stress Relief comes the definitive guide to treating ? and eliminating ? excessive stress in the workplace. Dr. David Posen, a popular speaker and a leading expert on stress mastery, identifies the three biggest problems that contribute to burnout and low productivity: Volume, Velocity, and Abuse. He shares revealing anecdotes and offers clear descriptions of the biology of stress to illustrate how downsizing, economic uncertainty, and technology have made the workplace more toxic than ever. Most importantly, he offers practical advice and easy techniques for managing the harmful symptoms and side effects of stress.

Witty, engaging, and accessible, Is Work Killing You? touches on everything from meetings to tweeting, from fake work to face time, from deadlines to dead tired, and more. With this book, Dr. Posen gives us the tools to stop harming our most valuable resource ? ourselves.

David Posen, M.D., is a physician, popular speaker, and the bestselling author of The Little Book of Stress Relief, which sold more than 50,000 copies and has been translated into five languages. His previous books also include Staying Afloat When the Water Gets Rough and the classic, Always Change a Losing Game. His writing has appeared in Canadian Living, Reader's Digest, Men's Health, USA Weekend, and his TV and radio appearances have aired nation-wide. He lives in Oakville, Ontario.

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
