By Brigid Schulte

When award-winning journalist Brigid Schulte, a harried mother of two, realized she was living a life of all work and no play, she decided to find out why she felt so overwhelmed. Her search for answers became a journey toward a life of less stress and more leisure. Schulte talks to companies who are inventing a new kind of workplace; travels to countries where policies support office cultures that don’t equate shorter hours with laziness (and where people actually get more done). Enlivened by personal anecdotes, humor, and hope, Overwhelmed is definitely a good read.
