Baker & Taylor
Explains how employees can cope with business-related stress and its toxic impact and promote a positive change in one's work environment

Blackwell North Amer
In Toxic Work, Barbara Reinhold draws from current body-mind research and twenty-five years of career planning experience to explain what makes work "toxic," and how you can make life- and health-enhancing changes at work - or revitalize a career that's not right for you, even in this era of downsizing and change. Positive solutions to toxic work situations include dealing with your own self-defeating behaviors, habits, and "hot spots"; developing new ways of managing difficulties with colleagues and bosses; analyzing your own physical energy cycles; and realizing, over the course of your working life, your need for growth, learning, and change.
Toxic Work discusses the "first alert" signals from your body that your work is becoming toxic; the essential strategies for keeping toxicity at bay; healthy ways to manage stress, anger, and the feeling of being out of control at work; and making major changes to revitalize your career and design a nontoxic life.
The prescription for any poisonous work environment or stalled career is taking charge; tuning in to your own needs, desires, and capabilities; and organizing yourself for positive change. Toxic Work is a comprehensive and inspiring guide to creating opportunity even in the most challenging situation.
