I read Peter Atherton’s book, Reversing Burnout, with great interest. Much like many Gen X’ers, I am now at the stage of life where I feel I have proven myself and it is time to look at the big picture of my life. A couple of years ago I said to my wife, “I am not yet at the “burnout” stage but I can see it in the horizon.” Peter’s book was just what I needed to read. It guided me to affirm where I am in this stage of life, how I can help the 90 employees in my corrugated box company, and how to do all of that while still running a successful business. It is not an easy task but it is one that, with Peter’s book as my reference guide, I feel much more confident that I can handle the challenge. Thank you for writing this book!
