THRIVING IN 24/7: Six Strategies for Taming the New World of Work

Sally Helgesen, Author . Free Press $25 (272p) ISBN 978-0-684-87303-9

Between Palm Pilots, cell phones, wireless e-mail and other technological innovations, people are frantically juggling work and personal tasks simultaneously, reports business consultant Helgesen (The Female Advantage). To help readers flourish in these hectic conditions, she proposes a six-step program that allows readers to identify what they want to do and to take control of their own work (even if employed by someone else); build a network of colleagues and friends; and allow time for rejuvenation. Though Helgesen's strategies are reminiscent of the "simplicity" movement, her real life anecdotes yield insights into effectively managing today's pressures. (Aug.)
