      For a professional psychologist, professor teaching work-shops around the world, Tom seems very clueless sometimes. When it comes to the stories from his past, at least. The authors were surprised that Turkish students got offended when he corrected their English, and I imagine he wasn't there as an English teacher. And the story of a poor sick boy really broke my heart.It's also a bit funny to see how they overuse exclamation marks, and some jokes are very adorable because they are the kind of [...]

      Good analysis of burnout, but continues to leave several issues unresolved. For example, talks about the importance of development of identity in helping professions two years out of graduate school, and states the importance of needing good mentorship and healthy relationships in the agency. So what happens when you don't have any of those things? What if you cannot create a "greenhouse"? Continues to be a book on burnout that blames the worker. I do that enough myself.

      Not a page-turner. But loaded with relatable insights and strategies to prevent and respond to burn-out and build resilience in high-contact professions such as clergy, mental health practitioner, counselor and teacher. Read it for a class but I believe the exercises in it and the examples mentioned will stay with me for a long time professionally and personally.

      Excellent resources for practitioners and anyone who works in the caring professions. And teachers! Well written, easy to read, includes self reflection exercises to help you create a plan to beat burnout.

    5. Nancy

      I really like this book so far. It's practical and helps me think about ways to prevent getting burned out at work.

    6. Ben

      Absolutely brilliant. If you are practising and heaven't read this then it should be the next thing you read. Period.
