The first complete guide to burnout, based on groundbreaking new research. It shows how you can tell whether you really have burnout, and helps you shape a strategy for recovery that will work for you.

Are you always exhausted? Unable to feel for others or for life's pleasures? Find it hard to concentrate and take in what you read? You may have burnout.

Burnout is widespread among high achievers in the workplace, in business and in caring professions like health and teaching. Parents with new babies and those caring for the elderly and people with disabilities are also at risk. Although burnout is so common, it's often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed - most commonly as depression.

Drawing on groundbreaking new research, this book hands you the tools to work out whether you have burnout - or not. The good news? It is possible to recover from even severe burnout. The authors show you how to recognise your own burnout pattern, how far you have travelled into burnout territory, and provide a broad-based management approach to help you regain your spark and build your resilience.

With fascinating new insights into the biology of burnout, and stories from people who have brought themselves back from the brink, Burnout is a complete guide for anyone who suspects they may have burnout, for their families, for health professionals and employers.
