Fassel, a management consultant and mediator, considers workaholism a true addictive disorder fostered by workaholic organizations obsessed with the corporate pursuit of excellence. Her book addresses the societal dimensions of individual problems as well as the many ways those with body and mind in overdrive become addicted to pressure and the crisis of pushing limits. The author has been active in founding Workaholics Anonymous groups that bring the addict into a nonjudgmental support group of people with sobriety about work, a recovery process that may be more effective than stress management in the treatment of denial. Unfortunately, her book is too fuzzy about defining levels of job stress (not all crisis junkies exhibit dysfunctional coping behavior). While rushaholics won't find the time to read it, Employee Assistance Program helpers and qualified addiction counselors should profit from this book. For larger collections.
