About the Author:

Anne Wilson Schaef, Ph.D., is the bestselling author of Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much, Women's Reality, and Co-Dependence, among others. Schaef specializes in work with women's issues and addictions and has developed her own approach to healing which she calls Living in Process. Her focus now is helping people, societies, and the planet make a paradigm shift.

From Library Journal:

Schaef ( When Society Becomes an Addict ) and Fassel (an organizational consultant) add a new dimension to our understanding of the institutions in which we live and work. They explain the reality of addiction, apply it to four levels of organizational behavior, and explore fully the negative effects of the active addict's and co-dependents' behavior in organizations. The authors describe how organizations act as addictive substances for employees by creating cultures of workaholism reinforced through reward structures, and how the organization itself can function as an active addict. Well written and sure to be controversial. Highly recommended for all management collections. Jane M. Kathman, Coll. of St. Benedict, St. Joseph, Minn.
