Tracy approaches job dissatisfaction as a problem of codependency, requiring change on the part of the employee. While not actually using the term codependent , she employs many of the slogans and principles of the 12-step movement. The bibliography contains several titles by popular writers of the "recovery" movement, including Melody Beattie and John Bradshaw. Generally, Tracy's advice is sound: employees often have unreal expectations of their jobs or their employers, and they often fail to look to themselves as the real cause of their own frustration and unhappiness. Tracy, a communications consultant, does a competent job of telling how to let go of these expectations and assume responsibility for one's own career. Her case histories are based on examples of managerial workers. Abounding in checklists, this book is written in a popular style that makes for quick reading. Most career employees will recognize themselves somewhere in these pages. For public libraries.
