Overview

Take Back Your Time is the official handbook for TAKE BACK YOUR TIME DAY, a national event. Organizers have enlisted the support of colleges, universities, religious organizations, labor unions, businesses, activist groups, and non-profit organizations to create events that will take place across the country, calling attention to the ways overwork and lack of time affect us-at home, in our workplaces, and in our communities-and to inspire a movement to take back our time.
In Take Back Your Time, well-known experts in the fields of health, family therapy and policy, community and civic involvement, the environment, and other fields examine the problems of overwork, over-scheduling, time pressure and stress and propose personal, corporate and legislative solutions. This book shows how wide-ranging the impacts of time famine in our society are, and what ordinary citizens can do to turn things around and win a more balanced life for themselves and their children.

I have had the pleasure of working with John De Graaf through the Take Back Your Time movement and other related items. This book is very good and I think we as Americans need to look at what is truly important in life and start creating a work/life balance. We are overworked as a society and it is time to take back our time. Chris Ortiz, author, 40+: Overtime Under Poor Leadership

Nice pimer for those just thinking about simplicity or old hands at it awhile. Numerous essays that are succinct, yet full of info.
