You Know You're A Workaholic When...

Overview


You live for Monday mornings. You go to the health club to get a stock tip on the Stairmaster. You dread the day in spring when clocks are set forward, robbing you of an hour. You think an ulcer is a badge of courage. You know who you are. You can't help yourself. You're a workaholic, and proud of it.

Overview


You live for Monday mornings. You go to the health club to get a stock tip on the Stairmaster. You dread the day in spring when clocks are set forward, robbing you of an hour. You think an ulcer is a badge of courage. You know who you are. You can't help yourself. You're a workaholic, and proud of it. Expanding on the kindly, humorous, self-effacing tone of their first collaboration, You Know You're a Grown Up When. . . . Jeanne Hanson and New Yorker cartoonist Lee Lorenz now focus on that particular personality disorder familiar to nearly all of us.

This book is a tribute to those beleaguered people whose stomachs cramp up at the idea of a 40-hour workweek, who have never done a jigsaw puzzle, and who refer to a noon love tryst as a meeting. 63,000 copies in print

The perfect gift for the 99% of the human race who think that 99% of the human race are completely lazy. Hanson and New Yorker cartoonist Lorenz offer a tribute to those beleaguered people who live for Monday mornings and go to bed with the goal of solving a personnel problem in dreams. Illustrated throughout.
