It doesn't have to be that way, however. You can take effective action and this book, written specifically for lawyers, shows you how.

"As I read the third edition of Amiram Elwork's book on lawyer stress, one word came constantly to mind: ESSENTIAL - absolutely so for every lawyer in the country. No one knows as much as Elwork about this topic, and his knowledge is a gift to the profession." --Steven Keeva, author of Transforming Practices: Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life

"Dr. Elwork's book is a standard in the area of lawyer stress. It is concise and highly readable, and yet exhaustive in scope and well- researched. I would assign it as a required reading for all law students and lawyers." --Susan Daicoff, Professor, Florida Coastal School of Law, and author of Lawyer, Know Thyself

"Dr. Elwork delivers solid advice that helps lawyers prevent and manage stress. Lucidly written and grounded on sound psychological principles, this is the leading book on the subject. I recommend it highly." --Larry R. Richard, Director of Leadership and Organization Development, Hildebrandt International

"Writing a book with lasting power means writing a book that serves. This book touches on all the essential elements that lawyers need for creating a balanced life at work and at home. The information is clear, the advice is correct." --George W. Kaufman, author of the Lawyer's Guide To Balancing Life And Work: Taking The Stress Out Of Success.

This is a very insightful read for lawyers at all levels. It gets into a lot more than just the usual type of advice that is widely known. The author clearly understands lawyers and discusses how their personalities contribute to their own stresses, as well as what to do about it.

If you¿re stressed but too busy to read lots of these sorts of books, this is THE ONE to get for your night table. It summarizes everything you want to know about why lawyers are stressed out and what you can do realistically to improve things. The author is clearly experienced when it comes to helping lawyers and uses lots of concrete examples that will be very familiar to most attorneys. If you think you¿ve heard it all before, you¿ll be pleasantly surprised by the number of new ideas the book offers. It¿ll make you reevaluate the way you think and feel about things in ways that most lawyers have not done before. It will change the way you behave and help you find more satisfaction in everything you do. Best of all, there is very little fluff here. The author gets to the point quickly, clearly and logically. It¿s actually easy and fun to read and might even renew your faith in consultants. If you¿re experiencing stress, and what lawyer do you know who doesn¿t, this is really a MUST READ.
