“Schulte takes a purely practical and secular approach to a question that philosophers and spiritual teachers have debated for centuries--how to find meaningful work, connection, and joy--but her research is thorough and her conclusions fascinating, her personal narrative is charmingly honest, and the stakes are high: the "good life" pays off in 'sustainable living, healthy populations, happy families, good business, [and] sound economies.'” ―Publisher's Weekly starred review

Overwhelmed... brings a fresh perspective and needed insight into what's too often called the problem of the work-life balance.” ―Elle

“An unexpectedly liberating investigation into the plague of busyness that afflicts us all.” ―The Washington Post

“This artful blend of memoir and cultural exploration asks hard questions about how to create a well-lived life... For Lean In fans, and everyone who feels overwhelmed.” ―Booklist

“An eye-opening analysis of today's hectic lifestyles coupled with valuable practical advice on how to make better use of each day.” ―Kirkus

“Just reading the first chapter of Overwhelmed may be cathartic: as bad as it is... at least you're not the only one... Overwhelmed is Schulte's attempt to not merely survive but also unpack and analyze the quintessentially modern and increasingly universal experience of feeling utterly unable to cope. Putting her own crowded life (two children, thriving career) on the slab for dissection, Schulte tries to figure out how we got here and how we can get out of it.” ―Time

Overwhelmed is a superb report from the front lines of the sputtering gender revolution. Brigid Schulte takes up the perennial problem of women's ‘second shift' with fresh energy and fascinating new data, effortlessly blending academic findings and mothers' lived experiences, including her own often hilarious attempts to be both the perfect parent and a successful full-time journalist. Before you embark on parenthood, before you volunteer to make cupcakes for a school party or stay up late to finish a fourth grader's science project--and definitely before you pick up another copy of Martha Stewart Living--read this book!” ―Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed: On(Not) Getting By in America

“Reflecting on her meticulous research, searching her feelings, and renegotiating the division of emotional labor with her husband, Tom, Brigid Schulte offers us a well-written and timely book, both witty and wise.” ―Arlie Hochschild, author of The Second Shift: Working Families and the Revolution at Home

“Beautifully written, with searing facts, engaging stories, illuminating history, and wry personal observations. A must-read by a truly perceptive author!” ―John de Graaf, editor of Take Back Your Time: Fighting Overwork and Time Poverty in America

“Why is life so insanely busy? What happened to ‘leisure' time? Tired of the modern hamster wheel, Brigid Schulte set out to find a better way to live. Her voice is delightful, her findings surprising and hopeful. Overwhelmed is a passionate, funny, very human book that reads like a detective story.” ―William Powers, author of Hamlet's BlackBerry: Building a Good Life in the Digital Age

“Overwhelmed is a time management book that's not just about how to be more productive and effective--it's about the broad and fascinating role time plays in our emotional satisfaction, our physical health, and even our notions of gender equality. The more overwhelmed you feel, the more crucial it is to take the time to read this important book.” ―Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

“Every parent, every caregiver, every person who feels besieged by permanent busyness, must read this book. A new wave of research, experience, and insight is challenging deep assumptions about why we have to live and work the way we do. Overwhelmed is a wake-up call and an exhilarating prescription for change.” ―Anne-Marie Slaughter, president and CEO of the New America Foundation and author of "Why Women Still Can't Have It All"

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Helpful Advice am 11. Oktober 2014
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
‘Overwhelmed’ written by Brigid Schulte is an interesting work backed by extensive research on the subject of how much fast pace and stress that we are constantly exposed leaves us time to rest and if is out there today something at all that we can call leisure.

Can we even define our spare time? Is it when we do not do anything, spending time in leisure and solicitation, or the time that we spend to feel better, to do something that makes us happy, what not one pushes us to do? According to the nice quote from someone at the University of Iowa, true leisure is “…that place in which we realize our humanity” and judging by all there are less and less such time, or already it vanished for most of us.

Brigid Schulte, The Washington Post journalist and part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize, from 2010 conducted an extensive research and spoke with numerous scientists, sociologists, and especially working parents to investigate what are the factors that contribute to our feeling being constantly overwhelmed, having no time for anyone, most important ourselves.

On the pages of the book Brigid Schulte compares a view on workplace and family subjects from the American angle by comparing it to how these issues are dealt with in Europe and in other parts of the world. She speaks about progressive offices that are seeking to invent some new ways of working, all with the goal to enable people with children to still feel like human beings, not like machines which have planned every minute of life caring only for others and working.

‘Overwhelmed’ is extremely easy and interesting to read, while every reader in a greater or lesser part will be able to identify with what the author has put forward in her work, making her book extremely valuable in the field she covers.

As a convenient add-on author did not hesitate to share her own experiences and that all together makes her book a good choice if you are interested in this topic.

Overwhelmed is a must read for today's workforce. 11. März 2014
Von Laurie C Kelley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Like no book out there, Overwhelmed gives us deep insight into the ways in which our lives have become so complicated in today's fast-paced society. Heavily researched, the author also looks at workplace and family dynamics in other parts of the world, in contrast to our American practices. The book will make you think more deeply about the way you are spending the precious gift of time, especially if you are a parent, and even if you aren't. Additionally, people who are not caregivers will get a deeper understanding of the demands of balancing family needs with our careers. It'll make you think, laugh, reflect and hopefully move forward with more purpose in working through this one and only life. I loved it. So much I even found/made time to read the entire book.

Read this and be inspired that change is possible 12. März 2014
Von Jessica DeGroot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As someone who has been involved in these issues professionally and personally for the last 20 years, I can honestly say this is the best book I have read on the topic. Not only does it provide cutting edge reporting, Brigid Schulte’s willingness to share her own experiences wrestling with these issues, also makes it a real page turner.
Throughout the book she provides an excellent analysis of what contributes to our sense of overwhelm and how badly it is impacting us. However, she also inspires us with a number of important “bright spots” – including the description of a number of truly modern workplaces that aren’t just saying they support their employees to live whole lives, they are actually making it happen.
Too often people feel stuck by the web of forces that make a more satisfying approach to work and life feel out of reach. Schulte’s book will help you better understand the challenges and inspire you that change is possible.

Great topic but narrow focus on working moms. 15. April 2015
Von Elisabeth Forrest - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book left me with more questions than answers and didn't provide much in the way of practical information on how to lead a calmer and less overwhelmed life. To be fair, there was great general information and some very fascinating studies discussing time use, particularly in comparison to other countries. I enjoyed reading the book and found it to be well written and much of the information to be interesting, it just wasn't very constructive in terms of advice on de-cluttering my time or being less overwhelmed by all I [feel I] need to do.

My main complaint with this book is its bias toward working mothers. I've got news for Ms. Schulte; stay-at-home parents and single working folks with no kids have the same issues with being overwhelmed. There is more going on in our society than simply employers wanting more face-time at the office or being inefficient in how we use our time. My kids are grown, I own my own business and can set whatever hours I like and I am overwhelmed. Ditto for my husband. Ditto for my single twenty-something daughter (and my other twenty-something daughter, and my twenty-something son, and from what I can tell, most of their cousins and friends). I was lucky enough to be able to stay at home with my kids through the bulk of their childhoods and guess what? I was WAY overwhelmed and incredibly guilty about it. I mean come on, what's up with being supported by a spouse and having three kids in school all day and still being overwhelmed? What was wrong with me? Luckily I knew lots of women, and a few men, in the same predicament so I know it wasn't just me. Nothing changed when they all moved out - still overwhelmed trying to get it all done. My mother and her friends (in their 80s and 90s) say things are different now - THEY feel overwhelmed in a way they didn't in the past. Something is going on beyond just demanding jobs and I'm looking for a book that addresses that issue.

Anyway, bottom line is this is an interesting and well written book (major kudos for any and all good writing!) with a narrow focus and not much in the way of real help in overcoming 'overwhelm'.

Underwhelmed: How a Deceptive Title is Useful for Making a Bestseller 25. Mai 2015
Von Desert Rat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very deceptive title. It makes you think that there will actually be tips about how to manage these areas of your life but you can head straight to the appendix and get the gist of it. I am a 45 year old married man with four kids trying to make it all work and naively thought this may have some useful information for me to survive through the days. It is actually a feminist lament of what is holding back American moms from having it all. I couldn't help thinking that the feminist movement is going on 50 years now, and from reading this, women don't seem to be much better for it. Of course, at the end of the day, it is still the men who need to get with the program and figure it out. I slogged through it only to warn anyone who thought it might contain valuable information. If you would like to wallow in discontent then it is for you. By the way, my wife read some of this and was amazed that I could stick with the nonsense all the way to the end. She would have thrown it on the trash heap after the first 25 pages.

Here are the main themes:
1) Men are not doing enough work around the house and contributing sufficiently to childrearing. She uses her husband as an example who sits on the back porch smoking a cigar while she cleans up the dishes after dinner and on Thanksgiving grabs a six pack of beer and heads to his friends house to help him cook his turkey while she is left to deal with Thanksgiving dinner by herself. (I have to say that I would never do this to my wife, I don't know any husbands who would do this, nor would any husband who cares at all. Maybe she chose poorly?? He needs to learn - Happy Wife, Happy Life.)
2) Government needs to take a more active role in childcare so that parents are freed up to have more leisure time (also note, she indicates that the government is probably better at it anyways, since natural parents cannot possibly give kids the "stimulation" they need)
3) Europe is the model for how to do it right with childcare and leisure time. She uses Denmark as the example of how awesome and friendly the government is to couples who have kids with their childcare and work policies. Instead of them being some enlightened pixies, could it be because in 1983 the fertility rate dropped to 1.38 children per couple and the country was in danger of falling into economic ruin so they needed to make it more attractive to have kids? Japan is going through the same thing now as well as a number of other European countries.
4) Finally, although it is a small mention, let's not forget the positive role models that gay couples can be. "To get the stalled gender revolution moving again, heterosexual couples need look no further than gay couples." You can read the rest if you are interested.

So, at the end of the day, how do we pay for all this? Let me guess, higher taxes and more entrenched government in our lives. Also, once we accept that others are more capable of raising our kids than the parents are, we have tipped over the edge. How long has government been raising kids - about 100 years tops. How long have parents been raising kids? The rest of recorded and unrecorded history. I think we've done alright.

The only useful tips I can glean are: you can't get everything done so figure out a way to make peace with your self, stop the fallacy of multitasking, make lists so you can free your mind from the constant nag of things to do. That's it, and I already do these. If you choose to buy this one, good luck. Try "Driven to Distraction at Work." It has many flaws but is semi-useful.

Must read for busy parents!!! 11. März 2014
Von Daniel Bender - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Even with massive amount of research presented Mrs. Schulte personalizes the information in a way that makes this a compelling read. I had so many ah-ha moments while I read this starting with the idea of contaminated time. It was also incredibly helpful to read about how we look at the leisure needs of men and women. There's just to many tidbits to share but you definitely walk away from the book feeling the need to free up personal time. Her arguments are incredibly effective.
