Amazon.de

Why do so many seemingly successful professionals hit the wall in middle age, and decide to either radically scale back their careers or set off in an entirely new direction? Clinical psychologist Steven Berglas, a specialist in success-induced burnout, believes it stems from the "self-handicapping behavior" that baby boomers are exhibiting in record numbers as they climb the corporate ladder and find they aren't happy with what results. Terming the phenomena Supernova Burnout, Berglas defines this workplace ennui as "the constrictive effects of being branded a 'success'" and offers some advice for the psychological distress that is an increasing consequence. In Reclaiming the Fire, he advances his arguments in a serious but accessible manner with references to cultural touch points like Mark Monsky's Looking Out for #1 and help from philosophers such as Friedrich Nietzsche. He analyzes "performance-inhibiting" behaviors ranging from substance abuse to abrupt career changes that he says developed from societal attitudes of the last half century, and suggests a few individual and organizational responses (including his 60 Minutes cure, which relies upon passion and intrinsic motivation to battle career malaise). While not everyone will agree with his assessments and prescribed cures, businesspeople who fit Berglas's description--and human resource managers who deal them--will likely find the material intriguing and potentially helpful. --Howard Rothman

HASH(0x8a875478) von 5 Sternen Comfortable, Erudite, but a little short on solutions 19. Juli 2001
Von Dave - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Berglas is good. His topic hits right at the center of what I'm experiencing. I kept saying "Boy, that's me!" as I read. His case study stories are engaging and pertinent. Once in a while I had to slow wa-a-a-ay down to digest all the psychological principles he drifts into, but patience pays, because those principles, too, are pertinent. I felt that the last chapter of the book ended up being a receptacle for everything else he hadn't mentioned yet, and I had to read the last two chapters twice to see exactly what his proposed solutions were for what he terms "Supernova Burnout". The only reason I didn't give this book a "5" is that while he develops the syndrome's charactersitics very well, and shores up his analysis with sound psychological principle, his proposals for dealing with it, and turning it around, lacked clear direction. I would've liked to have seen more.

HASH(0x8aa46450) von 5 Sternen Excellent contents - Not easy to apply 28. April 2002
Von Dr. Eduard Van Kleef - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book deals with the phenomenon of people who have or have had extraordinary succesful careers and nevertheless found themselves to be extremely unhappy - partially up to the point of self-destruction. This also defines the audience for this book: the people described above or those who take a keen interest in such people.
The book has been written by an adjunct faculty member at Harvard Medical school. The academic level is - as far as I can judge - impeccable. The author quotes on many occasions from actual patient-cases which are common enough that many a reader will recognize some of his or her own headaches. One notices that an effort has been made to write a book that is accessible to the general public. However, the book does maintain a certain academic tone that will be off-putting to some people. There are no exercises, questionaires, or the like that would involve the reader a bit more with the subject matter.
Whoever thinks that reading this book and applying a few quick-fix exercises here and mental readjustments there is going to enable them to continue like before, just happier, is extremely mistaken. Dr. Berglas points out that a lot of the misery discussed is a direct result of some deeply engrained characteristics of our culture. For most people, following up on Dr. Berglas' suggestions will imply a drastic (but doable) change in lifestyle.
Being somewhat of an academic myself with a keen interest in psychological issues, I found the book extremely valuable. The value to you depends on how you personally feel about the above. However, my advice: if in doubt, buy it!

HASH(0x8a8769fc) von 5 Sternen Why the journey is always more fun than the destination 15. Mai 2001
Von Stephen C. Ellis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Reading Dr Berglas is akin to sitting through a great sermon. You intuitively know what your being told, but it somehow clarifies things to hear it from an expert. I found the book to be both readable and rich in content. In my experience most successful people are unable to give themselves the necessary distance to appreciate what is going on in their apparently unhappy lives. As obvious with hindsight as many of Dr Berglas'remedies may seem, I'm certain they will result in life changeing epiphanies for many hardcharging but unhappy individuals. We all hear that "it ain't the money" when we talk about happiness-- Dr Berglas lays out why that's so with inescapable logic, science, and humor. Reclaiming the Fire is about more than simply getting business types back to the grindstone. Dr Berglas' solutions are relevant to everyone who's come to realize that there's probably more to life than what they're experiencing. "Who Moved My Cheese" will tell you why its stupid to be unhappy (three word summary: "get over it")- Dr Berglas tells you what the heck you can do about it. Great book-highly recommend it.

HASH(0x8aa45624) von 5 Sternen When I thought I just had it 20. März 2006
Von San kumar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I started reading the first few chapters, it was like the author was speaking directly to me, knowing what goes on inside my head. Actually, he even made me realize some things I never did myself. The only thing that hurt about this book is the author's writing style and his habit of using superfluous words. I mean when you have to run to a dictionary and back ten times in one chapter, it takes your mind off from the topic. The book is good if you want to understand the problem, but there aren't any real remedies inside this book. Until the very end, we were still discussing the problem and not the cure. Even in the last two chapters there are just more details about the problem yet no actual remedies.

This is a good book and if you're suffering from a burnout and you should get this book because it's a good first step!

HASH(0x8aa457d4) von 5 Sternen BURNOUT - A MAJOR MALADY OF TODAY'S FAST PACED SOCIETY 18. Juli 2001
Von Sandra D. Peters - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a counsellor, I cannot begin to count the number of individuals who come to me suffering from burnout, and the number is on the rise. As this book will point out, there appears to be more baby boomers experiencing burnout than any other group of individuals, but burnout is by no means restricted to baby boomers. Our fast-paced lifestyle, the accumulated demands that are put upon us, some by others and some self-imposed, and the combination of fulfilling demands and responsibilities both in the workplace and at home, can quickly lead to burnout. There are also those who are chronic workaholics, and sooner or later people in that classification will undoubtedly experience burnout.
While many of the solutions provided in this book may appear to be common sense, the common sense is obviously not kicking in for many people or burnout would not be the tremendous problem it is today. Long-term effects can include physical and emotional health problems, addictions, and personal relationship problems, including divorce. The longer the effects of burnout go untreated, the more devastating the outcome can be.
Dr. Steven Berglas is a well-recognized clinical psychologist and has authored an extremely well-written book. Many individuals may be suffering from burnout and not readily recognize the problem; self-diagnosis can be difficult. Through the pages of this book, readers will learn more about burnout and perhaps recognize some of the symptoms within themselves. This is a highly recommended book by an author who is well-qualified in his field.
