Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Bosses are maddening. Colleagues are profoundly irritating. And balancing family and work is daunting. So how do we balance success with sanity? How do we progress without burning out? 

Whether you're drowning in a toxic working environment, battling burnout, recovering from redundancy or just struggling to figure out what you actually want from your career, I'm here to help coach you through the shittiness of your work day and help you shift your relationship with your career.

Having worked at giant corporations like Google (where my days consisted of aggressive bosses, complimentary pastries and lots of tears) and scrappy start-ups like The Pool (where I was editor in chief when it all went pear-shaped), I've been through a lot of stressful and downright ridiculous work situations that have given me a lot of insight and experience into the wider problems with modern work, but more crucially, how we can help ourselves in this broken system.

Drawing from lessons learned in my own career and interviews with career experts, as well as individuals from different industries and levels of experience, How to Work Without Losing Your Mind is a relatable and reassuring guide to the messy, stressful and sometimes bizarre side of work that we simply don't talk about enough. It's your tonic after a long hard working week, where you've ugly cried with your colleagues and are exhausted from endless video calls - and are wondering what the hell to do next. I can't fix your job, but I can absolutely help you decide how best to deal with it (even if that means quitting).
