Overwhelmed : work, love, and play when no one has the time by Brigid Schulte is an entire tome about how multitasking has affected all Americans, in the workplace, the home, and our health. The first chapter, documenting the author's daily life, made me grind my teeth just reading it; her harried day is stressful from dawn to far into the night. Do people really live this way in 2014? Apparently yes. The good news is that not all cultures do live this way, as the author learns thru her research, which leads her to try to change her way of looking at her life, if not her actual circumstances. A scary book, and a real wake up call. The sum of a life should be far greater than this. Click here to find this book on our Online Card Catalog.
