Burnout: A Guide to Identifying Burnout and Pathways to Recovery is the first complete self-help guide to burnout, based on groundbreaking new research.

Burnout is widespread among high achievers in the workplace, and the problem is becoming more prevalent and profound in its impact. This book contains new evidence-based tools for readers to work out for themselves whether they have burnout and generate a plan for recovery based on their personal situation. Chapters show readers how to recognise their own burnout patterns and how far they may have travelled into burnout territory, and provide research-based management approaches to help them regain their passions and build their resilience.

Offering fascinating new insights into the biology of burnout, and stories from people who have rebounded from it, the book acts as a complete guide for anyone who suspects they may have burnout, for their friends and families, and for health professionals and employers.


'I cried reading parts of this book. Profoundly insightful, with information that is superbly liberating about a phenomenon that imprisons too many of us. Highly recommend.' Dr. Sonia Henry, bestselling author of Going Under

'No one wants to cause burnout in others or be the victim of burnout. Avoiding both calamities requires a much deeper and clearer understanding of what causes burnout and what cures it. This book does precisely that.' Adrian Piccoli, Professor, Gonski Institute for Education

'A must for every senior executive and all HR professionals.' Warren Hogan, banker and economist

'Lawyers need to read this book: burnout doesn’t have to mean the end of your career.' Alice Cooney, Principal Solicitor, Office of Public Prosecutions Victoria
