"Bryan Robinson was way ahead of the times in describing what has now undeniably become the disease of our times. Chained to the Desk provides a rich, comprehensive understanding of how workaholism often mistaken for productivity and fueled more than ever by technology is taking an insidious toll on our lives, individually and collectively. Robinson¹s findings and compelling stories have been reverberating in my mind now for weeks."
—Tony Schwartz, author of Be Excellent at Anything
- "Robinson manages to cut to the heart of so many of today's problems and offers practical suggestions for those of us who have suffered from work addiction. A sober voice in a work-delirious culture. This new breakthrough edition shines the spotlight on the latest neuro-imaging techniques, brain science, and mindfulness practices and their implications for recovering workaholics in finding their resilient zone."
—Dr. Patricia Love, author of How to Improve Your Marriage without Talking about It
"Reorganized for easy reading, updated to include advances in both neuroscience and psychotherapy . . . . The one constant in this edition is the amazing depth of understanding we’ve come to expect from Robinson on the topic of work addiction and his wonderful examples to pass that understanding along to the readers."
—Gayle Porter, Professor of Management, Rutgers University
"This is a comprehensive and highly impressive book that helps workaholics understand and change their behaviors. It presents cutting edge research that reinforces the exercises in the book, and is a great read for both workaholics and the clinicians that treat them."
—Dr. Kristin Neff, author of Self-Compassion: How to Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind
