This is an Invitation to take your power back! What happened to the spark you had as a child that powered curiosity, engagement with life, and creativity? Has it burned out? Are you feeling emotionally and physically exhausted and cynical, wondering if you've got what it takes to make it in this rapidly changing world? Burnout looks a lot like depression, but it's not a biological bogeyman that medication or simple stress management can cure. It's a disorder of hope and will that sucks the life out of competent, idealistic, hardworking people like you; and it will be an ongoing challenge for years.

I couldn't finish this book. It was too spiritual and lost me the minute I realized she was quoting facebook friends.

I really wanted to get into this book because of the relevant subject matter, but had to put it down not very far into the first chapter. For readers who subscribe to New Age tenets, I believe this will be a great read, but for Christian (female) readers, I would recommend instead the biblical-based wisdom from "Sanity Secrets for Stressed-Out Women" by Sue Augustine. I will refrain from actually giving a rating since I didn't complete the book, but think that there are some valuable points made - I personally could have done without some of the others, but that is simply my opinion on the matter!
