You Deserve a Break


| September / October 2003

October 24, 2003 will be the first official Take Back Your Time Day, a consciousness-raising event for Americans, who enjoy less free time than anyone else in the industrialized world. The date is significant: By the last week of October the average American has put in as many hours on the job as most Europeans do all year. For more information and events in your area see www.timeday.org. The official handbook of this new movement, Take Back Your Time (Berrett-Koehler, $14.95), edited by John de Graaf, explores the social, economic, spiritual, and personal costs of overwork, and offers practical advice on how to take back your time.
