Can't Even : How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation Hardback

Hardback

Description

An incendiary personal and cultural investigation of burnout "Meticulously researched... astutely observed... extremely enlightening" Guardian "Urgent and insightful book...

Read this and get a much-needed perspective" StylistAre you tired, stressed and trying your best but somehow still not doing enough?

Has the bottom half of your To Do list been locked in place for months?

Is everything becoming work as your job seeps into your evenings, you monetise your hobbies and perform your leisure time on social media?

This is burnout - what increasingly like the defining feature of our lives.

We are exhausted. But burnout is not a personal failing. It is a creeping part of modern culture, shaped by deep-rooted political, historical and economic forces, and it is affecting how we work, parent, socialise and inhabit the world. Anne Helen Petersen identifies burnout with moving clarity - what it feels like and how it manifests across communities.

Through her own experience, original interviews and detailed analysis, she traces the institutional and generational causes of burnout. And, in doing so, she helps us to let go of our guilt and imagine a possible future. Reassuring, insightful and galvanising, Can't Even is essential reading for all of us. "A readable, well-researched guide to a generation" The Times"Genuinely enlightening...

Can't Even is a reminder to the burned out generation that things can be different" Observer
