Career Crash:The End of America's Love Affair with Work
|“Career Crash”, by Barry Glassner, Simon & Schuster, New York, New York, 1994.
Review from inside cover: In the past decade, career crashes have become a predictable crisis in the lives of many
Americans. Based on a landmark study of men and women in their prime earning years, Career Crash is the first book
to explore this epidemic - and to offer help in surviving it.
This timely, encouraging book examines in detail what happens to Americans before, during, and after their careers fall apart. Sociologist Barry Glassner spent four years travelling the country, studying hundreds of successful, college-educated baby boomers who suffered career crashes as a result of corporate downsizing, career disenchantment, and other factors. Coming from such diverse professions as business, education, law, medicine, engineering and the arts, these managers and professionals talk candidly about the warning signs that precede a crash, the devastating emotional reactions that ensue, what family and friends can do to help, and the pivotal stages in putting a career back on course.
