Explains a lot about why we all feel so harried today.

Very informative book. I learned a lot about how people used to live - not what I expected. Good information, makes you stop and think about how much time you spend working and wonder why!!!

Interesting reading, but would be more so if there were not burdened down with so many statistics.
Being a bestseller, one would think this would have been a "call-to-arms" to bring the unions back, bud sadly over fifteen years later the lack of time off has decreased even more. I know at my job it is less than one day then even last year, & that they wanted to take Independence day away from us this year (& already have it on the agenda to so do next year). Is this what our country has come to---that we cannot even have the holiday off that was to celebrate this nation's freedom???
