We have no time for each other, and our social institutions have no time for us. Menzies (Canadian studies and women's studies, Carleton U.) describes how stress and overwork trashes the individual body and mind, creating everything from sleepless, workaholic and nearly rabid adults to children on a variety of drugs for attention deficit disorders. She also describes how individual crises in stress and timelessness lead to societal stress, and how that stress returns to slap down the individual. She urges individuals to reclaim a feeling for themselves, and to work toward a society that respects the needs of individuals for their own time. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
