Editorial Reviews


"I would recommend this book to the readership of the Journal, because it deals with important issues that face those in our profession in a reasonably comprehensive way." (Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, 1 July 2011)

"This book is a splendid receipe for survival, crammed with highly-detailed solutions in a practical, light-hearted presentation." (RoSPA Occupational Safety & Health Journal, 1 July 2011)

"This self-help book small in size, certainly considering that it should be manageable for a busy doctor. The presentation is perceived to some extent influenced school book, with sandwiches lists of complaints or actions. . . but it points to both organizational and individual factors that are important to be aware of and that in many cases can be dealt with to get a better workday." (Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, 18 November 2010)

Medicine is a career that most people consider enviable; doctors are needed, respected, and can make a difference between life and death. Yet, increasingly doctors are experiencing stress, dissatisfaction and depression, fuelled by the increasing demands of the health services and the lack of resources to support them.

This book is for any doctor – those whose jobs get them down at times, those who manage others who have problems, through to those who know they are stressed or depressed about the job or relationships at work or at home. Focusing on the causes, symptoms and management of psychological problems experienced by doctors, it explores the stressors of medicine as a career and offers practical solutions. With down-to-earth advice on how to cope better and enjoy your career, based on successful workplace interventions, it is essential reading for all those in the medical profession, from students to seniors.


  • Case histories illustrating real life situations
  • Evidence from a 20-year study of doctors' careers and stresses Guidance for juniors on choosing a specialty
  • Advice on how to deal with difficult people

This is a valuable resource for doctors and trainers alike.

"Without doubt excellent: very lucid, talking with the readers, covering a variety of angles and in a completely non-technical language. The case presentations/stories are very well illustrated and all of them with elements of problem-solving.... It presents evidence-based and experienced-based information and yet does not flood the readers with references. Reading the book itself is therapeutic!"
Professor Hamid Ghodse, University of London, UK
