This insightful book provides, from a Christian perspective, tools to combat the tendency toward too much, whether it's overactivity, overcommitment, or too many material possessions. Swenson offers more than 175 prescriptions for lifestyle changes. This book's solutions are timely, useful, and well-presented. Pastors, lay leaders, managers, and other people with a tendency toward overloaded lives will welcome Swenson's helpful message. And they'll be eager to share their new knowledge with others. (Karl Bakkum, CBA Marketplace, September 1998)
Jesus went to sleep every night without trying to heal everyone. God created every individual with limits. For those who, like one woman in the book, feel that a trip to the dentist is a mini-vacation, respite is offered here. -- Des Moines Register, April 17, 1999

Dr. Swenson's book provides over 170 timeless prescriptions to overcome this syndrome of overload. These principles stand the test of time, and should be transferred into our culture today.
Read it. And buy a copy for your co-worker.
I would recommend this book to anyone who considers themselves teachable and overwhelmed with the issues of life.
The author begins by defining overload and emphasizing the reality of human limitations. He then lists several varieties of overload in our society, and offers prescriptions on how to cure each of them. Swenson is not only a professing Christian, but also a practicing physician. The cures offered here are not so much for the body as they are for the heart, soul and mind.
For me, this book is a definite keeper. I'm recommending it to other church leaders who think busyness is akin to godliness. As Swenson expresses here time and time again, just the opposite is true. Busyness is the enemy of godliness.
If you feel you have too many "irons in fire" at home, at work, at school or at church, this book will bring order and renewal to the midst of the chaos. Try it -- you'll see!
I was Pleasantly (? well...no the news wasn't pleasant, really) surprised to find the answers to my ever-present questions, why is life soooo hectic and why don't I have time to do more fun stuff? I'm s'posed to be RETIRED for heanven's sake!
This should be a basic read for everyone...explains why we feel so harried and frustrated in our culture today.
