This book shows how managers, workers and organization members exhibit symptoms of addiction - denying and avoiding problems, assuming that there is no other way of behaving, manipulating events to maintain the status quo. They examine how organizations can become centres of denial, confusion, overwork, covering up and picking up the pieces to please the boss.

Review:

"Well written and sure to be controversial. Highly recommended for all management collections." -- "Library Journal""A paradigm buster...as key to human wellness as Einstein's theory of relativity has been to modern physics." -- Phil Lane Jr., coordinator, Four Worlds Development Project"Business spends millions of dollars each year trying to figure out how to streamline the corporate structure and make it more productive. A more effective strategy, however, may cost...the price of a new book titled "The Addictive Organization." -- Dick Youngblood, "Star Tribune, " Minneapolis
