Reviews and Endorsements

'The organizational psychologist Pernille Rasmussen has written a brilliant book: "When Work Takes Control". In the book, she describes with great insight what work means to us, and the possible consequence that, in the current climate, we could develop an addiction to it. She explores our complex psychological relationship with work, identifies the danger signs of addiction, and suggests methods for avoiding or counteracting such addiction.'
- Bo Bergstrøm, FOA

'Pernille Rasmussen has written an important and very accessible book about workaholism. This book ought to be available in all workplaces and should be read by all managers.'
- Tina Sørensen, Psychologist
