A Wall Street Journal bestseller

Winner of the 2004 Publishers Marketing Association Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Career Book

Shows the millions of workers who can't afford to leave their jobs in today's slow economy how to find satisfaction right where they are---the What Color Is Your Parachute? for workers who aren't changing jobs

Features 26 practical, easy-to-implement strategies in the A-to-Z format that made Love 'Em or Lose 'Em so universally appealing

Whether for fear of an uncertain economy or reluctance to deal with the inevitable stresses of looking for work, many people feel unwilling or unable to change jobs. So they simply "quit on the job." They disengage, produce less, and bide their time in quiet dissatisfaction, making themselves, and often their coworkers, family, and friends miserable. But there is an alternative.

Love It, Don't Leave It provides readers with 26 ways to make their current work environment more satisfying. Presented in an appealing, accessible A-to-Z format, Love It, Don't Leave It includes strategies for improving communication, stimulating career growth, balancing work with family, and much more. Designed for workers at any age and at any stage, Love It, Don't Leave It helps people assume responsibility for the way their work lives work. Readers who try just a few of the strategies in this book may find that the job they want is the job they already have.
