Thoroughly revised and updated, David Noer's classic book about downsized organizations has never been more relevant.

"You've survived a round of layoffs (or two or three) at work. So why do you feel as bad as if you'd been laid off yourself? You might be suffering from what author and consultant David Noer calls "layoff survivor sickness," a toxic blend of anger, survivor guilt, fear and anxiety that can cause sleepless nights, sinking morale and plummeting productivity."
