"Pfeffer examines the heretofore uncharted relationship between
dysfunctional workplace practices and employee health. Dying for a
Paycheck is a compelling and important read for all of us seeking
to produce a healthy and engaged organization."--Gary Loveman,
former CEO, Caesars Entertainment and former president of Consumer
and Health Services, Aetna
"With precision and insight, Pfeffer lays bare the true cost of toxic workplaces, providing a timely wakeup call for any leader who thought a good workplace was simply a 'nice to have'. As Pfeffer shows, it is a fundamental right in our fast changing society. Dying for a Paycheck is an essential book from one of our greatest organizational scholars."--Professor Lynda Gratton, author of the The 100-Year Life: living and working in an age of longevity

"This is simply the most important business book I have read in a decade. As Pfeffer's sharp analysis points out, the relationship between people and organizations is flat-out broken. Offering a range of solutions, Dying for a Paycheck will start a revolution."--Tom Rath, author of STRENGTHSFINDER 2.0.
