Abstract:  This is a guide to restructuring your time at work in ways that are alternatives to the traditional 9 to 5 routine. Among the options examined are job sharing, permanent part-time, leaves of absence, phased retirement, and compressed work weeks. O'Hara suggests that one or more of these alternatives may be more suited to many working Canadians, and may also benefit employers. He covers taking stock of one's life, making decisions about money, and persuading one's employer to agree to a flexible time arrangement. A thorough and systematic book, though marred by its uncritical acceptance of traditional employer-employee relationships. It stops short of suggesting that there are alternatives to these.
