Full Description

A fresh approach to modern working life, offering thoughtful solutions on how to cope with professional challenges.

Work can be a route to creativity, excitement and purpose. Nevertheless, many of us end up confused, discouraged and beaten by our working lives. The temptation is often just to blame ourselves, and to feel privately ashamed and guilty. However, as this book lucidly explains, there is a range of well-embedded and intriguing reasons why work proves demoralising, including the evolution of modern work, the role of technology and the mechanics of the economy.

This surprisingly cheering book offers us an invigorating perspective over our working lives--and what we might do at times when our work challenges us almost unbearably.
