A fresh approach to our careers, offering hopeful solutions to a myriad of professional challenges.


Work can be a source of creativity, excitement, and purpose. Yet many of us find ourselves confused, discouraged, and exhausted by our jobs. We are often tempted to blame ourselves, and to feel privately ashamed by our jobs. However, as this book lucidly explains, there are many reasons why our jobs demoralize us, including the evolution of modern work, the role of technology, and the mechanics of the economy.


The Sorrows of Work offers an invigorating and optimistic perspective on our working lives - and presents the skills and tools we need to overcome any professional challenge.
