Product Description

Review

"This collective work as a whole is breathtaking in its aspiration, and it successfully delivers." -- DD Pennington, BioScience "A refreshingly new gaze." "A genuinely integrative work." "Provides a coherent but rich and complex narrative." "An entirely new way of talking about work." -- KN Farrell, American Journal of Human Biology "Work Meets Life succeeds admirably." "Prepared with intellectual honesty." "Work Meets Life is an exemplary collaboration of minds." -- JS Turner, Metascience "Ambitious..." "A broad view of work in living systems." "Novel and thought-provoking." -- JE Niven, Integrative and Comparative Biology "[A] rewarding read... Goes beyond the classical concepts of work as defined in physics." -- DC Eustice, Choice
