The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work
The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work
by Alain De Botton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.38

1.0 out of 5 stars The ugly face of modernism, 2 July 2016
Absolutely awful. De Bottom embraces modernism in all its ugly glorious. He vainly compares himself to Walt Whitman. He rambles on about different types of work making no sense and trying to get meaning. If he had a clue about economics and history, he would understand the subjects he wants to talk about. The arrogance is further amplified when he goes to India to see fishing. Claiming even an intellectual like himself can see manual labour up front and he is not afraid to look at it. After reading the book I felt physically sick and nausiated. Today's intellectuals are so detached from reality and writing a book with as many describing words as possible a true intellectual maketh not.

1.0 out of 5 stars Middle class guardian reading waffle past off as scientic research, 13 Jun. 2016
I can only confirm the utter awfulness of this books as written by others. Ms Fox is a genuine representation of the Islington guardian reading "intelligentsia" that portends that they know it all and are so educated than everyone else. It really made me feel like vomiting whilst reading her pseudo-leftist-psycho-babble. Most of her writing was totally incomprehensible and had the enjoyability of reading the Oxford Dictionary from A to Z.
From the start she proclaims how she would not touch any sensitive issues and be totally politically correct so as not to offend anyone! oh, and do you know her father is famous and she has lived in France and the US and can speak French?!?
The morality of the British elite has never been at such a low point. Is it any wonder that the UK is such a third rate nation with people like this supposedly our 'betters'...

2.0 out of 5 stars academics know everything, 20 Jan. 2015
Book started off interesting then became dull and very academic... Very out of date and pedalling the same old "investment" strategies as other books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring and a waste of time, 22 Jun. 2014
I found it extremely badly structured and so light hearted to be boring.
Very often the author goes off on irrelevant and boring tangents.
The author quotes from a few other books and does not add anything, you may as well read the original source.
