A stimulating read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work (Hardcover)
This book is beautifully written, at times very amusing, intriguingly illustrated (in black and white) and very nicely presented. Most important of all though, by examining such a wide range of occupations, from many different angles, Alain de Botton made me think hard about the nature of work and why I do it. It really opened my eyes too, to the variety of activities people engage in. I would highly recommend it to anyone inquisitive about what occupies other people's waking hours and keen to draw from that their own conclusions on the nature and purpose of work...and perhaps life.
