Product description

Review

If you are part of, think about, care about or are in any way influenced by the world of work, and who is not, this powerful and moving book is for you -- Sir Graham Day, Financial Times

A necessary and important contribution to our understanding of the way we live now -- Hamish McRae, Director Magazine

Synopsis

In this extraordinary, life-affirming book, Charles Handy reaches for a philosophy beyond the impersonal mechanics of business organizations, and beyond material choices. He presents a powerful alternative vision, where life and work are regrounded in a natural sense of continuity, connection and purposeful direction. 'The empty raincoat is to me, the symbol of our most pressing paradox. If economic progress means that we become anonymous cogs in some great machine, then progress is an empty promise. The challenge must be to show how paradox can be managed.' - from "The Empty Raincoat".
