Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A practical and inspirational guide to examining your career and deciding whether it truly makes you happy — this book will show you the steps it takes to find a job that truly makes you thrive.

The desire for fulfilling work is one of the great aspirations of our age. This book reveals explores the competing claims we face for money, status, and meaning in our lives. Drawing on wisdom from a variety of disciplines, cultural thinker Roman Krznaric sets out a practical guide to negotiating the labyrinth of choices, overcoming fear of change, and finding a career in which you thrive. Overturning a century of traditional thought about career change, Krznaric reveals just what it takes to find life-enhancing work.

The School of Life is dedicated to exploring lifes big questions: How can we fulfill our potential? Can work be inspiring? Why does community matter? Can relationships last a lifetime? We don't have all the answers, but we will direct you toward a variety of useful ideas — from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts — that are guaranteed to stimulate, provoke, nourish, and console. www.theschooloflife.com
