Lost in Work : Escaping Capitalism, Paperback / softback Book

Lost in Work : Escaping Capitalism Paperback / softback

Part of the Outspoken by Pluto series

Paperback / softback


***Evening Standard's best non-fiction 2021***'A brilliant, searing expose of the lies underpinning work' - Owen Jones'Work hard, get paid.' It's simple.

Self-evident. But it's also a lie-at least for most of us. For people today, the old assumptions are crumbling; hard work in school no longer guarantees a secure, well-paying job in the future.

Far from a gateway to riches and fulfilment, 'work' means precarity, anxiety and alienation. Amelia Horgan poses three big questions: what is work?

How does it harm us? And what can we do about it? While abolishing work altogether is not the answer, Lost in Work shows that when we are able to take control of our workplaces, we become less miserable, and can work towards the transformative goal of experimenting with 'work' as we know it.
