Críticas:

De Botton's wit and powers of ironic observation are on display throughout what is a stylish and original book. The workplace brings out the best in his writing ( Sunday Times)

Timely, wonderfully readable. De Botton has pretty much got to the bottom of the subject ( Spectator)

Terribly funny, touches us all ( Mail on Sunday)

Brilliant, enormously engaging ( Guardian)

Reseña del editor:

The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work is Alain de Botton's lucid exploration of a subject key to most of our lives

Why do so many of us love or hate our work? How has it come to dominate our lives? And what should we do about it?

Work makes us. Without it we are at a loss; in work we hope to have a measure of control over our lives. Yet for many of us, work is a straitjacket from which we cannot free ourselves.

Criss-crossing the world to visit workplaces and workers both ordinary and extraordinary, and drawing on the wit and wisdom of great artists, writers and thinkers, Alain de Botton here explores our love-hate relationship with our jobs. He poses and answers little and big questions: from what should I do with my life? to what will I have achieved when I retire?

The Pleasure and Sorrows of Work will not only explain why it is we do what we do all day, but its sympathy, humour and insight seeks to help us make the most of it.
