'A brilliant, searing exposé of the lies underpinning work' - Owen Jones
'Work hard, get paid.' It's simple. Self-evident. But it's also a lieat 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.
In this audiobook, beautifully narrated by award-winning actor Libby Mai, 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.
Whether you listen on your commute, or while working from home, Lost in Work will empower you to see beyond the systematic problems you face at your job.
