The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work

by Alain De Botton

Hardcover, 2009


Pantheon (2009), Edition: First Edition, 336 pages


Alain De Botton explores the world of offices and factories, convention halls, outdoor installations and transportation routes. He spends time in and around some less familiar work environments and discloses both the sheer strangeness and beauty of the places where people spend their working lives. Along the way, De Botton uncovers some of the most compelling questions that we rarely make time to consider: Why do we do it?
