Lost in Work: Escaping Capitalism, Amelia Horgan
Amelia Horgan poses three big questions here: 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.
For a new generation of workers dealing with Covid19, work from home, hybrid work, burnout, anxiety, and more, author Amelia Hogan offers a clear-eyed look at the work we do and suggests that in a new work in which work as we know it has changed dramatically, “we might think that something needs to change.” Maybe change begins with reading this remarkably revelatory book, because Hogan articulates that gnawing feeling that we have at the office that something isn’t right and that the systems of our civilization are designed to chain and subdue us.
