Book Recommendation: Why Office Work is Bad for Us and Fixing Things Feels Good

14 12 2010

I was browsing the shelves of my local book store today and came across this little gem. Now it’s not a book for those who want an easy read as the language is pretty high brow but nevertheless very interesting.

Essentially Matthew Crawford discusses the cubicle culture and the reasons behind dissatisfaction in the office workspace. He argues the benefits of working with one’s hands and in my skim read of the book does so effectively.

Worth a look if you are at your local store or ¬£5 of your cash if you fancy a punt online. Click the link below for the Hardcover version (including a ‘look inside’ option). Or you can click the picture above for the paperback version.

Best Wishes
