The Sorrows of Work (The School of Life)

The Sorrows of Work in The School of Life Series is a short book that explains why so many of us are miserable at work. 

The book attests that our misery is because of several factors: specialization, socialization, commercialization, scale, competition, collaboration, equal opportunity, and meritocracy.

Each of these reasons is fully explained in its own chapter. The explanations are very succinct.

The book’s conclusions are a little depressing, but true.
