Product description


David Blustein's book on working combines the life stories of people with the centrality of work and its psychological underpinnings in a way that will move the field of vocational psychology forward. This book puts everyday working people and those who need to work front and center in the psychological study of working and in public policy. This book challenged my mind and touched my heart. (Rosie Phillips Davis, Professor, Counseling and Educational Psychology and Research, The University of Memphis)

A masterful book that gives compelling human voice and scientific clarity to the powers of work in contemporary human life. (Ruth Kanfer, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Work Science Center, Georgia Institute of Technology)

So much of the discussion of the future of work is about machines; David Blustein prefers to focus on humans. This book is the valuable and essential missing piece in a critically important contemporary debate, focusing not on what we do for work, but on what work does for us. (Anne-Marie Slaughter, Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University and CEO, New America)
