Work isn't working.

We all love to hate our jobs. Everyone moans about the same things: we're not listened to; we're not trusted; we spend our time in pointless meetings; we’re weighed down by bureaucracy; we hate our boss; we're overloaded and work saps time and energy from the rest of our lives.

It shouldn't be like this. Work ought to be, and can be meaningful and fulfilling.

In What's Wrong with Work? Blaire Palmer shows how work can change. Confronting all the big problems head-on, the book shows what you can do about each one, to make work better for you and those around you, now.

Packed with case studies and tips, What's Wrong with Work? is essential reading for the modern office.
