    DescriptionA practical and inspirational guide to examining your career and deciding whether it truly makes you happy--this book will show you the steps it takes to find a job that truly makes you thrive. The desire for fulfilling work is one of the great aspirations of our age. This book reveals explores the competing claims we face for money, status, and meaning in our lives. Drawing on wisdom from a variety of disciplines, cultural thinker Roman Krznaric sets out a practical guide to negotiating the labyrinth of choices, overcoming fear of change, and finding a career in which you thrive. Overturning a century of traditional thought about career change, Krznaric reveals just what it takes to find life-enhancing work.

    Review quote
    "Self-Help Books for the Rest of Us."--"The New York Times ""In an age of moral and practical confusions, the self-help book is crying out to be redesigned and rehabilitated. The School of Life announces a rebirth with a series that examines the great issues of life, including money, sanity, work, technology, and the desire to alter the world for the better."--Alain de Botton, The School of Life Series Editor "The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge."--"The Independent on Sunday" (London) "This is a book that is both clever and prescriptive without being preachy: it makes you think about work in a new way, as well as offering real exercises and solutions for people who are looking for more fulfilling work."--"Los Angeles Review of Books ""An inspirational self-help book with an intellectual pedigree."--"Kirkus Reviews " "Leaving your job in search of more fulfilling opportunities is one of life's most intimidating jumps, and Roman Krznaric's "How to Find Fulfilling Work" is an indispensable handbook."--Peter Holmes a Court, "Australian Financial Review "" "
