About this title

Synopsis:

Get more out of life--it's who you are, not what you do.

Review:

You Are More Than Your Job is a book for anyone who has come to the realization that it is not possible to find happiness through a career alone. Whether unemployed, underemployed, or simply frustrated with the job that does little more than pay the bills, the advice has always been -- find another job. Unfortunately, the solution for most working men and women is seldom that simple. We need to derive meaning and satisfaction from the things done outside of a nine-to-five job site existence in order to discover that the really meaningful work is the work we do on ourselves. Job work is important, but if we do not put it in its proper perspective, we risk missing something vital. In this book, people who have faced or are facing employment crises tell how their experiences have opened their eyes to new ways of thinking about work and about themselves. Drawing from their stories, from ideas expressed by philosophers and psychologists, and from his own experiences and observations, author Earl Harrison shows how regardless of our particular career path or employment situation, we do not have to depend upon the "right" job to make us happy. Instead, we can find greater self-esteem and fulfillment by understanding and appreciating the differences between making a living and making a life. You Are More Than Your Job is "must" reading for anyone drawing a paycheck -- or wanting to. -- Midwest Book Review
