Book Description:

Work. It's the key to our daily survival and the source of humankind's greatest achievements, from poetry to pyramids to political systems. When we drastically change the way we work—as we did during the Industrial Revolution and as we're doing again in the Information Age—we set in motion forces that restructure societies around the globe, alter basic human relationships, and even transform our physical environment.
