The idea that work might be fulfilling rather than just painfully necessary is a strikingly recent invention. Nowadays, in prosperous areas of the world, we don't only expect to obtain money through labour, we also, to a greater or lesser extent, expect to find meaning and satisfaction. It's a big ask and explains why career crises are so common.

Unfortunately, it is devilishly hard to understand oneself well enough to know quite where one's energies should be directed. A JOB TO LOVE is designed to help us better understand ourselves in order to locate a job that is right for us. It explores the many myths, traps and confusions that get in our way, and shows how to develop new, effective attitudes and habits.

With compassion and a deeply practical spirit, this book guides us to discover our true talents and to make sense of our confused desires and aspirations before it is too late.

The School of Life is dedicated to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture - believing that a range of our most persistent problems are created by a lack of self-understanding, compassion and communication. We operate from ten physical campuses around the world, including London, Amsterdam, Seoul and Melbourne. We produce films, run classes, offer therapy and make a range of psychological products. The School of Life Press publishes books on the most important issues of cultural and emotional life. Our titles are designed to entertain, educate, console and transform.
