Good Work by Howard Gardner
Book DescriptionThis groundbreaking book, by three world-renowned psychologists, reveals how professionals succeed in carrying out work that is both expert and socially responsible in relentlessly market-driven times. What does it mean to carry out "good work"? What strategies allow people to maintain moral and ethical standards at a time when market forces wield unprecedented power and work life is being radically altered by technological innovation? These are the questions at the heart of this important collaboration by three leaders in psychology. Enlivened with stories of real people facing hard decisions, Good Work offers powerful insight into one of the most important issues of our time and, indeed, into the future course of science, technology, and communication.
