Description - The Passion Economy: The New Rules for Thriving in the Twenty-First Century by Adam Davidson
'His book injects some grounded, non-jargon-laden reality into the bland corporate-speak around notions of passion, engagement and purpose.' Financial Times'This is explicitly a book to help a "regular person do well in a rapidly changing economy" and it succeeds precisely because there is no hyperbole or hard sell. No dynamism is required' Financial Times'Inspiration for entrepreneurs that should be required reading in any business school curriculum' Kirkus'The Passion Economy is exactly what everyone needs today: examples of how to thrive in an economy that can seem overwhelming, and crystal-clear explanations of how to succeed.

Drawing on the stories of average people doing exactly this--an accountant overturning his industry, a sweatshop owner's daughter fighting for better working conditions, an Amish craftsman meeting the technological needs of Amish farmers--as well as the latest academic research, Davidson shows us how the twentieth-century economy of scale has given way in this century to an economy of passion.
