Description - Work: A History of How We Spend Our Time by James Suzman
A revolutionary new history of humankind through the prism of work, from the origins of life on Earth to our ever-more automated present
'A fascinating exploration that challenges our basic assumptions of what work means'
Yuval Noah Harari
'One of those few books that will turn your customary ways of thinking upside down'
The work we do brings us meaning, moulds our values, determines our social status and dictates how we spend most of our time. But this wasn't always the case: for 95% of our species' history, work held a radically different importance.
How, then, did work become the central organisational principle of our societies? How did it transform our bodies, our environments, our views on equality and our sense of time? And why, in a time of material abundance, are we working more than ever before?
