My Job, My Self Work and the Creation of the Modern Individual by Al Gini

In My Job My Self, Gini plumbs a wide range of statistics, interviews with workers, surveys from employers and employees, and his own experiences and memories, to explore why we work, how our work affects us, and what we will become as a nation of workers. My Job, My Self speaks to every employed person who has yet to understand the costs and challenges of a lifetime of labor.


[An] entertaining and thoughtful meditation on the nature of work in human life .-- Publishers Weekly
