LoveReading Says

Like the other books in the Lessons for Life series from The School of Life, A Job to Love takes a fresh look at a hot latter-day topic as it invites readers to find more fulfilment at work through understanding themselves in a clearer, more honest fashion.

Framed in the context that the idea work might be fulfilling (as opposed to merely being necessary) is a relatively recent phenomenon, A Job to Love sets out to unpack myths and obstacles that hinder our chance of loving our work. 

The backdrop shared offers empathy and understanding: “We should not blame ourselves for our confusions. Our culture has set us a devilish problem: promising us that fulfilling jobs exist while leaving us woefully unprepared for how to discover our own aptitudes and appetites”. Which is where this book comes in — A Job to Love is largely given over to helping readers discover where their talents and skills lie, with practical exercises fostering self-discovery, and an honest admission that loving your job “enough” is “in itself, a very grand achievement.”
