Editorial Reviews

Review

"Self-Help Books for the Rest of Us."—The New York Times

"In an age of moral and practical confusions, the self-help book is crying out to be redesigned and rehabilitated. The School of Life announces a rebirth with a series that examines the great issues of life, including money, sanity, work, technology, and the desire to alter the world for the better."—Alain de Botton, The School of Life Series Editor

"The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge."—The Independent on Sunday (London)

"This is a book that is both clever and prescriptive without being preachy: it makes you think about work in a new way, as well as offering real exercises and solutions for people who are looking for more fulfilling work."—Los Angeles Review of Books

“An inspirational self-help book with an intellectual pedigree.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Leaving your job in search of more fulfilling opportunities is one of life’s most intimidating jumps, and Roman Krznaric’s How to Find Fulfilling Work is an indispensable handbook.”—Peter Holmes a Court, Australian Financial Review

This book is not only about guidelines for finding a new job, but it is also a brilliant pathway to discover different sides of your own self. I highly recommend this book to those who feel lost and are looking for a better life for themselves but don't know what should be their first step. This wonderful book helped me to overcome a state of melancholy and gave me the incentive to try again and keep moving forward. It is inspiring and shows the actual possibility of living a life happy!!! It is one of the best books I've read so far.

I found this book at the college bookstore that my wife attended because the title intrigued me both looking back at my career and having kids starting their careers. I wondered if there would be any information that was "new and improved" to use the old cliche. I started reading it and, quite frankly, could not put it down until I finished it. Easy read. Great insights. Well researched. And reiterating the concept that it is more about creating yourself, rather than discovering yourself, is probably the biggest concept that many people get so wrong but the author got so very right. A must read for everyone, regardless of what stage of the career journey you are in now.

I am taking a "radical sabbatical". I just didn't know it until I read this book. If you are looking to make a career change, but are unsure what you want to do this book is perfect. It doesn't provide lists of careers based on personality types or tests, it provides guidance on how to do the job research based on your interests. It helps you come to terms with possible salary changes and education requirements. I'm thoroughly enjoying the process and wish I'd found the books years ago or at the very least 4 months ago when I first lost my job.

I was waiting for much more of this book. I think many examples the writer brings only apply with your are planning to became a entrepreneur. Of course that having your own business you may fell more fulfilled but it is not always the rule.

An interesting and insightful book about finding a job that is fulfilling. Many people today complain that their jobs are not satisfying, and this book aims to help those people, both with philosophy and practicality. It analyzes what "fulfilling work" means and then makes recommendations about how to go about finding it. A short quick read, though one I found full of useful information that I had to put down at times to just take in. Highly recommended, particularly for those seeking a new career path and personal satisfaction.

I heard about this book on "Smart People Podcast" (also highly recommendable), where the author was interviewed - and the book certainly did not disappoint! What a delightful 'how to' guide on finding fulfilling work, not only in terms of practical advice, but in terms of re-shaping the way I was looking at work in the first place. If you are frustrated in your current job and know that you'll have to get out soon before you crash, buy this book!
