Enjoy spending hours of your life pondering the definition of a single word? You will love this book. Otherwise it is boring, and delves far too deeply into the meaning of the word "occupation." Let's just choose a definition and move on with our lives. With every sentence you can feel the authors trying to justify their careers.

This book was very insightful of the topic of occupation. Opening you eyes to many jut and unjust occupations in society, a well as the studies that show how people use their time. Very informal and good book to read if you want a new light to shine on occupation

The condition of the book was just as described, and it came on time if not a bit earlier. I was satisfied with this purchase.
