Summary, etc.:
"This sweeping survey of the history of work, from hunter-gatherers to dotcom telecommuters, deftly compresses thousands of years of human evolution into an incisive volume that the Toronto 'Globe & Mail' calls "a page turner of a book". It is a book about work, about the organization and management of work, but it is also a book about people"-- Provided by publisher.
