Just received my signed copy of this inspiring and beautiful book ‘The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work’ by Alain de Botton, published by Monocle. ‘In Th Pleasures and Sorrows of Work, Alain de Botton reveals why we need an art that can proclaim the intelligence, peculiarity, beauty and horror of the workplace and, not least, its extraordinary claim to be able to provide us, alongside love, with the principal source of life’s meaning.’
