Work: A Deep History, from the Stone Age to the Age of Robots
 

In tackling a topic as vast as “work,”anthropologist James Suzman approaches human history through a different lens. From the origins of life on Earth to our ever more automated present, it challenges some of our deepest assumptions about who we are. Drawing insights from anthropology, archaeology, evolutionary biology, zoology, physics, and economics, Suzman shows that while we have evolved to find joy, meaning and purpose in work, there’s a lot more to the story.
