Overview

A book about people who love their jobs and how they came to find them.---
From the Back Cover: Looking for more out of your career than just a paycheck? "Love Your 84,000 Hours at Work" details the lives of people who love their jobs and how they came to find them.---Something was missing from Andrew Harrison's good life. Rather than waiting for answers to his questions, he left the security of a six-figure, less than 40-hour per week job to seek out people who were excited about their work and life. Inside are personal accounts of how everyday people came to live with purpose, passion, and fulfillment.--- Stories include: - The founder of the 401(k) program - A housewife who went back to school and became the first-ever female Arkansas supreme court chief justice - A Harvard educated lawyer turned sports columnist - A maintenance man with a degree in aerospace engineering - An astronaut who was originally told she was not tall enough to be a stewardess - A strip club manager - A first responder to the 9/11 attacks. --- Each persons story is unique, yet the advice they live and give can be applied to the questions we all ask ourselves. --- Join a new American voice, Andrew Harrison, on a journey to live with purpose and passion - the new American Dream. 'In the spirit of Jack Kerouac and Studs Terkel, Harrison hopped into his car to search for himself through the stories of others.' - WCPN, Cleveland NPR affiliate. 'Andrew has the answer he set out for...' - Charlotte Observer
