Workplaces of the Future Reviews

'Eleven articles on a critically important subject for us all.' - Long Range Planning 'Overall, the book achieves its stated aim. It helps to ground us in reality. It does this in a subtle...way, by helping us to understand the present by looking to the future...With its liberal referencing, this book is recommended reading for those who recognise, not only the centrality of work, but also the essential part that work plays in our lives.' - Athol Barrett, Prometheus 'Based on really interesting empirical work - making for good teaching too.' - Dr A.M. Greene, University of Aston
