Would You Believe...bed testers get paid to sleep?!: and other jammy jobs by Richard Platt

A fascinating account of the world of work from prehistoric times to the present day. Covering so much more than the 9 to 5 this book looks at all kinds of work from child labour and slavery to high powered or highly dangerous jobs. Learn about the machines replacing humans in the workplace and the communities who don't even have a concept of what work is. What happens when work is scarce or people are forced to work against their will? And how many people's dreams of leaving work behind come true.
