Praise for Love the Work, Hate the Job
"With energy, fine reporting, and a sure grasp of the realities of people's working lives, David Kusnet has written one of the most important studies of how people do their jobs since Daniel Bell's Work and Its Discontents. Kusnet makes a case everyone needs to hear: America's workers, including high-tech professionals, want to do their jobs right and they want to do them well, and what they need is more freedom in the workplace to achieve those ends. May Kusnet's book make us realize that liberation and productivity go hand in hand."
--E.J. Dionne Jr., author of Souled Out and Why Americans Hate Politics
"David Kusnet's Love the Work, Hate the Job offers keen analysis and political insights into the plight of American workers struggling to have government pay attention to their needs. This is a must-read for anyone who finds the daily grind, well, grinding."
--Donna Brazile, campaign manager, Al Gore for President, 2000
"Ever wonder why Boeing engineers have to strike and Microsoft whiz kids can't get health insurance? Even if you haven't, you'll love this--and it's no job to read it! Don't wait for them to make this a TV series. With lots of great stories, David Kusnet explains why there's trouble in paradise."
--Thomas Geoghegan, author of Which Side Are You On?: Trying to Be for Labor When It's Flat on Its Back
"With eloquence, wisdom, and a sure grasp of recent history, David Kusnet has single-handedly revived the once-proud craft of labor journalism. Anyone who wants to understand the discontent in high-tech workplaces today must read this book."
--Michael Kazin, author of A Godly Hero: The Life of William Jennings Bryan
and The Populist Persuasion: An American History
