A series of short essays by Americans working in a number of different professions. This book has been interesting and informative, especially in reading about people with uncommon professions, such as strippers, UPS drivers, slaughterhouse human resources manager, etc.

Having just finished the book, I think that overall it's ok. There are some really interesting essays on some professions that I wouldn't have necessarily thought to be interesting. But then there are also some essays that aren't as interesting (although they could be interesting if you looked at it sociologically about how people approach working in general).
