Entrepreneur or precarious worker? These are the terms of a cognitive dissonance that turns everyone’s life into a shaky project in perennial start-up phase. Silvio Lorusso guides us through the entreprecariat, a world where change is natural and healthy, whatever it may bring. A world populated by motivational posters, productivity tools, mobile offices and self-help tech ...more

2020 EDIT: Re-reading this now FEELS different, as so many more people have become precarised this year. WOOF...everyone should read this.

I got this book at the Chicago Art Book Fair, I was immediately drawn in by it. With the work I do I'm often questioning pyramid schemes and Instagram influencers. This definately gave me great language and context for thinking about these things! This book flows between being dense and easy to read. This is the first time I've been introduced to the idea of p

I really really loved this--Lorusso does a great job of gathering together the work of a bunch of different theorists and making their work very accessible and in conversation with one another, and then offers up really great examples of how these systems that the theorists he talks about work in real life. The chapter on GoFundMe is particularly damning, and goes farther than the larger critiques of the use of the site to cover costs that should be covered by free healthcare. I want like every ...more

Articulates so many of my perceptions on the world of entrepreneurship, and does it with memes. Such a plus.
👌

(Only gave it 4 starts cause some examples are more anecdotal and less "science-y")

Gran bella lettura, che si inserisce nel filone di critica al capitalismo post-Fisher. L'autore descrive con grande sistematicità le dinamiche di quello che chiama "imprendicariato", ovvero l'intersecarsi di spirito imprenditoriale e precariato nel mondo del lavoro odierno. Una tendenza che fa comodo al Capitale per risolvere allo stesso tempo carenza di offerta e di domanda, minimizzando i propri rischi e le tutele dei lavoratori che sono sempre più costretti a uno stato di formazione e reinven ...more

This book delves in the relationships between precarity and entrepreneurship (the American neoliberal dream). With extensive sense of humor, the Entreprecariat discusses the values behind book titles such as "The Start Up of You", LinkedIn platform slogan "a CV that never sleeps", the jargon used on social media platforms ("endorsement") as well as the overall ranking systems that sustain such platforms. A very beautiful reflection on powerlessness closes the book. The text is illustrated with m ...more

It’s great to know a book like this exists and that more people should read it. After all the majority of the working class falls under these types (as do I) as it labels them, and it’s breakdown of society’s evolution in the workforce in history until now is well defined.

The book touches on very contemporary questions of how we work and what we want to find through working. It was interesting to read about digital nomadism, different types of entrepreneurialism and digital platforms like Fiverr and GoFundMe.

In general, the book is really thorough, it goes into details and it is fairly critical. I didn’t enjoy the myriad of references to philosophers and theoreticians as it confused me too much. A lot of times I lost the connection, so I had to go back. So in ge

Libro consigliatissimo, che riesce a dare una panoramica sulla teoria contemporanea intorno al precariato ed al suo intreccio con l'imprenditorialità, affermandosi per me come perfetto testo-trampolino sull'argomento.
Dalle riflessioni sulle modifiche radicali all'umano che il precariato apporta alle implicazioni sindacali di Linkedin, Fiverr e GoFundMe.
Non risparmia le sferzate nel vivo come in Teoria della Classe Disagiata e avvisi ai naviganti.

Ho particolarmente apprezzato la seppur timida con
