According to a 2016 survey, one in four UK workers wish they had a different job, so if you’re silently loathing your current career path, then fear not: you are not alone. You are the 25%.
That said, unless you have a rich benefactor or a nose for buried treasure, you probably have to labour on (for a while at least) so, in lieu of submitting your notice tomorrow and spending the rest of your days on a Bali beach, we’ve selected a few books to provide you with a brief respite – and a reminder that things really could be worse.
And while few people are privileged enough to truly love every aspect of their job, if you sincerely hate yours – even after reading this – please do review your options. We must stress that this list is not intended to make you accepting of genuine employment-induced agony. We do not live in the Republic of Gilead.
