Anja  Förster, Peter  Kreuz - Stop Working!


I work, therefore I am?

The economy has run against a conspicuous frontier and the key players in our society are beginning to question the sense of work and life, including the artificial division between the two. It is these people who this book is targeted at, and the demand it makes is, "Stop working and instead do something that completely fulfils you". A different attitude to work, a different economy are possible.

Anja Förster and Peter Kreuz don't mean we should all immediately start lounging about in hammocks, but rather that we should conquer back our work as part of our identities. Not until we again love what we do and work from conviction, not until we stop being successful at the expense of other people will we achieve great things.

"A reading book packed with practical examples; as always with Förster/Kreuz written fluently and entertainingly and with a lot of 'Ah, yes, I see …' moments."

Hamburger Abendblatt
