About the Author

Theodore Zeldin has been named 'one of the forty world figures whose ideas are likely to have a lasting relevance to the new millennium' (Independent on Sunday), and 'one of Britain's leading intellects' (Management Today). His books Conversation and An Intimate History of Humanity are international bestsellers. For his studies of France he has been called 'a modern Balzac', 'not just funny, [but also] intelligent, loving, caustic, learned, light-hearted, serious, brilliant' - and he has been made a Commander of the Legion d'Honneur. He has won the Wolfson Prize for history, been elected to the British Academy and the European Academy and been awarded the CBE. He is an Emeritus Fellow of St Antony's College and an Associate Fellow of Green Templeton College in Oxford.

There is certainly much prophetic in this engaging book - Financial TimesZeldin is an engaging travel companion, flitting between biography and philosophy with an easy charm - IndependentEclectic, ambitious and highly thought-provoking - Sunday TimesA challenge and a success . . . He is particularly good and funny on work and the apparently catastrophic affair we are having with management science - Literary Review
