A rousing commentary on the history of labor and the future of work. An Atlantic Edition, featuring long-form journalism by Atlantic writers, drawn from contemporary articles or classic storytelling from the magazine's 165-year archive.

On Work gathers a selection of Derek Thompson's most popular and significant writing on work, life, and the future of jobs. From essays on how mass automation could change society to his widely read treatise on "workism" as our modern religion, Thompson's analysis and forecasts have become fixtures of the twenty-first century conversation about work.
