#2537 Another engaging career treatise on the so-called revolutionary New Economy. Presents a “New Economy” view of work in America the “Free Agent” who contrasts dramatically with the 20th century “Organization Man.” Outlining the new work revolution, this book focuses on the “Free Agent” who is transforming the way we work and live: the job-hopping, tech-savvy, fulfillment-seeking, self-reliant, independent worker. Challenges many conventional notions of work and life in a changing and turbulent economy. A stimulating read but often over-stated and unrepresentative of reality (focuses on a unique “slice of life” that supposedly involves 30 million people who are increasingly difficult to find these days!) in trying to be profound about a self-proclaimed revolution that may or may not be as revolutionary as it is cracked up to be. Researched and written before the collapse of the Internet economy in 2001, an economy that helped shape what now appears to be an overly hyped workplace and lifestyle revolution. 2001. Hardcover: $24.95.
