            This essential book by behavioural scientist and journalist Arthur C. Brooks is based on a feature he wrote for The Atlantic, which has been read over one million times and remains one of the magazine's most popular articles. This is a happiness strategy for what Brooks sees as o...ur inevitable professional decline, and a way to convert that decline from being a source of regret into an opportunity for growth and transcendence. Early in adulthood, our expectations about the future are two-fold: our happiness will rise, and our professional abilities will increase. Unfortunately, for the majority of us, happiness declines gradually throughout adulthood until its nadir in one's fifties. The result is an abrupt shock for many people in their fifties: low happiness and professional decline, neither of which is anticipated, and thus for which we have no good strategies. The typical reaction is to 'rage against the dying of the light.' That is, work harder and longer to get your groove back and stay abreast of young people. Unfortunately, that strategy doesn't work and is really only successful at causing anger and frustration. There must be a better way. There are several, and they promise to make age sixty happier than fifty (and seventy and eighty better still). But to understand these strategies, we need a deep dive into the world of psychology, brain science and economics. We need to visit a few gurus in the mountains of India. We need to understand what J. S. Bach did right and Charles Darwin did wrong. Most importantly, we need to be willing to change our whole approach to life and love. This book shows how, in detail - resulting in four specific commitments - Jump - Serve - Worship and Connect.

            Out of Office is a book for every office worker - from employees to managers - currently facing the decision about whether, and how, to return to the office. The past two years have shown us that there may be another path forward, one that doesn't involve hellish daily commutes a...nd the demands of jam-packed work schedules that no longer make sense. But how can we realise that future in a way that benefits workers and companies alike? Based on groundbreaking reporting and interviews with workers and managers around the world, Out of Office illuminates the key values and questions that should be driving this conversation- trust, fairness, flexibility, inclusive workplaces, equity, and work-life balance. Above all, they argue that companies need to listen to their employees - and that this will promote, rather than impede, productivity and profitability. As a society, we have talked for decades about flexible work arrangements; this book makes clear that we are at an inflection point where this is actually possible for many employees and their companies. Out of Office is about so much more than zoom meetings and hybrid schedules- it aims to reshape our entire relationship to the office. 'If you believe there's a better way to live than refreshing your work email until you close your eyes at night, you'll appreciate this deep dive into how workers relate to the office.' -Angela Haupt, Washington Post 'This book will challenge you to rethink what it takes to make remote work work - not just for companies, but for people. With lucid writing, provocative examples, and refreshing candour, Charlie Warzel and Anne Helen Petersen highlight what too many workplaces are doing wrong - and how we can start getting it right.' -Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife 'Out of Office isn't just a book about remote work. It's a book that helps us imagine a future where our lives - at the office and home - are happier, more pr
