Book Reviews To Live, Learn and Work By


Families and Work Institute, (FWI) a nonprofit action tank providing research to live, learn and work by, has launched a book review series that includes video and blog reviews about work-life related books getting people talking and thinking. We go beyond the noise and let you know how popular books on the topic of work can, or can’t, impact your life.

We read them for you because you don’t have time to read everything.
