    Inhaltsangabe

    From best-selling writer David Graeber, a powerful argument against the rise of meaningless, unfulfilling jobs and their consequences.

    Does your job make a meaningful contribution to the world? In the spring of 2013, David Graeber asked this question in a playful, provocative essay titled “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs”. It went viral. After a million online views in 17 different languages, people all over the world are still debating the answer. 

    There are millions of people - HR consultants, communication coordinators, telemarketing researchers, corporate lawyers - whose jobs are useless, and, tragically, they know it. These people are caught in bullshit jobs. Graeber explores one of society’s most vexing and deeply felt concerns, indicting among other villains a particular strain of finance capitalism that betrays ideals shared by thinkers ranging from Keynes to Lincoln. 

    Bullshit Jobs gives individuals, corporations, and societies permission to undergo a shift in values, placing creative and caring work at the center of our culture. This book is for everyone who wants to turn their vocation back into an avocation.

    IT Made me think....

    C. Ragland was good as always. What was best about the Book ? It was not the collection of BS Jobs (which was faszinating) , but the end of the book. Imagine a world without all these useless bullshit jobs. the book made me think about it, rather than giving a complete Picture. thanks for the impuls. (please excuse the grammer of my writing, I am not a native) Danke für den Denkanstoß.

    A refreshing study of why we even bother to work

    Every bit of the facts rundown in this book is, unfortunately, true. The book is a great read. What I'm not sure about is the idea that the universal basic income would make the world a substantially better place. If we didn’t have to work at all, the 80% of idiots would make the 20% of progress-loving people unbearable. It is to be feared that, once the Basic Universal Income sets in, the percentage of idiocy would surge to 99%, and I only say 99% instead of 100% because I am a notorious optimist. Nonetheless, I recommend everyone to read it and to have a hopefully meaningful discussion.

    Bullshitbook

    the author clearly does give a flying feather about how or why moredn capitalist society is structured and is simply facinated with his own bullshit. Funny, that he frames this bullshit as a gamechanger insight.

    Gute Ideen, bezweifle konkrete Zahlen

    Das Buch enthält einige gute Ansätze und wenn es Bullshit Jobs gibt dann sollte man sie streichen. Die insinuierte Anzahl und die Größe des Problems kann ich nicht nachvollziehen.

    Addictive

    After a while, I couldn't stop listening, being under the impression that this book would change my perception of people and things around me entirely. After happily finishing the book, I guess Graeber is a master of suggestive rhetoric ("a case could be made that..." seems to be his favorite phrase), but that his argument doesn't entirely hold up to reality. OK, the subtitle says "A Theory", anyway. So listen for yourself.

    Speaking of listening, I liked how Ragland performs the overall persuasive gesture of the text. Plus he reads the footnotes (and I haven't even noticed this prior to checking the written text). But he also does something downright outrageous for an audiobook produced in the year 2018: He genders voices of interviewees! This results in two types of voices, one testosterone-laden for men and a tender timbre for women (which doesn't apply to quotations of female authors). Hard to imagine how anyone interested in the phenomenon of bullshit jobs would approve of that. But maybe I am misjudging the target audience.

    Too long

    Interesting topic but it really didn't need to be that long. At some point I felt like I hear so.ikar examples again and again. I lijed the beginning but then I literally waited for the end.

    Very interesting book, very important ideas, disappointing reader

    I found Graeber’s Bullshit Jobs an inspiring and challenging read. I also feel like I learnt about some key concepts in anthropology and cultural studies.

    Sometimes the argumentation lacked rigour with unsatisfying claims made about empirically verifiable hypotheses.

    I think he has brought together various ideas in an interesting way that challenges how we can think about work, and I now feel inspired to read further around the problems he identifies.

    I found the reader was very weak, placing too strong and inappropriately placed emphases, confusing the meaning for the listener.

    Die Story ist schnell erzählt und damit schnell langweilig

    Die Story ist eigentlich in wenigen Minuten erzählt, viele Kapitel sind einfach nur noch redundant und langweilen schnell
