Nice Work

Jana WendtJana Wendt
Winner, Best Designed General Illustrated Book, APA Book Design Awards, 2011
Jana Wendt, one of Australia's most experienced journalists, sets out to discover what drives us in the work we do.
"We spend forty hours, on average, each week in a place that is not our home, in the company of strangers. Odd then, that the details of what we do all that time often remain unknown, even to those closest to us."
Jana Wendt, one of Australia's most experienced journalists, sets out to discover what drives us in the work we do. She follows a compelling group of people, from a boxer set for a comeback to a maverick priest, and a CEO whose company is mired in scandal to a forensic anthropologist investigating murder. Wendt witnesses the successes and frustrations, the body-blows and moments of joy experienced by people who consider what they do as the great passion of their lives.
The result is a wonderfully observed and entertaining portrait of modern work.
