Inspiring a new generation of readers.

Most of us remember a book that had a big effect on us when we were growing up. Perhaps we found it at home, or maybe a teacher introduced us to a great story at school.

‘The Evening Standard’ has published an extract from Julia Hobsbawm’s new book, ‘Working Assumptions’.

'Culture constantly innovates, and it tells us a story we are familiar with, again and again: Work.

The Evening Standard has run an extract adapted from her latest book 'Working Assumptions: What We Thought We Knew About Work Before Covid and Generative AI.'
