The fun of work - really?

"I haven't been visiting schools and drowsing during headteachers' PowerPoint presentations for nothing this past quarter century", writes Will Self.

"I know full-well that the purpose of both British education and British employment is the same: to keep us busy and purposive from cradle to grave".

Will Self explores how the worlds of work and education have become seamlessly merged with each other.
