The Grind Culture Detox: Heal Yourself from the Poisonous Intersection of Racism, Capitalism, and the Need to Produce

by Heather Archer Author

No one's worth can be measured by how productive they are in our capitalist society. But in our 'grind culture' we are always being told that unless we work all the time, we aren't living up to our potential, or are somehow less than. In this timely history of work in America, author Heather Archer delves into the roots of our current obsession with work, identifying the thread connecting today's grind culture to chattel slavery (stolen labor) and manifest destiny (stolen land). Archer offers the reader tools to separate their sense of self-worth from their productivity, prompting an inner revolution in pursuit of prompting a revolution in our work culture. A must read for anyone burnt out on work.
