Annie Auerbach – Flex – Book of the Month
Our January book of the month is “FLEX: Reinventing Work for a Smart Happier Life” by Annie Auerbach
ABOUT THE BOOK
The recent coronavirus outbreak has proven what Annie Auerbach has long championed: working 9-5 in an office doesn’t work for most of us. It’s time to change the rules.
Flex is about looking at routines (like the nine to five) and social norms and bending and re-shaping them. Anne looks at how you can be efficient and productive when you’re allowed the freedom of flexibility–to meet deadlines working during the hours and in the places we choose. The world is changing for working women, but until the recent pandemic, companies turned a blind eye. Now, it’s time to make this change routine.
Annie Auerbach reiterates the importance of leaving the office cubicle behind and explores the realities many women experience working from home and the changes to their daily lives, including the trickle-down effects, from emotional labour to balancing childcare and education with work, to even biohacking the female body’s unique rhythms.
A beguiling exploration of how flexibility can contribute to creativity, purpose, and happiness.’ Justine Roberts, founder of Mumsnet
