"One of our most important and provocative thinkers..."--Cory Doctorow
"A brilliant, deeply original political thinker..."--Rebecca Solnit
"Graeber is an American anthropologist with a winning combination of talents: he's a startlingly original to convey complicated ideas with wit and clarity."--The Telegraph (UK)
"A master of opening up thought and stimulating debate."--Slate
"Graeber wants us to unshackle ourselves from the limits imposed by bureaucracy, precisely so we can actually get down to openly and creatively arguing about our collective future."--

"A thought-provoking examination of our working lives."--Financial Times
"Buoyed by a sense of recognition, the reader happily follows Graeber in his fun attempts to categorize bulls--- jobs into Goons, Flunkies, Box Tickers, Duct Tapers, and Taskmasters, which inevitably bleed together into Complex Multiform Bulls--- Jobs. It's funny, albeit painful, that we've gotten work so wrong and spend so much time at it."
"Clever and charismatic."
The New Yorker
"A hilarious and lively book that calls for a cultural shift in what we value."--The New York Post
