For The Week magazine, he named his six favorite books about work.
One title on the list:
Working by Studs Terkel (New Press, $17).Read about the other books on Pink's list.
My mother brought this book home from the library when I was 10, and I snatched it to read Terkel’s interview with a baseball player. To my surprise, I ended up staying for the bus drivers, strip miners, and schoolteachers. Hearing real grown-ups talk about what they did for a living was, for me, far more exciting than phantom tollbooths or Mrs. Frankweiler’s mixed-up files.
