*Financial Times Business Book of the Month*The full-time job is disappearing. Today more workers than ever are going freelance – driving for Uber or cycling for Deliveroo, developing software or consulting for investment banks.

What happens when job security, holidays and benefits become a thing of the past? How can freelancers find meaningful, well-paid employment? And could the gig economy really change the world of work for ever?Praise for Gigged‘Essential reading for anyone who is interested in understanding the future of our economy and society.’ Ha-Joon Chang, author of 23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism‘Sarah Kessler’s wonderful book offers unprecedented illumination of the promise, and the peril, of the gig economy.’ Martin Ford, author of The Rise of the Robots‘If you want to know how work is changing and how you too must change to keep up, you must read this book.’ Dan Lyons, author of Disrupted‘Kessler’s timely book explores the personal, corporate and societal stories behind a massive tech-driven shift away from permanent office-based employment.’ Books of the Month, Financial Times‘Deep reporting and graceful storytelling . . .
