In My Job My Self, Gini plumbs a wide range of statistics, interviews with workers, surveys from employers and employees, and his own experiences and memories, to explore why we work, how our work affects us, and what we will become as a nation of workers. My Job, My Self speaks to every employed person who has yet to understand the costs and challenges of a lifetime of labor.


"He looks at it [work-related topics] all through his own humane yet practical lens…The result is packed with insights for workers and bosses alike…Gini covers a big topic from many different angles, comprehensively and well." -- American Way
