Life's Too Short
True Stories About Life at Work
by Foreword by Val McDermid
Price: $5.95

"A short, sharp shot of laughter and tears.

What does it feel like to drive a lorry that's out of control?  What really goes on in a school full of unruly children?  Could you travel all over the world for work?

Whether we love it or hate it, work has a huge impact on our lives and in recent times working life has totally changed.  So what is life really like at work today?  From builder to baker to social care worker, these writers let us know.  Some of their stories might surprise you.  Some will make you laugh and some might make you cry.  The one thing they all prove is that you can never be sure what your working day will bring."

A new advanced level reader containing ten short stories about experiences at work, with a foreword by Scottish author Val McDermid.
