"Love Your 84,000 Hours at Work" details the lives of people who love their jobs and how they came to find them.---Something was missing from Andrew Harrison's good life.

'In the spirit of Jack Kerouac and Studs Terkel, Harrison hopped into his car to search for himself through the stories of others.' - WCPN, Cleveland NPR affiliate.
