Work helps us live a good life. “The Hungry Ocean” told us about the reason, value and compensation of work. “The Devil Wears Prada” taught us dramatic changes would appear when you chose a job. “Something Borrowed” is a great story of finding what you really want. “The Perfect Mile” helps us set up a goal and be ourselves. The four stories help us better understand the philosophy of work.
