The Passion Principle: Self-Expressive Career Decisions and the Reproduction of Occupational Inequality Erin A. Cech, University of Michigan.

"Follow your passion" is a popular mantra for career decision-making in the United States.  The proposed book is the first scholarly treatment of this ubiquitous cultural narrative, which I call the "passion principle." Drawing on a robust combination of qualitative, quantitative, and experimental data, The Passion Principle grounds this cultural schema in tensions between US capitalism and cultural norms of self-expression, describes its pervasiveness among the college educated and beyond, and explains why passion is such a seductive basis for career decisions.
