Editorial Reviews

Review

“This wise guide offers hope that employees can find meaning in even the most mundane jobs, learn to start over, and have a positive impact, however small. Among the many books that apply Buddhism to everyday life, this is a standout.”

Whether you meditate regularly or not (I don't). Whether you hate your job or feel pretty okay about it (the latter for me), this book will change your life for the better in such simple and beautiful ways, it almost feels like magic. Salzberg's voice is knowledgeable and comforting, and her advice is creative and thoroughly doable. Regarding a particular work exchange, I went from dark and angry to open and calm with a simple "stealth meditation." There are more gifts in here than under a thousand Christmas trees!

Format: Paperback
Reading Real Happiness at Work was refreshing, down-to-earth, and inspiring with a simple, yet profound message of bringing loving kindness, compassion, and equanimity into our places of work. It is a guide to bringing Mindfulness Meditation practice, into daily living and into whatever our chosen profession might be. This is not a self-help book prompting the reader to beat themselves up, change who they are, and adhere to an old-school "head down helmet on" perspective on the workplace. Instead Sharon teaches the reader to develop a meditation practice that cultivates loving kindness for ourselves, so we can in turn bring this energy, and ease, into work. Throughout, there are real life examples of bringing this practice into everyday, interpersonal issues at work with practical advice on how to handle them from a place of kindness and compassion. They are situations we've all been through, and I love how tangible the exercises and insights are.

Sharon Salzberg's meditation teachings have guided me gently and expertly over the years, helping me to navigate work, life, relationships - and all their inherent difficulties and joys - by simply returning to my breath. Her books make meditation practice an accessible part of everyday life for anyone willing to give it a go. And that is a great gift to us all.

This book offers excellent insight into seeing why we're stressed at work and how to reduce that. It's full of anecdotes from people who work in a variety of fields -- tech startups to corporate jobs to waitresses -- who've used these techniques to find greater happiness and fulfillment in their jobs. Salzberg talks to workers and experts and offers an overall progra for looking at your work life to see where you can make changes and then doing it.

This book is great. Anything by Sharon Salzberg is well written and insightful. I have other books that she has written and they really work in real life. In other words, the advice and practice ideas she has are realistic and doable.

I bought this as audio CDs and I love it. I use it in my car to and from work. I have been listening to it over and over. It hasn't changed my life exactly (yet, maybe). But I do feel like I can be more watchful, aware and in charge of my own reactions. In the face of a difficult situation I feel less stuck, because again, there is more awareness that everything changes. It has been helping at home too by making me more engaged in the present, rather than half there, always thinking about problems at work.

Having read Real Happiness, I wondered whether this would be a simple rewrite with a few new twists. To the contrary, it is chock full of practical, applicable tips to the workplace! Her stories reflect the depth of her insights and her exercises so spot-on. Imagine these practices taking over the workplace. Check out the Stealth meditations! Essential and useful! Thanks, Sharon, for a "handful of happiness!"

I'm an "old-fashioned reader" so I love the texture and color. Easy to keep in a purse/backpack and access as needed!

This book was recommended in a meditation class I took recently. I checked it out of the library first and read it before deciding to purchase it. The book is very helpful to my efforts to reduce stress at work. I was delighted to find it on Amazon.
