This is a neat combination of the practical and the human-centered. I am reluctant to use the word "spiritual" because that could imply a certain woo-woo flavor to the book. Rather, it's a terrific no-frills collection of business how-to's and straightforward guidance in managing oneself. It acknowledges the truth that I am the only one who can control myself and if I don't take care of myself I will be no good at work. There are great tips on managing stress, organizing, stretching, and even suggestions for the "coffee break" (how about fruit instead of coffee? What a concept!). And don't even call this "soft" skills. The authors deal with the hard stuff: Resolving conflict at work, delegating, goal setting and prioritizing, making presentations - the works. The book speaks to a wide audience of managers, employees, the self-employed - even students would benefit from it.

I found the checklists and self-evaluations relevant and engaging. The tools are presented in easy-to-follow formats. None of that complicated, uber-branded, theoretical stuff. The book is laid out such that I can go to the section of interest and gain a lot without having to read the whole book (good news since it's over 600 pages). Many useful websites are referenced. I am also quite intrigued by the blending of the thirteen authors' philosophies and tools. None of the seven books is attributed to any one author and those known to me pop through, throughout the book. This is the best all-in-one I've seen in a long time and is a wonderful addition to my library.

This book is your own stop shop for improving your professional environment. There are so many useful and practical tips packed in here the only thing you have to do is devote the time to read it. Whether you are wanting to communicate your messages with clarity or run a successful meeting, your step by step tools are all here. I've been working for ten years so I don't need a big picture book that generalizes, I love that there are concrete suggestions for real life situations I face in my job. Pick up this book and keep it in a desk drawer to pull out whenever you need!
