A real gem,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: True Work: Doing What You Love and Loving What You Do (Paperback)
This book was a surprise. I tend to like books of this sort, and have read quite a few of them. By the title and brief description, I thought it might be a sort of middle-of-the-pack choice, the purchase of which was spurred by my respect for the authors (perhaps for interviewing Krishnamurti...). In any case, I have found wisdom, sanity, insight and inspiration on virtually every page. These authors and this book really have something extra to contribute, compared to other "find meaning in your work and life" works. It is spiritual and practical at the same time, rooted in an expanded perception of reality and traditional wisdom, and doesn't fall into the "just wish for pie in the sky and it will be yours" trap. It will make you feel good, but not so good that you forget your own responsibility in making things work. Lots of meaning packed into not so many words. This is my go-to book for help along the path of struggle that some times in life can be, the best book of its kind I have found. Doesn't emphasize one religious or philosophical viewpoint. Very much relevant to living. At least this is how I found it, and I hope others do the same.
