From Publishers Weekly
Work inhabits a major portion of our adult lives. The Tomses, co-founders of New Dimensions Radio, combine their experiences in business and communications with their spiritual philosophy to convey their idea that work is a service unto others, and true work is work that makes a contribution. Work may be seen as service, they argue, because work and life are connected and driven by spirit: "Work has become our spiritual practice and continually provides the opportunity to deepen and enrich our lives." The authors' idea of spirituality embraces both creativity?using the gifts and talents we each possess?and vision?dreaming and capturing a particular dream?as means of transcending the idea of work as money-making or goal-achievement. The Tomses generously sprinkle their own observations about the spirituality of work with quotations from the Dalai Lama, Thomas Moore, Joseph Campbell and others, and their book provides a perspective on the meaning and purpose of work.

"True Work" is as important as anything that Joseph Campbell has written. It comes from Michael and Justine Tom's own life experience and contemplation of that experience.
The book shows how to integrate work into one's fabric of life, because work is one of life's threads, but it is not the whole cloth. Again, it is a profound work.
