“Powerful and moving . . . Wes Moore’s story and the stories of those who have inspired him, from family members to entrepreneurs, provide a model for how we can each weave together valuable lessons from all different types of people to forge an individual path to triumph. I’ve known and deeply admired Wes for a long time. Reading The Work, I better understand why.”—Chelsea Clinton
“Wes Moore proves once again that he is one of the most effective storytellers and leaders of his generation. His gripping personal story, set against the dramatic events of the past decade, goes straight to the heart of an ancient question that is as relevant as ever: not just how to live a good life, but how to make that life matter. Above all, this book teaches us how to make our journey about more than mere surviving or even succeeding; it teaches us how to truly come alive.”—Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive
“How we define success for ourselves is one of life’s essential questions. Wes Moore shows us the way—by sharing his incredible journey and the inspiring stories of others who make the world a better place through the choices they’ve made about how they want to live. We come away from this important book with a new understanding of what it truly means to succeed in life.”—Suze Orman
“Wes Moore puts a mirror up to himself and shares the reflection with stunning candor. A truly moving picture of personal growth, and one that will make you consider your own path, struggles, and successes in a new way, The Work is a must-read.”—General Stanley McChrystal, former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan
“As a Rhodes scholar who fought in Afghanistan and later became a social entrepreneur, Wes Moore is a shining light of his generation—and one who captivates audiences. But he’s also humble, inquisitive, and constantly searching, which makes his story accessible, relevant, and illuminating to all of us. The Work will inspire everyone who seeks greater meaning and impact in their life.”—Charles Best, founder, DonorsChoose.org
“An intriguing follow-up to his bestselling The Other Wes Moore . . . Moore makes a convincing case that work has the most value if it’s built on a foundation of service, selflessness, courage, and risk-taking.”—Publishers Weekly
“A beautifully philosophical look at the expectation that work should bring meaning to our lives.”—Booklist
“The Work will resonate with people seeking their own purpose.”—BookPage

review Thanks Netgalley for a free book to read and review.
One mans journey through life and the wisdom that comes with. I think many things shape our life and mold us, these are the authors thoughts and life lessons. Heart felt book, and amazing read. Making our life have a purpose is a luxury some of us don't have. Everyday we go to work unfulfilled, but the author has a simple message. Our life is defined by what we make of it. Overall entertainment is five stars. I really enjoyed this look into his life, and the view of his time in Afghanistan.
