Product description


"If you're thinking about really showing up for the tens of thousands of hours you'll spend working during your life, you'll want to read this book."--Shambhala Sun

"One of the best books ever written about practicing spirituality on the job."--Spirituality and Health

"Highly recommended."--Mandala

"Refreshingly practical and down to earth."--The Beacon

"A revelatory book that brilliantly applies Buddhist principles to the life of work and vice versa."--Warren Bennis, University Professor, University of Southern California, and author of On Becoming a Leader

"Michael Carroll does not just write about being awake at work; he has lived that awakening, thoroughly and inventively. His adaptation of Buddhist mindfulness to the complexities of modern employment is a singular and valuable accomplishment, giving us pithy exhortations and detailed instructions for being awake and aware in every workplace situation."--Lewis Richmond, author of Work as a Spiritual Practice

"An invaluable guide to surviving--and thriving--in today's demanding business environments. I've drawn on Michael's brilliant and wise advice for years. Now everyone can benefit from his wealth of insight and experience."--Deborah Dugan, president, Disney Publishing Worldwide

"A truly unique book. The wisdom that has been developed in two very different realms--that of business and spiritual practice--join together to create much richer insight and wisdom. Given the struggles of these times, these teachings are extremely important."--Margaret J. Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science
