Reviews - What do customers think about Waiting for the Mountain to Move: Reflections on Work and Life?

A Great Read  Jan 10, 2007
'Waiting For The Mountain To Move' is full of interesting and thought provoking. It is written in an easy to read format.

Jill Weeks

Edxcellent Book  Jan 8, 2002
One of the easier to read books by Handy. Contains many interesting ideas presented in a easy to read and understand manner. Excellent.
 
Stop & ponder about some of the thoughts in the book!  Jul 3, 2001
An excellent book to make you stop and think about the realities of work and life. Prof. Handy has put some very valuable truths in the short essays in the book. Some of the essays touch on spiritual issues and I endorse the truths he mentions! The essays are short and you could read them at the start of a long commute and ponder over the thoughts during the journey. Or are we do too busy to do that even? For those you have read Prof. Handy's other books, don't miss this one!
 
The Greatest Living "Social Philosopher"  Aug 2, 1999
I can't say enough about Charles Handy's many books, and this little gem is absolutely thrilling. Comprised of 65 stories of about 500 words each, Handy's eloquent style and a non-proselytized collection of Christian anecdotes make each story a beautiful experience. Core values with a deep, profound essence of faith. I hope more Americans become familiar with his tremendous work.
