Great book for re-focus on the job Sep 6, 2008
I read this book at a point where I was frustrated with my career after 17 years in my industry. This book helped me to refocus and encouraged me in my work. I found the book easy to read. There were questions and points for discussion for use in a class environment. For me it was a leisure read and it was really great. If you like this book, then I'd recommend sermons by Barbara Brown Taylor - another author who can helps me stay focused on what matters.
