Publishers Description Starting from the premise that we can no longer afford to live in a disenchanted world, Moore shows that a profound, enchanted engagement with life is not a childish thing to be put away with adulthood, but a necessity for one's personal and collective survival.
With his lens focused on specific aspects of daily life such as clothing, food, furniture, architecture, ecology, language, and politics, Moore describes the renaissance these can undergo when there is a genuine engagement with beauty, craft, nature, and art in both private and public life.
Millions of readers who found comfort and substance in Moore's previous bestsellers will discover in this book ways to restore the heart and soul of work, home, and creative endeavors through a radical, fresh return to ancient ways of living the soulful life.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life?
One of the greats from Thomas Moore. Aug 15, 2007
This is a good book. Many useful ideas can be found in it. Moore is a master of Religious Studies thinking and he writes from a wise, mature space. Dr. Moore has a wonderful sense of history and how we can learn from it. I really enjoyed it and would reccomend it for illuminating reading.
Thomas Moore's Writing is Somewhat Shapeless in this book Nov 18, 2004
I like Thomas Moore's work, but find him difficult and sometimes impossible to follow. He rambles about things that are not connected to his subject. He has much to say but doesn't always say it succinctly. He floats from idea to idea without any real practical application for daily life, at least for this average Jane. This is definetly not one of Moore's better works.
DESCUBRIR LO CONOCIDO Jun 22, 2002
En una sociedad donde la pérdida de la fantasía está matando el espíritu del hombre, surge un libro que se atreve a hablar del alma en la naturaleza y en la cultura, y de la recuperación del asombro en nuestra vida diaria. El encantamiento es un poder del alma, una condición que nos permite conectarnos amorosa e íntimamente con el mundo que habitamos y con la gente que compone nuestra familia y nuestra comunidad. El alma humana tiene una necesidad absoluta e inexorable de encantamiento. Thomas Moore nos invita, a través de estas páginas, a explorar nuestra vida cotidiana -en el trabajo, la naturaleza, los negocios, el hogar- y redescubrir todo lo que ella tiene de sagrado y maravilloso. (Ed. Sudamericana)
A Gentle-No Promises Prescription for the Ills of this Life Jul 30, 2001
In this book, Moore builds on the material expressed in his earlier books, Care of the Soul and Soul-Mates, by considering the essentials of art, culture and society. A thought-provoking and re-energising read, without overt self-disclosure, false pretensions or weak, misguided self-illusions. Moore skillfully weaves his own special web of spiritual significance that stretches beyond our culture itself: by going straight to the centre of all human experience. An intellectually modest, yet soulfully rigorous book that is still highly capable of having literary and philosophical relevance to even the simplest of considerations. It's also a great interpretation of much of our long-forgotten human thought and endeavours from our past, present and the future, as well as allows you to realistically think about your own, unique cherished experiences yet to come.
Bringing the Magic Back In Jul 2, 2000
Moore addresses a very important question: How can we bring back magic into our lives? We are used to living in a rational, practical society, argues the author, with the result that we have neither time, nor ability to stop, think, and savor the strangeness and beauty of things. We have over-rationalized our existence to the point where spirituality suffers. Some things, the authors counsels are, well... not very practical. Can we really afford to keep old and dilapidated buildings because they can enchant us when we intentionally romanticize them? But the utility of Moore's book lies in learning how to accept what is and endow it with spirit, magic, and meaning. Even if we must grow up, we need not give up the romantic spirit that makes life fascinating.
