Format: Paperback
This is a great book to have and the insights can easily be transferred to any aspect of one's life - not just specifically the workplace. It's simple to read, and can be done in consecutive order, or also just flip to a page or chapter of interest - each is usually brief and headed by an inspiring quote and reference. Highly recommended - good price.

Real Quality insights. March 28 2012
By JohnG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ever been leant a book from a friend, or business associate? As you are reading through said self help book (dieting, finance, business... ) you start to notice that the pages just seemed filled with filler to put enough pages to print to justify a book? Maybe you feel like you can only take away 1 single message out of the entire text. For example, I burned through a book on hypnotic writing to assist in some copywriting skills, and came away from the book with the only quality piece of advice being the 4 p's of sales (yes, that was the core). The rest was filled with direct COPIES of blog entries by the author, letters to the author from people who swore what he said worked, and even him trying to tell me his magic method worked. I already had the book, what was he trying to sell? Anyways, this review is NOT about that book. Have you felt like this before when reading a self help book? Felt it a worthless waste of time? Ok, then maybe YOU are of the right mindset for Being Buddha at Work.

I approach most self help books the same way as the above, and was slightly sceptical when ordering, but the format and references from friends made me jump on it.

Being Buddha at Work is the opposite of the cheesy self help book. It is deeper, more introspective, smarter and more poignant that what you might even consider some peoples all time FAVOURITE self help books, such as Rich Dad poor Dad, 7 Habits, etc. It does this by limiting the words on the page to only value, and filling every page with meaningful points. Besides making every page WORTH your time, it is also skilfully broken up by subject and issue, making it easy to read front to back in multiple sittings, or skip to through the table of contents. It also doesn't make an attempt to convert you to any religion, but instead only imparts intriguing philosophy and draws direct parallels to most of the problems you deal with today.

If you have been looking for a great book to put issues into perspective, and attempt new problem solving and thought techniques, both at work and in life, I highly recommend this book.

Sharpening The Saw Jan. 23 2012
By Coach Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I spent the weekend 'sharpening the saw' on all the gems of wisdom contained in this book. What I discovered is that these 108 ancient truths apply not only to the workplace, but in every other aspect of life. The chapters are written in clear and concise terms - I really appreciated the bottom line messages that site specific examples of meaningful, memorable and actionable items. I highly recommend this for people who are seriously seeking solid principles that can guide your steps towards your goals!

Making it my daily practice Feb. 3 2012
By Leslie A. Yerkes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have come to recognize that my success and happiness in my professional life is not just influenced by my technical competency and experience but is most activated by my ability to navigate the stress, constant change and challenges with grace, mindfulness and awareness. 'Being Buddha at Work' is the perfect book to guide my daily reflection to set my head and heart in the right place to both give and receive in such a way to stay grounded and contributing. There is something of great meaning to be found on each page. Simple and yet deep the lessons of 'Being Buddha at Work' will be my daily practice for 2012!

Useful and insightful March 3 2012
By Michael P. Maslanka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am an employment lawyer and represent employers. I wish I could share the deep and effective knowledge in this book with all clients. How do you handle sexual harassment? Not just by citing to the law but the reason for the law(to allow all to realize their full potential which benefits the individual and the company). How should feedback be accepted? "If you are grateful, you learn from everyone." Their wise counsel:be on the lookout for all feedback, not just the structured kind. The universe will reward you. There is an excellent discussion on how to be a mentor: do not give advice to show off, ask if your true motive is to to teach, and do not presume that all wish to hear your wisdom. There is lots more. A book to be read and re-read.

Goes beyond the workplace Aug. 29 2013
By Carolyn Dargevics - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book. I like the questions, quotes, and easy-to-understand answers that can be applied to all life events and situations. For instance, I had to make the heartbreaking decision to euthanize my 18-year-old cat because she went blind due to a stroke. The chapter that spoke to me stated the Buddha-nature decisions are difficult. I knew in my heart that I had to make the decision for her, not for me. I'm going to purchase "What Would Buddha Do?" for more direct answers for life situations and also because I really enjoyed Franz's writing, but I definitely will be rereading this book so the information stays with me.
