Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author and internationally known lecturer Thomas Moore finds people everywhere he goes who express unhappiness with their work lives and ask, "Why am I doing what I'm doing?" In A Life at Work, Moore takes listeners through the transformative process of discovering their deepest purpose in life.

In exploring the strong desire in all of us to feel fulfilled by our work, Moore offers no charts or questionnaires but rather a personal, contemplative guide to traversing obstacles such as inflated egos, despair, and fear that prevent us from finding purpose in our careers. He also shares the struggles of great thinkers and artists who grappled with uncertainty before finding their calling. For those who feel dissatisfied and question the path they've chosen, this poignant, practical work will help them discover new answers.

What the Critics Say

"The book's governing metaphor, alchemy, is often apt; Moore notes that both alchemy and finding a life's work require patience through a long refining process, and both are about the process, not just the end result." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Wish I had it when I was in the thick of things!"

    I find audiobooks the best way to enjoy a classic like A Life at Work because of my increasingly age-and-computer-dimmed eyesight. I wish that I had had this book when I was in the thick of things--I think it might have helped, if I could have relaxed enough to take it all in! Even now, it makes me think about the work and career choices I made and how they might have been different. The pressure of the need for money and pressures from society and family make it difficult for many people to choose work that is good for them. I didn't know myself very well at all when I was young, and I don't now, so this is a book that provokes thought and self-examination. I am still going through it, but I wanted to say something about my impressions midway through it. This book is a marker on my journey of self-exploration and I am glad I bought it and hope it will help you think a bit more about who you are, which is really a life-long process of investigation...

    "Thomas Moore speaks to the heart..."

    I can not think of any writer that speaks to me more than Thomas Moore. Thomas Moore is a must for the spiritual life.
