As beloved talk-show host and best-selling author Dan Miller reveals, the only way to find true security is by following your calling and then finding or creating work that matches that calling and passion. No More Mondays' practical, inspirational advice speaks to people looking for guidance on how to launch a new career or business, those who want to stay in their current jobs and give the old 9-to-5 model a 21st-century makeover, and managers desperate to understand the way people want to work today.
For all of them, Dan Miller's message is loud and clear: If you're one of those people who dread going to work on Mondays, do something about it!

Love it, love it, love it. I continue to listen to it everyday- really. It is so inspiring and uplifting. I hightly recommend this Audiobook, it helps you to see things in a different light. Simply Wonderful. Great Job Dan Miller!
If you're looking for a how to quit your job and get rich, this isn't the book for you. This is a book about passions. It does provide more concrete ideas than what you may find in other works from the author, but it's not going to tell you to do A, B and C to make all your dreams come true. Miller also gives some fantastic strategic insights on new ways to approach problems. I listened to this over a few LONG car rides and really enjoyed it.
Great book to make you look at your vocation/work in a different light! Great job Dan miller! Only bad thing is as one other reviewer said music between chapters is too loud!
I originally thought this book was going to be about how to eliminate Mondays or the sense of Mondays but instead it is a fairly religious book sharing Bible stories and basically repeating itself over and over again to go find your calling and go after your values. I had to stop 1/2 way through because I couldn't take his preaching anymore. I have many audio book and this one is definately not recommended.
I have been a fan of Dan Miller's "48 Days" podcasts for some time. Dan specializes in not only finding your career, but most importantly, finding your true calling. As Dan say's, when you enjoy doing what you do, it isn't work. Many authors attempt to bring this subject into light, but they only skim the surface. Dan, on the other hand, delves deeply into it and leaves no stone unturned. If you are looking for your true calling in life and don't know where to turn, give this a listen. You will not be disappointed.
There is one downside. I have to agree with the audio production thing already pointed out. At the beginning and end of each chapter is a rather loud(too loud) musical interlude that ends with a very startling piano crash type sound. It almost makes you want to jump out of your skin at times.
This book is not as good as I expected it to be based on the good reviews others have given.
I think there is too much reference to God and the church. This may suit some people but I found this a bit much. Also much of the content I have heard many times in other audio books.
I finished listening to the book but it is not something I would listen to again.
Dan Miller is a master motivator and story teller! It was great to hear teh success stories and to hear a plan that will put life in perspective! I highly recommend this to anyone who may not be happy with their current situation- there is hope and it is within you to change the situation!
I really enjoyed this book; I found it to be very motivating even though I am not looking for a new job or career. Looking at my job as a part of my calling and not just a grind that I do to make ends meet has become really important to me.
Realizing that the only job security you have is your ability to find your next one is very important in the world we now live in. It is now very rare for anyone to have the same job or even vocation for 20 years or more much less retiring from a company with a meaningful pension, so it is up to us to fund our own retirement and provide financial security for our families. Working at something you love will make that a lot easier and increase your chance of success and happiness. This book may give you some ideas of how to accomplish that goal.
