This thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal.

Do you have a job - or a vocation? A career, or a calling to a special destiny? In this thought-provoking program, Thomas Moore shares his vision of what we can do to restore fullness and depth to this dispirited dimension of our lives. Moore uncovers the sacred roots of work life, and shows how, even in this age of technology, it remains a direct path to discovering who we really are.

Any additional comments?

I feel so much better about our world now after completing this course. The knowledge that I gained from this lecture has replaced a lot of the fear with a strong understanding of the possibilities that we face now and in the future.

Also, the professor was a great speaker and made everything easy to understand for almost anyone. I liked this one so much that I just finished his other lecture on Why Economies Rise or Fall. If you choose that one you may not need this one; however, you will miss some great and fascinating details on china and India.
