If work was more like this...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

When you spend so much time at work, it makes sense to be able to enjoy what you do and who you do with. There are so many good ideas in her, anyone should be able to get their workplace to buy into at least one of them. It's actually a leadership style that helps both sides of the table.
