Publisher's Summary

What would you be willing to do for the rest of your life? It's a question most of us consider only hypothetically - opting instead to "do what we have to do" to earn a living. But in the critically acclaimed best seller The Monk and the Riddle, entrepreneurial sage Randy Komisar asks us to answer it for real.

A Subtle and Elegant Lesson in Life

Amazing read! At first I was unimpressed, expecting the usual rapid fire of helpful life lesson inspirational factoids. But much like the anecdote at the start of the book, what seems like an arduous road to travel becomes itself an exciting adventure the further you go. Buried deep in the weaving tale of the author's life are lesson about living life fullest as well as surviving in a corporate world. Beautiful!

My absolutely only criticism is that the reading is a bit low. It was impossible to listen even atax volume in most places, and even with headphones I had to crank the volume. Nothing ten or twenty minutes ayong with audio levels can't fix.

A wonderful story, with a great meaning

It took me until the very end and a few days after of thinking back to truly appreceate this book. It is now foundational to me and will forever affect my life in some way.

Thank you.
