From the author of the best-selling Buddha Walks into a Bar . . ., wisdom for "Generation Next" on how to make your work meaningful, satisfying, and of benefit to others.

Does it ever seem that a lot of the people you work with are, well, jerks? This book is about how not to let work turn you into one of them. Apply the simple Buddhist teachings and practices Lodro Rinzler provides here to whatever you do for a living, and you'll not only avoid jerk-hood, but you'll be setting out on the path toward making your livelihood an expression of your inherent wisdom, honesty, and compassion. You'll discover practical ways to bring mindfulness into administrative support, cabinet-making, financial management, nursing, truck-driving, or latté-brewing. In the process, you'll discover genuine empathy for the folks you once found so difficult. You'll also learn leadership skills that apply compassion to management in a way that increases happiness along with efficiency.

This is career advice of the profoundest kind, geared toward today's twenty- and thirty-something workers and job-seekers whose employment outlook is radically different from that of a generation ago. As Lodro shows, even if the path of work shifts beneath your feet, it's possible to make your livelihood a source of satisfaction and of deep meaning.

Buddha Walks into the Office

Review:

"Rinzler offers spiritual guidance for young people who have forgotten something important in the midst of career advancement and professional networking: that it is not what they do that defines them, but rather who they are. With that focus, cultivation and enlightenment can be brought to any job and any experience."--Publishers Weekly

"This is a magnificent book that just happens to be truly fun to read. Accessible, urgent and life-changing."--Seth Godin, author of Linchpin
