I've read hundreds of Buddhist books, and one of the characteristics I appreciate most is the lack of judgmental, right/wrong attitudes and language. This book is the exception. It is written with a parental tone and is filled with "shoulds".
As I listened, I envisioned a frustrated HR manager who wanted staff to behave more appropriately and framed a book with that underlying purpose using Buddhism to mask that intention. The recommendations that to be successful you should to come to work before your boss, leave after your boss, and never surf the web are examples that were presented in that tone. I also found that there was much more of a typical self-help orientation than a spiritual orientation.
If you are a very new employee and need advice about appropriate behavior at work, I can imagine someone might recommend this book to you. If your challenges with work are more sophisticated than that, keep looking.

Finally a practical application of spirituality incorporated into our work life. I feel that this book would work for a variety of spiritual views to provide the work, life, spirit balance we all need to successfully move forward in our careers.
In today's fast paced world it is refreshing to read the wisdom of slowing down and being present in the moment. A must for all of us suffering work related stress
Firstly liked the structure of the book , easy to listen. Most of the material are well known in the world. However there were a couple of nice hints on dealing with stress at work. Also has good points on organising youself at work.
