Do you consider business writing heartless at worst, and boring at best? August Turak will change your mind. The rather wildly successful Turak takes his lessons from the monks of the Mepkin Abbey and shows how he brought them to work in his business... Fascinating.
What I found especially gratifying were the peeks into the cycles of monastic life. Turak has a keen sense of what motivates and drives people and you see it in his observations here; planting, harvesting, meditation, meals, and also the personalities of the monks who lived there.
Turak narrates himself and does a wonderful job of conveying his interest in the subject and regard for the people he's written about.

This was my 2nd listen though I expect not my last. I read quite a few business books as well as spiritual books and this one manages to bring those two worlds together better than any other I have read.
A powerful business book on it's own right, Turak compels the listener with a central theme of service and selflessness as discovered through the monastic tradition. The discussion of the heroes journey and how organizational leaders can tap into the innate desire for transformation is particularly excellent.
