Publisher's Summary

There will come a time when you must decide to lead the life someone else has chosen for you┬┐or the life you want. According to legend, when a young boy asked the great Renaissance artist Michelangelo why he was working so hard hitting the block of marble that would eventually become his greatest sculpture, David, the artist replied, "Young man, there is an angel inside this rock, and I am setting him free." In The Angel Inside, the renowned consultant and career coach Chris Widener uses Michelangelo's words to explore the hidden potential that exists within us all.
In this unforgettable parable, Tom Cook, a disillusioned American businessman, has traveled to Italy looking for direction in his life. In Florence, the last city on his tour, Tom meets a mysterious old man who opens his eyes to the art and life of Michelangelo and reveals what the artist's work can teach him and all of us about the power of following your passion.
Whether you're looking for a way to reinvigorate your career or searching for the courage to begin a new one, The Angel Inside is a must-read if you want to find true meaning in your life and work.


What the Critics Say

"The Angel Inside is truly one of the most inspiring, encouraging, motivational books I have ever read. Once I got started, I found it impossible to stop....And I say this as a man who has never read fiction; I've always said that when I get all of the truth, then I'll start reading fiction. It was a wonderful thrill to read a work of fiction that contains an enormous amount of truth and encouragement." (Zig Ziglar)

Very special little book!

This little book has a very simple but BIG message inside. As a past resident of Florence this book takes me back to a city where beauty and history meet fate and create another masterpiece. Reminds me a bit of The Little Prince, and too always keep the child alive inside.

A gem

If you feel stuck and don't know what to do with your life, this is the story for you. Short, sweet and breathtakingly simple. This will rekindle the spark of a fire inside you if that is what you're looking for. If you feel drawn to listen to it, do it! If only all self help/advice book were as clear. The narration is very rushed at the beginning but you soon get taken away with the story.
