Zen and the Art of Making a Living: A Practical Guide to Creative Career Design
By Laurence G. Boldt
This is one of those rare books that puts things together from so many different areas and does it so well that it might take reading dozen of other books to get the job done otherwise. The book is long, but its breadth lends itself to being used like a reference book, bit by bit when things come up. Its own description as “the most innovative, unconventional, and profoundly practical career guide since What Color Is Your Parachute” is an understatement. Combining practical and varied information on finding the right job with philosophical guidance, historical perspective and cultural insight, this book provides knowledge and inspiration to propel you toward a life of fulfillment through — and beyond – work.
