In Thich Nhat Hanh's latest teachings on how to use applied Buddhism in daily life, he looks at how we deal with workplace scenarios, handle home and family responsibilities, and endure traffic jams and other challenges of modern life.

Full of life-coaching advice, tips for dealing with workplace scenarios, finding happiness, and positive psychology, Work suggests new mindful models of leadership and encourages us to carefully examine our everyday choices, so we can contribute to a work environment free from stress and tension, regardless of the circumstances. "Practical, wise and deeply compassionate, Work offers us a path for discovering the joy and inspiration that lies at the very heart of our household, livelihood and daily routines." --Michael Carroll, author of Awake at Work and The Mindful Leader "Work is a practical handbook for those who seek sanity and serenity at work.

His latest gift is a call to return to the moment at work and throughout the day. Work gives us an opening into the happiness available in our every moment.
