The business and psychology professor known for his groundbreaking books on "flow" approaches the challenges of business with the same humanity. His writing spans broad swaths of social and philosophical history, placing his ideas on solid intellectual ground. Work in large organizations, he says, has become something apart from the joyful engagement with tasks and community that we are designed to enjoy. The audio's timely message could be a manifesto for all corporate citizens who are discouraged but not without hope for today's stifling organizations. Nelson Runger's sensibilities are as good as ever, but his slow pacing of each syllable and excruciatingly long pauses between sentences distract.
