Review: David Whyte, published poet and corporate consultant (bet you’ve not heard that combo before!) uses both modern and classic poetry to show how anyone can craft a happier work experience. Unlike any other business book I’m aware of, the author gives equal—if not superior—weight to the importance of your feelings about work.

As someone who understands the workplace—warts and all—the author is able to help us see things differently through the poems he references and the way he crafts his arguments. He’s realistic yet retains his optimism about our ability to transform our workplaces.
