Schechter tackles head-on one of the constantly ignored aspects of the work setting - the self. Typically, managers in the workplace regard focus on the self as the enemy, the opposite of "getting down to work." The author does an exhaustive job of illustrating how work comes alive when the self - mind, body, spirit - is understood. Knowing the self provides avenues for transforming work into a source of pleasure, satisfaction, effectiveness and, ultimately, spirituality. Schechter has made a solid contribution to a vital issue

Rekindling the Spirit in Work is an inspirational and excellent resource for maintaining our connection to the authentic self and our inherent creative fire within the work environment.

The modern world is redefining the relationship between one's work in the economy and one's lifework as fulfillment of what it means to be a human being on Planet Earth in these times. Howard Schechter's fine book Rekindling the Spirit in Work is one of the better expositions of this quest. He exudes in his writing a quiet spirituality, while at the same time being utterly practical.
