Product description

Review

"Readers who accept poet and Fortune 500 consultant Whyte's invitation to enter into 'an imaginative conversation about life and work' are likely to be challenged as well as delighted by the beauty of his writing and the expansiveness of his views. Gracefully using the metaphor of a sea voyage to depict the journey through the world of work, Whyte views work not only as a means of support, but as a means for interacting with the world and developing self-expression and identity... An abundance of provocative ideas...thoughtful readers will wholeheartedly savor this book."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Crossing the Unknown Sea is like a grail that reconfers dignity to what has been demeaned by our preoccupation with monetary wealth."--Paul Hawken, author of The Ecology of Commerce

"Managers might do well to ditch wishy-washy motivational speakers and instead hire the fiery David Whyte to stir creativity and imagination in their employees."--USA Today

"Keep this beautiful book with you and you will discover, as I have, a still point amid our slightly mad world."--Peter Senge, author of the The Fifth Discipline and coauthor of Schools That Learn
