According to New York Times best-selling author Salzberg (Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation; A 28-Day Program), one of the best ways to become happier at work is to practice meditation. While we can't change the circumstances of our lives, she writes, we can change how we feel about them. Salzberg offers a series of five core meditations, such as letting go of thoughts and practicing loving kindness, and provides narratives and exercises in what she considers the eight pillars of happiness at work: balance, concentration, compassion, resilience, communication, integrity, meaning, and open awareness. Salzberg has walked the walk and is all too aware of the struggles of the workplace.
VERDICT Ideal for those open to meditation and helpful for those ready to question their own strategies and responses to problems.
