May 3, - Published on Amazon. Verified Purchase. I bought this book hoping it would help me see the practice of medicine as a vocation or a calling. The reviews mentioning the Christian perspective were what actually got me to buy the book. As a Roman Catholic physician I was looking forward to reading a book that would bring some perspective to the often difficult profession that has one of the highest rates of burn out.
Unfortunately, I was never able to get past page 35 because I couldn't take the anti-Catholic rhetoric any longer. It saddens me that the authors' bias ruined the book. I wish I could get my money back. December 4, - Published on Amazon. This is an excellent read and very informative.
I picked this up based on a friend's recommendation, but I had to write a review because I think the concepts are so powerful. These authors are clearly onto something when it comes to improving your life at work. They offer practical strategies, and as I read this book, I could think of specific people I work with who seem to be using these strategies to great success.

It's just that I never understood why before reading this book. The book doesn't shy away from the spiritual element of a word like "calling," and it gets into some interesting research that demonstrates how people who find and follow a call can be happier at work and outside of work as well , even if the job they have isn't perfect.
I think there's something in this book for everyone. I'm very happy in my job, but I still loved the book. I think it would be a particularly helpful book for someone who is thinking about a career change or shift, or even someone looking for fulfillment in retirement, because the book discusses ways to pursue a calling outside of work as well. I see this book as one that could gain traction in the business community as well, because satisfied workers are productive workers, and this book definitely provides a formula for understanding and achieving job satisfaction.
I recommend this book and look forward to more from these authors. August 24, - Published on Amazon. Well-researched, clear, theoretically and theologically-based while also offering pragmatism.
