Behind the experience and talents cataloged in your resume lies an intrinsic power that fuels your soul and your success: your genius.

Through dozens of compelling stories of people who have real­ized the transformative power of finding their genius-plus a wealth of practical exercises- Is Your Genius at Work? draws inspiring wisdom from ancient philosophies, spiritual traditions, modern sages, and the author's twenty years of research and study to help you define and give name to your genius, recognize your life's purpose, and discover how to bring your genius wholly alive through your life and work.
