This carefully researched, heartfully written, and delightfully readable book tells one of the most interesting true stories of our time: the fascinating and sometimes messy coming together of the wisdom world and the corporate world.
Chade-Meng Tan, Jolly Good Fellow of Google, and bestselling author of 'Search Inside Yourself'

An intriguing, timely, and enjoyable new book [and] a fascinating account of the increasing adoption of these ancient oriental disciplines by western businesses as means of improving corporate efficiency, reducing employee stress, and, directly or indirectly, boosting the bottom line. Gelles has both an initiate's appreciation of how meditation works, and a journalist's objectivity and ability to tell a story.
