‘Real Happiness at Work’ by Sharon Salzberg

Are you continually feeling annoyed by a co-worker or boss? “Real Happiness at Work: Meditations for Accomplishment, Achievement, and Peace” (Workman) is packed with suggestions about how to foster harmony in the workplace. Even if you have zero interest in meditating, you can pick up useful advice. Author Sharon Salzberg, a cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society, suggests that anyone who feels like lashing out would do well to take a breath, pause, and reconsider. She writes in plain language and populates every chapter with the success stories of ordinary people, such as a police officer, a CEO, and a software engineer.
