Annotation Modern cultures worship of how-to pragmatism has turned us into instruments of efficiency and commercebut were doing more and more about things that mean less and less. We constantly ask how? and still struggle to find purpose and act on what matters. Instead of acting on what we know to be of importance, we wait for bosses to change, we seek the latest fad, we invest in one more degree. Asking how keeps us safeinstead of being led by our hearts into uncharted territory, we keep our heads down and stick to the rules. But we are gaining the world and losing our souls. Peter Block puts the how-to craze in perspective and presents a guide to the difficult and life-granting journey of bringing what we know is of personal value into an indifferent or even hostile corporate and cultural landscape. He raises our awareness of the trade-offs weve made in the name of practicality and expediency, and offers hope for a way of life in which were motivated not by what works, but by the things that truly matter in lifeidealism, intimacy, depth and engagement.
