Infusing the Spiritual into the Work Ethic

'If you thrust the knowledge when the person is unripe or not wanting it, he will never value it. You have to seek the right person for the knowledge.' Though this message comes toward the end of the book CORPORATE SEER, author Arun Purang has essentially summarized the particular essence of this book. This book is as user friendly as any book written but the reader must have the patience similar to that required to learn how to enter a meditative state

First and foremost I received this free copy from the author himself through the Goodreads Giveaways. The author, Arun Purang, personalized my copy and signed it. I really liked the personalization.

I realized right from the start that the book needed major editing help. From the Copyright page to the forward, to the end there were significant errors which made it hard to read. I started copy editing with a pencil and then there were too many errors that I just stopped and read it for what the s

It’s all about attitude and the way we see work. If we put very little effort in, we’ll get very little out. If we are looking for ways to get ahead, it shouldn’t surprise us when others do the same. On the other hand, if we love our work, our happiness and enthusiasm will spread. If we pursue excellence for the sake of doing a job right, we will see the difference.

Corporate Seer sets out four standards of work: physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. Each standard approaches work in

Through his initial publication, author Arun Purang has created an insightful and innovative framework to assess one’s own path towards spiritual discovery through work. Yet this book is much more than a dry treatise on business or management philosophies. Mr. Purang employs a narrative to introduce the reader to the “Wisdom of the Four Standards of Work.” His story and character development keep an individual engaged throughout the book, while also establishing a mechanism for the reader to ...more

As I won this on First Reads, I'd firstly like to thank the author for the chance to read and review this book.

I found the 4 standards to be interesting and helpful - giving a wonderful perspective about dealing with work and life in general. The storyline, as it was told, was interesting.

I did however find the book difficult to read, as the editing was not up to scratch. Words were omitted, the grammar was lacking and there really were a host of other errors throughout that it didn't flow for m

I'll be honest, I started to skim over parts of this book after a while.

I'll preface this by saying I won this in a Goodreads giveaway, and I realized once I received it that I was not its target audience. It's targeting businessmen (and women) who are interested in spiritual/mystical awakenings. Neither of those apply to me.

As well, I think one of the difficulties with reading the book is that the author is East Indian, and the book has not been well edited. Some of the writing is awkward, alo

This is best book I have read this year. I finished the book in two hours. It was simple read.
The Author talked about four - standards of work which is very relevant in modern corporate world.
Out of many things i liked about book was definition of world work.
W - Wonderful medium to find
O - Oppertunites to express love
R - Risks and Rewards
K - Knowledge about live.

It is a must read for anyone looking for deeper meaning of work.

I found the book to be very interesting and I believe that the ideas and theories presented as part of the core 'mantra' presented in the book hold the potential to transform the readers' relationship with his or her work. This is not a novel to be read lightly, but a book to stop, savour, and reflect on after every few pages. The greatest potential of the teachings in this book will only be felt if they are put to experiment and practiced in one's own life.

A new twist on Karma Yoga, or on work, depending where you come from. The story is a bit slow to start, but then suddenly it is in the heart of the subject. I knew about Karma yoga, so I am not sure how people who don't will follow.

Book is written in the form of the conversation between an american and indian. The Indian teaches the american the real meaning of Karma Yoga. A good read, simple and straightforward. A one sitting read.

Corporate Seer sets out four standards of work: physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. Each standard approaches work in a slightly different way and in turn creates a different working experience
