The Hungry Spirit, which is a philosophical treatise on business, grew out of a personal realisation by Handy that, over the course of his life, he had placed too much signficance on job titles and and career success. Conversely, he felt he had not paid enough attention to the importance of family, friends and becoming a more complete person, rather than simply an economic actor in the theatre of business. Handy urges us as individuals, companies and organsations to take responsibility for shaping our lives by finding a purpose and applying it in the world.
