On the Spirit of Service: It's your business

This is an excellent book that discusses the link between the spirit and profit. In my new book, Wingtips with Spurs, I discuss the connection between spirituality (not always religion) and the business arena and how all of things are connected. That is even at the physical level, vis. physics and quantum mechanics. Strange stuff but it proves how little we know. But then again, we do know, don't we.
