Although I haven't finished it yet, this book has been a great source of inspiration. It lets me know that what I do is good and appreciated. As a civil engineer, I design mostly infrastructure. These are things that generally go unoticed after time (water towers, sewer mains, water mains, airport improvements). This book details how others before me have achieved peace knowing that they have contributed greatly to the improvement of the society. A good read.
