Overview

Personal growth in and out of the workplace has long been hampered by the constant question “how?” In The Answer to How Is Yes, Peter Block teaches readers how to act on what they know and reclaim their freedom and capacity to create a world they want to live in. He shows how to reject tendencies toward passivity and blame in favor of choosing accountability and demanding a more compelling purpose from work and life. The book also emphasizes the need to shift the paradigm from the self-help/bootstrap/make-a-million craze toward something larger and more generous and, in the end, more satisfying.
