Books On Meaningful Work

Claude and Gail.Claude and his wife Gail Terry Grimes have long been thought leaders in the movement to bring back purpose and values to the workplace as demonstrated in their writing, including their books:

Cover from Mindfulness and Meaningful Work.Mindfulness & Meaningful Work: Explorations in Right Livelihood (Parallax Press, 1994), through which we helped introduce the idea of "right livelihood" to the English-speaking world.

Cover from Running a One-Person BusinessRunning a One Person Business (Ten Speed Press, Second Edition, 1994), in which we were among the first to call for a values-based "business-as-lifestyle" approach to entrepreneurship.

Cover from In the Company of Others.In the Company of Others: Making Community in the Modern World (Targer/Putnam, 1993) where we were early champions of the practices of "circles of intimacy" and grassroots marketing that have come to be known as "degrees of separation," "social networking," and "social marketing." Please visit an example of one of our social networks at, The Briarpatch and read about its long, fascinating history at Briarpatch.Net.
