I was so excited to get this book from Amazon, especially after reading the other reviews. Then, I flipped through the TOC, and skimmed through the chapters and got even more excited. But, once I read about a quarter of the way in, I started to realize that the author wasn't actually ever really saying anything.

The last book I read was "4 hour work week", and the book before that was "Elements of the Real in Man" by A.H. Almaas. So, I thought this would be a perfect fit for me in integrating my spiritual path with my career path. Time, Space, Knowledge was on my list of must-read, but I decided to start my exploration of Tulku with this book because of it's practical nature and with hope that it might apply to my recent career challenges.

It is a great topic, and the author seems to know what he's talking about, but in the end, the book doesn't really teach much of anything. The exercises are way too vague to actually practice, and sometimes they don't really seem like exercises at all. The bulk of the content is basically him talking about how awesome it will be when you start loving your work. You will feel more joy, and more love with others, and more happiness, and more contentment, and more flow in your life... on and on... he talks about all the great ways that your life will be so incredible once you master it. But, he never tells you how to actually do that.

I could break down the teachings of this book into a 1 page essay if I wanted to. Basically, the whole teaching is pretty much: enjoy your work, be mindful while you work, don't indulge in bad work habits, care about your work and really involve yourself in it fully. That's it - I just gave you everything you need.

I would've given it only 2 stars, and I probably wouldn't have finished reading it, except I thought that actually the author deserves credit for bringing his tibetan spiritual wisdom to the mundane of work. A very important topic, and the main points (although way too drawn out with hype) are really pretty solid.

I still plan to check out Time Space Knowledge, when I get a chance. But, I can't recommend this book, unless you just want a quick read (only 127 pages).
I began my involvement with buddhist spiritual traditions at about 1985.....This book is a great help in dealing with the unique challenges posed by the workplace, which everyone faces..I have been using this book for at least 27+ years...in particular, I recommend the chapter working from the gut level.
we will both be happy and rich simultaneously. This book is the pioneer and forerunner of this concept. Later Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche would come out with "Mastering Successful Work". A sequel to this book. "Skillful Means" is his bestselling work to date. Why? Because, to be frank, most people want to be happy and just don't have the time to study and meditate as well. And with familys, the issue is a mute one. There is no time. But if we can convert our working time and taking care of the kids, transform this time, into gaining insight spiritually, then, well, WOW! I have read this book 11 times (yes, eleven!). More than any other book that I have ever read. You will be given a series of lessons on work. When we have lots to do, we tense up. We get the adrenaline flowing. Which is extremely hard on both the body and mind. In fact, you may ask yourself, "Why am I murdering myself like this? Year after year?" Well, the author doesn't want to disillusion you of your beliefs. But the more you relax, the faster you can work. And the better your work is. You will learn about the three mainstays of Skillful Means ("upaya" in Tibetan): awareness, concentration, and and energy or ACE in "Mastering Successful Work". This book is your primer and you will be advised to study it before you attack the next book. According to Tarthang Tulku, the mind is like the lens in a camera. These three factors need to be adjusted according to the work that you are doing. If you are trying to put a thread through a needle, your "C" (concentration) must increase incredibly while your awareness and energy must decline. If someone is talking to you at the same time, your "awareness" must increase thus making sure that you can not put the thread though the eye of the needle! Try it! They don't teach us any of this in school or college. Which is a real misery. Buy these two volumes and learn how to "focus" your camera properly. This can be your meditation. Good Luck.
This is one of Tarthang Tulku's most accessible and practical books. Tulku's greatest gift is his ability to clearly communicate techniques for meditation and mindful living that came from his Tibetan Buddhist experience. Tulku conveys fascinating ideas in simple terms which can be readily applied in anyone's life, regardless of spiritual or religious orientation -- or even what kind of work you do!
Most of Tulku's books contain wonderful exercises to practice the concepts he describes, and this book is no exception. For example, the very first chapter describing Inner Freedom offers three ways to practice improving clarity, concentration, and mindfulness. The patterns of success that Tulku discusses in great detail in this book have to do with self awareness, coping with change, and sharing with others. Long before anyone heard the term "emotional intelligence", Tulku was practicing and teaching it.
Just reading Tulku's writing improves my facilities for meditation and mindfulness, by focusing my attention on the process of thought itself. It's always a joy for me to read anything written by this master of consciousness!
It teaches you to work happily in a clear goal with logical reasoning and self-awareness.
Step-by-step, I find it benefits my current job situation in a stress free terms--one of the means of converting your energy to good use.

This book constitutes useful means and ideas to support each other.
