For the busy business executive, the never-ceasing demands associated with work, and life, can place a relentless push and pull on our time and attention. Our world is moving so fast, we are apt to miss much of what is happening ''right now.'' Kristin S. Kaufman, in her book Is This Seat Taken? offers another perspective. Within these pages, Kaufman offers a collection of highly personal stories that illustrate how a wealth of wisdom may come from the most unusual and unlikely sources. The resiliency and clarity found from typically unheard voices speak of universal truths that may often be lost in the shuffle, yet are no less vital to a well-aligned life. Is This Seat Taken? offers important lessons that force the typical executive, and indeed all of us, to ponder what it means to truly be present in the now, what we can learn from these incidental encounters, and how these random encounters can become a compass, pointing us on our own road to alignment, fulfillment, and success.
