Transforming Practices: Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life
by Steven Keeva

In  Transforming Practices, Keeva seeks to put the honor back into the practice of law by showing how it is possible to be both an effective attorney and a good person. He does this by introducing the reader to attorneys who have found a balance between their spiritual selves and their legal selves, who have transcended the stereotypical type-A personality by achieving a more centered, introspective sense of self.

This book gives numerous examples of how many lawyers have discovered new meaning in what they do, avoiding the burnout that so many lawyers face. This book reminds us that it is OK to be human, in fact, it is a distinct advantage because the practice becomes more flexible, creative and compassionate, serving clients more effectively. This is an important book for practicing lawyers.

The Game of Work
by Charles A. Coonradt 
3rd Edition (Sept. 1997)

There are three kinds of people in an organization: Those that know they are winning, those that know they are losing, and those who don't know the score. This thought-provoking book will help you concentrate on setting goals at all levels of the company or business so that each person can keep score and know how he or she is doing and what he or she needs to win at the job. The sports metaphor is useful in showing how measuring results has to be simple to be effective. This is a book on how to enjoy work as much as play, regardless of where you are in the organizational chart.
