Lessons on leadership and meaning from the pros
This book brilliantly applies the thoughts of the world’s greatest thinkers to the practical questions of modern day life, leadership, and work. The reader walks the fairway with Bud Graland as he is introduced to the likes of Socrates, Nietzsche, Freud, and Frankl. On each hole a new “Enlightened Dead” thinker is returned to the living and guides Bud through his quest to find meaning in everyday life and the world of work. Malloy & Lang engage and inspire deeper thinking in a manner as simple as taking a walk and as challenging as the game of golf. Who knows, it might even improve your game.
Uniqueness of the book
Books on philosophy abound as do books on leadership, and golf. The Enlightened Dead takes the bold step and combines these three worlds into a unique, thoughtful, and practical application of philosophy to leadership and meaningful work. This book provides the reader with an interesting and readable take on philosophy and what we do everyday - work. The writing of Aristotle, Nietzsche, and Frankl, to name a few, are interpreted by Malloy & Lang in lively discussion between shots. The Enlightened Dead is an important book for any 21st Century leader to read in order to better understand themselves and what they do.
