"In this uncompromising bestseller, two veterans of public service and private business reveal how America's work ethic has been stripped of its true meaning. Readers are then given the critical steps necessary to halt America's declining work ethic through an infusion of unique programs, hard work, and a renewed sense of integrity. Colson founded the Board of Prison Fellowship Ministries, and Eckerd founded the Eckerd drugstore chain."--copied

What happened to the once strong work ethic in America? This book seeks to answer that question by looking at long term trends and assumptions of workers that has resulted in societal changes in this country.
Work has broader ramifications than one might initially think. We're told "For better or worse, our work defines us." They go on to make the argument successfully for this statement. Work has a "purposeful nature" they write and add that "meaningful work is a fundamental dimension of human existence, an expression of our very nature."
