Publisher's Summary

There will come a time when you must decide to lead the life someone else has chosen for you¿or the life you want. According to legend, when a young boy asked the great Renaissance artist Michelangelo why he was working so hard hitting the block of marble that would eventually become his greatest sculpture, David, the artist replied, "Young man, there is an angel inside this rock, and I am setting him free." In The Angel Inside, the renowned consultant and career coach Chris Widener uses Michelangelo's words to explore the hidden potential that exists within us all. In this unforgettable parable, Tom Cook, a disillusioned American businessman, has traveled to Italy looking for direction in his life. In Florence, the last city on his tour, Tom meets a mysterious old man who opens his eyes to the art and life of Michelangelo and reveals what the artist's work can teach him and all of us about the power of following your passion. Whether you're looking for a way to reinvigorate your career or searching for the courage to begin a new one, The Angel Inside is a must-read if you want to find true meaning in your life and work.


What the Critics Say

"The Angel Inside is truly one of the most inspiring, encouraging, motivational books I have ever read. Once I got started, I found it impossible to stop....And I say this as a man who has never read fiction; I've always said that when I get all of the truth, then I'll start reading fiction. It was a wonderful thrill to read a work of fiction that contains an enormous amount of truth and encouragement." (Zig Ziglar)
