This book is a humble contribution to the marketplace movement, to the marketplace ministry, and to their equivalents. This work has a place in executive education programs, since it presents inner realities involved in leadership, management, entrepreneurship, business ethics, values formation, and the integration of career and family. It can help people, even if it is not structured as a self-help book. It is simply a real story of real people and the real story of a period of an ordinary businessman's life, and of the notions and nuances in his mind and in his heart as he tries to recover from the pits, something that nobody in this life is exempted from. If you are a businessman, a business entrepreneur, a social entrepreneur, a writer, a parent, a spouse, a son, a daughter, a brother, a sister, an in-law, a grandson, a granddaughter, a teacher, a student, or somebody's friend, I hope you will find a connection with this book.
