About the Book

The tools of business are dynamic-capital, people, markets and ideas-all are living entities in a constant state of flux. To take these tools-to work with them and reorganize them in new and different ways to produce a positive effect in your life and your organization-is the essence of the creative process. How to get there? This work will provide a working map for the journey toward your own potential.

"A lucid gateway to Joseph Campbell's monomyth of the hero's journey, particularly as it can be applied to one's career. Ginger Grant is an excellent interpreter of this invaluable but sometimes rather difficult body of work. I recommend her highly."

-William Gibson, author of Pattern Recognition

"A most remarkable technique born of a most remarkable vision! This book grounds the world of business management and corporate organization in a mythological psychology. It demonstrates practically a way to give creativity and imagination to the real life of the workplace. A unique and important contribution to the field!"

-David L. Miller, PhD.,

Watson Ledden Professor Emeritus, Syracuse University

"Ginger Grant's creative reimagining of the work place promises any who will consider her mythic approach to "doing business" a more flexible and humane corridor out of the stilted and calcified set of rules and formats that govern its behavior. Her leading impulse, that the corporate ethos will change dramatically only when it understands and accepts its own functioning mythology, promises to reanimate the place where we spend the best energies of our lives."
