ABOUT THIS BOOK


Comments from Reviewers

"Frank Sanitate takes a refreshing and thought-provoking look at the role of money in our society, economy and financial markets that will challenge the reader's assumptions about many of the financial and economic issues that we face."
- Craig M. Fullen


"You will be challenged
- to learn a lot of new information
- to question what you believe
- to accept what you previously did not know or misunderstood
- to examine some of your beliefs and positions, and
- to explore the validity of their opposites.
This book will challenge you, and it will be worth it."
- Bill Dubois, Jr.
Business consultant and financial adviser


"Your writing has uplifted both my left and right brains, and has forced me to begin formulating a couple of interesting book ideas for myself. What your writing has done for me can not be underestimated."
- Donald Moore


"I wanted you to know that engaging in this discussion has been very good for me. I wish I had $10,000 in my bank account to pay you the value of your book to me thus far!"
- Reviewer


Easy to Read

Don't Go To Work Unless It's Fun! State-Of-The-Heart Time Management

by Frank Sanitate

(For a full table of contents, click here)

Santa Barbara Press - 1994

Why is it we don't see any "Thank God It's Monday" bumper stickers?

There is no reason why you can't look forward to going to work every day. Overwork, time pressure and other stresses are choices, not necessities. Looking into your heart means having the courage to always make your work a source of satisfaction. In this book, based on his experience of developing and teaching Time Management and other personal development seminars since 1977, Frank Sanitate explores:

  • Why an attitude of scarcity causes us to overwork
  • How organizations become more productive when individuals consciously pursue their own satisfaction
  • How to overcome barriers that prevent work from being
  • What satisfaction means and how to achieve it

Beyond Organized Religion: An Ex-Monk Revisits Life's Basic Questions

by Frank Sanitate

(For a full table of contents, click here)

Santa Barbara Press - 2002

This book is a no-nonsense, rational look at religion, god and us.

Frank Sanitate bridges the gap between his former life as a monk and his present life as an entrepreneur, family man, seminar leader and advocate for the world's poor and hungry.

He says: "After 30 years I wanted to re-think the concepts of my Christian faith. The process took me on a long and fruitful journey, which I am still on. Popular spiritual books of the day are of no help to me. In this book I take a no-nonsense, rational look at religion, god and us. I try to avoid the pious language of old spiritual writing as well as the lyrical, metaphorical language of current spiritual writing. May my journey assist you in yours!"

"For those who are disillusioned with the current structure and hierarchy of religious institutions, yet have a deep yearning and faith in their hearts, this book will be a friend and a guide."

- Barbara Marx Hubbard, author, President of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution



"In this book, Frank Sanitate uses playful inquiry, his personal experience, and thoughtful analysis to inspire people to examine their own spiritual beliefs and theology. By guiding the reader through an exploration of many important ideas and questions, this book could help any thoughtful person become more spiritually mature and aware."

-Jonathan Robinson, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Awakening Your Spirituality and Life's Big Questions.
