The BookViral Review:

A refreshingly frank and clear look at the complexities of the business world through the eyes of the Buddhist faith, ‘The Buddhist CEO’ by Thane Lawrie tracks the life and career of Hamish as he negotiates the weighty responsibilities as the CEO of a non-profit making organisation. 

Keeping his beliefs and principles firmly at the forefront of his professional practice, Lawrie uses a descriptive narrative to outline Hamish’s most challenging and complex business relationships and how his integrity to Buddhist principles of ‘do no harm’  enable him to cope and react morally and reasonably with a usually cutthroat business position.

Lawrie Introduces us to the darker side of human nature whilst outlining how it is possible to maintain dignity and rectitude in business practice. Key to this novel is also the overwhelming and incredible sense of peace that the creed and culture of Buddhism bring to both mind and body. 

Lawrie’s description of the Buddhist retreats generates a real sense of serenity and gentle and tender support, reminding all to take time for solace from the rat race of modern society, and to maintain both decency and dignity, staying true to these despite adversity, which in turn leads to shared and respectful working partnerships. His descriptive imagery allows the reader to feel a sense of relief, peace and security rarely experienced in everyday life.

Interestingly Hamish’s successful CEO support network demonstrates how regardless of position or religion a supportive network builds both shared and personal resilience.

Finally, we move with Hamish through some tough physical and mental challenges which prompt him to re-evaluate his life and enliven his desire to move away from modern society towards a more peaceful existence.

With wise and telling proverbs and prose to introduce each chapter, Thane Lawrie has created a novel upon which to ponder, providing much food for thought regarding our own individual values and chosen path.
