James Cusumano has led many lives. Implementing his success as an entertainer, scientist, corporate executive, and entrepreneur as a template, Cusumano shares his multifaceted guide to success, personal fulfillment, and balance. This easy-to-follow, autobiographical guidebook, Balance: The Business–Life Connection, instructs readers in methods which will lead not only to increased productivity, but to an improved overall quality of life. Cusumano shows his readers how to identify and unleash their passion and individual power in order to find purpose along their path. Stressing the importance of recognizing and utilizing the talents already there, Balance encourages business leaders to realize their goals through the personal and spiritual connections they have with their work.

From seasoned business leaders to those just beginning their careers, everyone can benefit from Balance. Balance lays out a plan for achieving goals in the social, professional, financial, health, and knowledge spheres of life. By integrating the goals in each aspect of one’s life, Cusumano illustrates the interconnectedness of one’s personal, spiritual, and business lives and the dependence of each sphere’s success on the success of the others. Without balance between them, the goals in each sphere cannot be achieved. Cusumano stresses that this must be balanced with a second, undeniable responsibility: a dedication to the sustainability of our world and its future. On a smaller scale Balance deals with relationships with family, friends, business protocol, and treatment of employees. But on a larger scale Cusumano tackles business’s impact on the community, the environment, and the world.
