How do we find a sense of purpose and completion in our lives? For some it is very intentional, for some, by accident. Purpose can be found within the private, public, government, military, and   nonprofit sectors. But universally, people living with a sense of purpose have one thing in common: they live their lives for others. Wes Moore explores the quest for purpose through nine lives and identifies how individuals can find a sense of completion in unique and unforgettable ways. By looking at the unsung heroes who live among us, we can better understand how each of us has the power to change the world.

Acclaimed author Wes Moore is a veteran, Rhodes Scholar and the founder of BridgeEDU. His most recent book, The Work, is a collection of, “…incredibly valuable lessons about what it means to create lives that matter…(it is) a way of exploring the meaning of success in a volatile, difficult, and seemingly anchorless world.”
