Sinopsis:

How many of us have raced through life--meeting to meeting, bumper to bumper, dinner to dinner, skating to swimming--chasing after goals that always seem just beyond our reach? Then, one day, the monotony is somehow shattered and a profound reality of our life is revealed: We are filled with an aching sense of emptiness. We start asking ourselves the really big and scary life questions. What is my purpose? Why can't I find joy in my relationships any longer? Why does my employer care only about the money I generate and not about me? What has happened to my soul?

Ian Archer was just such a person, and this is a fictional account of his struggle from emptiness through understanding to wholeness. With the gentle prodding of a few colourfully-drawn secondary characters and the unexpected sanctuary he finds in a small, unassuming suburban coffee house, this likeable though dispirited business executive's personal and workplace quandaries are gradually unravelled, acknowledged and confronted. In searching for a prescription for freedom from the false promises of life, however, Ian discovers that he must be prepared to lose much but that the risks are ultimately worth it. If you, like Ian, are looking for a place where the seeds of creativity, peace and personal growth are planted and the answers to life's fundamental questions are offered up one cup at a time, why don't you sit back, relax, and join him on a journey to The Soul Cafe.

From the Publisher:

Publishing is a business of risks.

As publishers we take risks trying to understand the public's changing appetite for literature. We assume financial risks in printing and distributing books. And we face further risks in putting enormous marketing resources behind each new title. These risks are even greater when we are dealing with a new author who is relatively unknown to the public. It therefore would have been easy for us as publishers to have closed the door on David McLean when he presented his manuscript, The Soul Cafe.

But this was not the case.

When our editorial team read the manuscript we felt the book awoke within us our 'spiritual sensibilities'. We found ourselves questioning those things that we had long believed to be of value to us, and ultimately dismissing many of them as mere distractions produced by a materialistic world. Meeting Mr. McLean, we understood the passion behind the message.

In The Soul Cafe, McLean has challenged each of us to live our authentic selves. He has poked and prodded at our souls to awaken the voice within us to find a new way, a better way.

Its message reverberates through our work lives and our personal lives. It is a message for our time.
