Starting from the premise that we can no longer afford to live in a disenchanted world, Moore shows that a profound, enchanted engagement with life is not a childish thing to be put away with adulthood, but a necessity for one's personal and collective survival.

With his lens focused on specific aspects of daily life such as clothing, food, furniture, architecture, ecology, language, and politics, Moore describes the renaissance these can undergo when there is a genuine engagement with beauty, craft, nature, and art in both private and public life.

Millions of readers who found comfort and substance in Moore's previous bestsellers will discover in this book ways to restore the heart and soul of work, home, and creative endeavors through a radical, fresh return to ancient ways of living the soulful life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this book! The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life is a seminal book for me. Reading it is pure pleasure. Thomas Moore casts new light on so many things that are puzzling aspects of our existance - agression, books and story telling, myths, beauty, sex, violence, and so on. Reflecting on Thomas Moore's views on so many aspects of daily life has broadened my understanding of our world.

Editorial Reviews

"Moore turns from internal spirituality and developing relationships to the natural wonder of everyday life--in trees, food, home, garden, art, furniture, stories, sex, business, politics, and ritual. To live without feeling magic or enchantment in external things, he believes, is to tumble Iinto a long-term 'loss of soul' in modern life.""-- San Francisco Chronicle""[A] profound yet practical sequel to Moore's massive bestsellet "Care of the Soul" . . . [T]his important book will dare many to believe that life is full of enchantment.""-- Publishers Weekly "(starred reviews)[A] worthy sequel to "Care of the Soul" and "Soul Mates."""-- New Age Journal"
