Answering “Life’s Great Question” with Tom Rath

Tom Rath is an author and researcher who has spent the past two decades studying how work can improve human health and well-being. His 10 books have sold more than 10 million copies and made hundreds of appearances on global bestseller lists.

Tom has two books slated for publication in 2020, Life’s Great Question: Discover How You Best Contribute to the World and It’s Not About You: A Brief Guide to a Meaningful Life, published in partnership with Amazon Original Stories.


Life is not about what you get out of it . . . it’s about what you put back in. Yet our current means for summarizing life’s work, from resumes to salaries, are devoid of what matters most. Perhaps this explains why, on average, work is killing people when it should be making them healthier.

Simply put, we need a whole new way to think about and describe the contributions we make through our life’s work. Most people agree that life is not about focusing on self-oriented or monetary ambitions. It is about what you create that improves lives. It is about investing in the development of other people. And it is about participating in efforts that will continue to grow when you are gone.

Life’s Greatest Question will show you how to make your work and life into something much more meaningful that serves the world while improving your well-being. Far more than just a book, each copy includes a unique code that gives you access to complete an online inventory and build a personalized portfolio that details where you can make your greatest contributions to the world.

This deeply practical book and online program will show you how finding your greatest contributions are far more effective than following talent or passion alone. Filled with novel stories, research, and tools, Life’s Greatest Question will change the way you think about how your work and life can serve one another well into the future.
