In his book, Aaron Edelheit illustrates that taking the Sabbath is good for your health, mental well-being and family life, and also beneficial for business, career, creativity, and problem-solving ability. The goal of The Hard Break is to change work culture through personal stories and in-depth research showing that working/being “connected” 24 hours a day, seven days a week is harmful in many ways. The Hard Break features interviews with several prominent leaders in business, politics, and faith based organizations including Senator Joseph Lieberman, venture capitalist Brad Feld, Gary Sabin, a devout Mormon, who has built and sold three different real estate companies for billion dollar transactions and movie producer Devon Franklin, a Seventh Day Adventist. The book includes profiles of successful businesses such as Chick-fil‑A (including an interview with a top executive), which is closed every Sunday and Boston Consulting Group, which has a practice of predictable time off.
