Delivering Happiness: A Path To Profits, Passion And Purpose is a book that gives its readers not only a business model that will lead their company on a profitable path, but also instills the lesson that happiness should be the basis of every business decision and life decision.


Summary Of The Book


Tony Hsieh founded and headed the online shoe and clothing site Zappos.com. In 2009, it was acquired by Amazon, a deal that allowed Tony Hsieh to make around $214 million. In 2010, he came out with his book, Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion and Purpose.


This book is a chronicle of Tony Hsieh’s entrepreneurial career. It notes how his business philosophy led to most of his business ventures becoming enormously successful. The book is divided into three sections: Profits, Profits and Passion, and Profits, Passion and Purpose.


The book highlights how Zappos.com attained the heights of success. Tony Hsieh lets the reader know about the mistakes that he made during his entrepreneurial career and how these can be avoided with the right approach.

 

The book highlights the importance of attaining the right balance between profits and happiness in both business as well as personal life. Hsieh states that the way to reach this balance is by ensuring that the brand is not just enduring but has the power to win over the loyalty of both customers and employees. Tony Hsieh emphasises that the aim should be to develop a business that helps in defining inspiration and happiness.


The book hit the No. 1 slot on the New York Times bestseller list and remained there for 27 consecutive weeks. It was profiled in leading publications like The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal. It remained for nine weeks on the USA bestseller list and was listed among Amazon’s Top 10 books for two months.


Delivering Happiness:A Path to Profits, Passion and Purpose was publicised by the author in an extremely innovative manner. He gave away free copies of the book to bloggers in exchange for a review. He also partnered with the Livestrong foundation and used the book to raise money for cancer care.

::: This Book really does bring out 'WoW' in you! Just scroll up & click BUY NOW :::

This is the 1st choice on book I made without any recommendation from anybody & it turned out WoW! & awesome.
Before reading this book I was under the great belief that there is nothing called "Business Ethics" in Business, but the ideologies of Tony actually changed my entire mindset!
And yes! business can be so transparent & so pure creating WoW culture, delivering not just products but Happiness through Surprises !

The book is so marvelously penned down, you wouldn't want to let go & the way the situations are hilariously explained makes it so exceptional. It actually showcases the culture of Zappos & the way the people have 'Fun at Work' ..

A must read for an individual aspiring to be an Entrepreneur & for an individual aiming for greater purpose in life. ..

An absolute must read!!!

I loved each and every page of this book. Overall, I can confidently say that this book made me a better human being.

If you are an entrepreneur or looking at building an organization, there is no way you can miss this book. It talks about the level of passion which goes behind building a company and what it takes. One one hand its inspirational and on the other hand its very practical and will give you loads of ideas which you can actually look at implementing in your organization, to make it a better place.

Highly Recommended!! :-)

Cheers,
Abhishek
