Tony Hsieh’s Delivering Happiness . . .


Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose by Tony Hsieh | LibraryThing

Hsieh, T., & Hachette Audio (Firm). (2010). Delivering happiness: A path to profits, passion, and purpose. New York: Hachette Audio. 9781607882305

One of my coworkers recommended Delivering Happiness last year. However, this book resided on my TBR (to be read) list for nearly six months. After I entered the  2011 Non-Fiction Challenge, I requested the audiobook via HCPL.

CEO Tony Hsieh tells how lifelong pursuit of happiness lead to a career he enjoys. Nowadays, Hsieh works at the sensational Zappos.com – the online shoe store. Growing up, Tony’s Taiwanese parents pushed him to excel at academics and music. This push landed him at Harvard and then, sound employment. Still, Tony felt little to no joy.  

His pursuit brought him to create Link Exchange. Then, Tony and others collaborated to create Zappos.com. While they hit some serious bumps along the way, Zappos.com developed into a success. The company aims to provide their customers with the best experience possible. Also, the staff remains happy.

This is a great book in which the subject/author is completely identifiable and relatable. Tony presents his life’s journey with a sunny outlook but isn’t delusional. I could mention several moments within the book but I refuse to spoil.
