Book Review: Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh

0 comment

I had the pleasure of receiving a copy of “Delivering Happiness” and was glad I was able to receive such a great, open look into Zappos. It’s part auto-biography, part Zappos culture but Tony keeps the pace moving pretty well through the book. “Delivering Happiness” is about Zappos CEO founder Tony Hsiehs (“shay”) life as a serial entrepreneur and how he helped Zappos become a culture-based, and consequently, successful company.

What’s really cool is that Tony offers complete transparency into Zappos and into his entrepreneur mindset. He lays out his take on business strategies and likens them to successful poker strategies (so it’s also a good book if you’re learning poker!). Tony offers not only tips on how Zappos culture can work in your business, he also offers free (i think theyre free, it wasn’t mentioned) copies of the actual Zappos Culture book if you just email him (!

I really enjoyed this book as a motivational tool and also as a way to learn where the focus should be when Metropolis gets bigger. It’s a useful book for both now and the future. You can also check out more details at

Bottom Line:

Would I? Yes, definitely recommend

Time to read: 2-3 subway rides
