Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, &hellip by Tony Hsieh

Not your typical autobiography book. History of Zappos and some autobiography elements from Tony's life nicely woven into interesting story. And you get your share of "howto" in business culture and building business in general.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting approach, July 6 2012
New approach to an old theme: success. Chapters are just long enough and you don't have to read them in order. Sometimes I expect more of "why people fail" writing and get only a few paragraphs of it at the beginning of the chapter. After that there's a ton of "how to succeed" stuff related to that chapter's theme. That was little annoying to me from time to time, maybe beacuse I expected book to be more of why people fail and less of how to succeed.

Nevertheless, overall an interesting book, I have read it once and re-read some chapters again. Recommended reading
