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

“This book is awesome. How Tony and Zappos grew to $1 billion in gross revenue in 10 years is just the beginning. From fundraising to finding happiness, from actual e-mails to checklists, it covers it all. Intensely personal and intensely practical.” —Tim Ferriss, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Workweek

“In DELIVERING HAPPINESS, Tony reveals the secret to his success at such a young age: leadership in culture and happiness.”— Lance Armstrong

The hip, iconoclastic CEO of Zappos shows how a different kind of corporate culture can make a huge difference in achieving remarkable results—by actually creating a company culture that values happiness—and then delivers on it.

* Pay brand-new employees $2,000 to quit
* Make customer service the responsibility of the entire company-not just a department
* Focus on company culture as the #1 priority
* Apply research from the science of happiness to running a business
* Help employees grow—both personally and professionally
* Seek to change the world

Sound crazy? It’s all standard operating procedure at Zappos, the online retailer that’s doing over $1 billion in gross merchandise sales annually. After debuting as the highest-ranking newcomer in Fortune magazine’s annual “Best Companies to Work For” list in 2009, Zappos was acquired by Amazon in a deal valued at over $1.2 billion on the day of closing.

In DELIVERING HAPPINESS, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh shares the different lessons he has learned in business and life. Fast-paced and down-to-earth, DELIVERING HAPPINESS shows how a very different kind of corporate culture is a powerful model for achieving success-and how by concentrating on the happiness of those around you, you can dramatically increase your own.
