FIR Book Review - Delivering Happiness: June 7, 2010

imageDelivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose is the new book by Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos.com. A combination of memoir, essays, business lessons, inspiration and a bit of zen, the book recounts the road taken by Zappos.com from unlikely online shoe outlet to billion-dollar business and Amazon.com acquisition target.

The book focuses on Hsieh’s unwavering commitment to a culture of service supported by a commitment to openness. Combined with charm and wit, this quick and easy read is inspirational if not a guide to embracing the same practices for your own business.

In this FIR Book Review, FIR co-host Shel Holtz offers an overview of the book and its strengths as one man’s journey to cultural enlightenment.
