#2 Delivering Happiness – Tony Hsieh

The book from Zappos’s CEO, Tony Hsieh, is an inspiring and motivating mind nutrition! The truly written words that come from his heart tie you to your armchair for an entire afternoon. He shares the most honest stories with all details from the and insights. Showing the dark side and the ups and downs as well as the power in people that always made the ups after the downs makes it an open, human friendly honest story from a man who had the experience.

It introduces a brilliant mind and the people around him tha helped him on the always adventurous path he walked on. He whole-heartedly writes about building corporate culture with core values and incredible customer service, with random kindness and a little weirdness as the say at Zappos.

Tony is a man who likes his people and takes care of the company’s overall well being & teaches you how to make the best out of it.

Definitely teaches and encourages you to take risks and face the failure.
