Thoughts:
Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits Passion and Purpose by Tony Hsieh is a wonderful graphic adaptation of the book and certainly brings out the main points across. As with many good business books, this one also left me with ideas on how to implement what I learned at my job.

Tony is an entrepreneur by blood. He started his own earthworm farm at 9, moved on to newspaper routes and made custom buttons and more. As Tony discovered computers he became a tester for video games, a programmer and worked for Oracle while creating LinkExchange. Tony’s company was sold to Microsoft for $265 million.

Always looking for the next great opportunity, Tony started a venture capital company and got involved with Zappos.com. Along the way the author learned many life lessons, including his desire to be fulfilled. A desire, I must say, which is much easier to achieve with a pocket full of money!

Tony founded Zappos through his angel investing company, he poured a lot of his own money into the company and helped it become the multi-million dollar success story it is today – and remain happy in the process.
No small achievement.

Along the way Tony talks about the areas Zappos invested their time and money in (culture, employee training and customer services) as well as how to install core values in your employees and the “Top 10 ways to instill customer services into your company”.

The last few pages talk about happiness and company culture. While I really enjoyed this graphic adaptation I think I will buy the book if, for nothing else, but this last section.

    I have read Delivering Happiness and thought it made a lot of sense. The graphic version sounds like an easy and even more convincing read.
