"In this fascinating (and often hilarious) account, Tony explains how he turns his beliefs into actions that really do deliver happiness."―Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
"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
"Tony Hsieh is a wise guy. Sincerely. He's one of the wisest and most thoughtful business leaders of the modern age. This insightful book isn't just an enjoyable read. It's a wonderful instruction manual for how 21st century companies create value and happiness at the same time."―Chip Conley, Fanound and CEO of Joie de Vivre and Author of PEAK: HOw Great COmpanies Get Their Mojo from Maslow
"This book could start a revolution!"―Marshall Goldsmith, author of MOJO: How to Get It, How to Keep It, How to Get It Back If You Lose It
"This book illustrates so many of Zappos' core values: it's open and honest, passionate and humble, fun and a little weird. Even if you don't care about business, technology, or shoes, you'll be drawn in by this American tale of how hard work, laziness, talent and failure blend together to create an extraordinary life."―Jonathon Haidt, author of THE HAPPINESS HYPOTHESIS: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom
"Tony Hsieh is the shining star of a new way of working. DELIVERING HAPPINESS is a book that tells an extraordinary business story -- building a $1 billion online business selling shoes in less than a decade -- but also an extraordinary human story. Tony is one of those entrepreneurs who is both fearless and endlessly imaginative about pursuing his dreams."―Tony Schwartz, Author of THE WAY WE'RE WORKING ISN'T WORKING
"DELIVERING HAPPINESS is a glimpse into the mind of one of the most remarkable business leaders of our time. Like its author, the book is authentic, oddly original, doesn't take itself too seriously--yet delivers a potent message. This book needs to be read by anyone who takes the happiness of other people seriously. "―Dave Logan, professor at the Marshall School of Business/USC' and coauthor of TRIBAL LEADERSHIP AND THE THREE LAWS OF PERFORMANCE
"An uplifting tale of entrepereneurial success, personal growth, and redemption."―Publishers Weekly
"The only book I've read that makes stunningly clear why companies succeed and sustain or fade. Tony Hsieh's profoundly simple answer: create a compelling set of core values and beliefs which every member of the work force understands and embodies, a culture that they are willing to live and die for and which makes Zappos the supreme example of how culture can work it's miracles."―Warren Dennis, Distinguished Professor of Business --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。
ただし、そういった「もろ刃の剣」的な要素があっても完読できるGuy Kawasaki(Art of the start等）もあるので、
日本人と同じアジア系（台湾系米国人 or 台湾人?)が米国で成功するのをみて「日本人も頑張らないと！」と気合をいれるには良い本。
Tony Hsiehの経営は、常識に囚われない、かなり型破りな方法をとっています。企業文化をとても大切にし、従業員にはその企業文化を体現し、そのことを通じて自己成長することまで求めています。'Zappos'の企業文化を形作るものとして１０個の'core values'を定めているのですが、なかなか興味深いです。

2.Embrace and Drive Change
3.Create Fun and A Little Weirdness
4.Be Adventurous, Creative, and Open-Minded
5.Pursue Growth and Learning
6.Build Open and Honest Relationships With Communication
A must read to understand the corporate philosophy of Zappos, the company's core values from the CEO's viewpoint, and to know the exciting processes in how Tony Hsieh innovated the business model and established the company.
