Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

This easter holidays I finished reading this fantastic book from TonyHsieh about his life story and the story of the online store Zappos. Recommend to everyone who enjoys reading biographies and enjoys reading about tech in general.
Here are some quotes from the book.

“Money alone isn't enough to bring happiness . . . happiness [is] when you're actually truly ok with losing everything you have."
“Things are never as bad or as good as they seem.”
“I had decided to stop chasing the money, and start chasing the passion.”
“Envision, create, and believe in your own universe, and the universe will form around you.”
“We must never lose our sense of urgency in making improvements. We must never settle for “good enough,” because good is the enemy of great,”

Young Money: Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street's Post-Crash Recruits

Continuing with my challenge of reading at least 12 books this year. This book tells 8 stories of graduate students that enter the Wall Street world. Interesting read to know what is going on in the finance sector.
