I am a student at University of Baltimore enrolled in a survey Entrepreneurship course and Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh was a recommended reading.
Delivering Happiness is a good book to read
and was very interesting to say the least. Tony Hseih wrote his book in laymanís terms. He had a story to tell and did embellish anything about his life. I actually like the book because of that and I enjoyed reading about his success from such a young age. Tony started off by telling us about his earlier childhood starting a button business, then college years and the jobs thereafter; and adulthood when starting his own business. There was true conviction with this young man and he believed he would own a business no matter what it took or how long. There were trials and tribulations before getting it right!
Moreover, I did not like how he discussed personal family business. I believe some things can be kept private without the cost of fame and money. The public did not have to know about a good part of how he was brought up and about his parentís destiny of Ďkeeping up with the Jonesesí. I donít know how this book can be useful to other Entrepreneurship students. However, I do feel the letter he wrote to the staff telling them about the company problems with money and how they were going to fix it was something every entrepreneur should consider doing if there business is sliding in the wrong direction. I like the fact that he shared this information without just laying off staff; even from the tone of the letter made them feel comfortable and he invited them to ask questions.

I am extremely enjoyed the book on the inside of the company of Zappos. His excitement for the business and his drive do it and out-of-the-box thinking. This book is like a biography of how he started out and his path to success. I highly recommend this book. Read full review
