Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion and Purpose by Tony Hsieh (2009)

This fun-loving entrepreneur may be as well-known for his unconventional management principles as he is for his Zappos shoe empire. Tony Hsieh’s high-minded manifesto: The workplace can and should be a place where employees find personal fulfillment. To that end, Hsieh focuses on fostering happy, passionate, and communicative staffers. When set against the success story that is Zappos—where there’s a free Zappos library, and feel-good training seminars—it’s clear Hsieh is onto something.
