Product Description

Review

"In Thrive, Arianna urges all of us to get in touch with who we really are so that we can live life on our own terms. From the importance of sleep to the imperative to listen to our own inner voice for ways to deal with the daily time crunches we all feel, this book lays out a path for each of us to look within and make our lives more authentic and fulfilling." (Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and author of Lean In)

"At once intimate and formidable, this book is Arianna Huffington at her persuasive best. Thrive is a clarion call, a meditation, and a practical response to the question of how to live." (Susan Cain, author of New York Times bestseller Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking)

"Once in a generation, a book comes along that can truly transform your life. This is it. The most unhappy people are those who have achieved unfathomable money, power, and fame and found that it didn’t bring them the happiness they were seeking. Now what? Thrive doesn’t show just how to become more successful; it shows how to realize and experience what matters most." (Dean Ornish, founder of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, bestselling author of The Spectrum)

"Thrive is a captivating look at what it takes to live a more meaningful, satisfying life. Brimming with passion, supported by science, and crowned with practical insights, Arianna’s exceptional book will transform our workplaces, schools, and families." (Adam Grant, Wharton professor and author of Give and Take)

"Arianna Huffington has written a passionate and much needed prescription for reshaping life from the inside out. Turn off your cell phone, your email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and every other tool of the stressed-out, distracted world to spend some time thinking about grace, joy and wonder. You'll be glad you did." (Ellen Goodman, Pulitzer prize winning columnist and bestselling author of I Know Just What You Mean)

Thought provoking and easy to read. Focuses back on traditional values of living a good and happy life, rather than getting burned out by the rat-race lifestyle many of us are getting tired of. Also a fair point that if we want to create a society where women play a role at top management level, we need to create a more sustainable business culture, where people are measured and promoted according to results and not facetime or 24/7 availability. This is the only way women will ever be able and willing to combine a high-responsibility management career with bringing up a family. We are dependent on both to ensure the economic wellbeing of future generations.

Its a very down to earth book and written from the heart. Challenges the writers lifestyle and how to define life, its about well being, wisdom and wonder, the need for us all to change happiness from feeling good and doing good and reconnecting ourselves. Nowadays we all get wake up calls which usually we would act on, but sometimes a book is written by a writer who shows how her struggles and challenges eventually catch up on her and she transforms herself by using meditation, giving, laughter , mindfulness and sleep.

I recommend reading this book every day to remind ourselves about how wonderful it is to be living. Even when times are tough, Huffington reminds us that giving will increase our wellbeing. The simple act of opening our eyes each morning is a miracle and our job is to share our talents with the world.

Thrive is an inspirational mirror for all of us; I found myself many times questioning myself about the things emphasized in the book. The basic insight is "there is no absolute truth for manhood" but you need to continue reading, interacting, learning and most importantly questioning yourself and others to come as close as possible towards that "truth" and balance in life. In the book you are given many facts and evidence to motivate you for searching for more. Easy read and still quite insightful.

The reason that Arianna has more time to relax and have more time to herself is because she can write a book this short and I paid good money to read it. For someone who is a writer and an accomplished woman, this should have been a fascinating and informative read. Sadly, it lacked in any real content and to call it thin is an understatement.

I just could not Get into this at all. I read about a third of the book and I abandoned. I do agree with her that we are suffering from info overload and need to pull back from being online and get back to just being.

Very useful book from an idol. It's very interesting at some points, but a bit too much of statistics through the book. I read it with intervals, but overall, gives another perspective about your work life and your alternatives.

This was only OK. I was hoping for some original and clever insights but it was just more of the same I'm afraid. Arianna Huffington must have thousands of interesting stories but all we got was 'Get more sleep'. Hmmm.
