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.

The book I am reviewing is Thrive by Arianna Huffington which is a very good book which I bought on kindle. This book is semi-autobiographical and Arianna is famous for creating the Huffington Post which started out as a current affairs blog and she got lots of guest writer's to write posts often for a relatively small fee but the site became extremely and nowadays it is seen as quite an honor to write a post for them and can increase traffic to your blog quite considerably. Prior to writing this book she had been working all hours and getting little sleep mainly because they were trying to launch international versions of the Huffington Post in countries like Germany, Canada & South Korea. She subsequently had to do a talk for graduating students at a college which she takes very seriously on account of having children herself at college and it made her question if she was right to be working all hours and she subsequently sold the Huffington Post and has written this book about her attempts to get her life back on track and some of the techniques she used. She does talk about women traditionally have lived longer than men and with competition in the workplace and more in general being expected from women, this gap is narrowing all the time. You have to find a balance between work and what matters in your life and rest and relaxation. It's no accident the current epidemic of hyperactivity and ADHD among children and in general they get 1 hour less sleep every night and we put them under more and more pressure to be productive in their waking hours. This means they have less time to wind down before bedtime and they are less likely to get enough deep or REM sleep a major factor in ADHD.Read more ›

Arianna tackles a very important issue in our modern age that of our workaholic, always-on society that defines success by how much money you make or what job title you have.

Her book is a move to influence people to change this trend in their lifestyles. She encourages readers to take practical steps towards living a more balanced life that truly reflects success in real terms successful relationships, health, wisdom and a rich, fulfilling life.

This is why I would recommend this book because I believe in this message - that financial or career success is hollow if in reaching it, you've had to sacrifice relationships, health, peace or enjoyment of life

I loved how her book started with her very real account of the epiphany she experienced which led her to making major lifestyle adjustments to re-order her out-of-control life. The book is also really well researched, with plenty of evidence showing how overworked, stressed out, unhealthy and unhappy our modern society is, and she offers valuable practical lessons on how to make the right changes.

The well-being chapters were my favourite by far and I found the sections on sleep particularly interesting and helpful. She is also clearly very well-read and I liked the range of interesting and varied examples, anecdotes, quotes and facts scattered throughout the book. I also loved the personal nature of her accounts of her mother who sounds like she was an amazing and wise woman.

I'm not much of a fan of contemporary religion references nor Greek mythology and it didn't personally resonate with me or add to the value I got out of the book though - but that's just a personal preference.

The author really has hit it on the head - she looks at what our society/life has become with all the modern trends and gadgets. The necessity of slowing it all down to appreciate what we have, when we have it. She has researched very well and included many pertinent modern day examples of what is being done wrong, what is being done right. Proof that less, is in fact more and healthier too. Just finished it and will read again, this time taking notes and sticking them on my computer / fridge / everywhere! Well done Arianna!
