Scott Galloway teaches brand strategy at NYU's Stern School of Business, but his most popular lectures deal with life strategy, not business. In the classroom, on his blog, and in YouTube videos garnering millions of views, he regularly offers hard-hitting answers to the big questions: What's the formula for a life well lived? How can you have a meaningful career, not just a lucrative one? Is work/life balance possible? What are the elements of a successful relationship?
The Algebra of Happiness: Notes on the Pursuit of Success, Love, and Meaning draws on Professor Galloway's mix of anecdotes and no-BS insight to share hard-won wisdom about life's challenges, along with poignant personal stories.
Whether it's advice on if you should drop out of school to be an entrepreneur (it might have worked for Steve Jobs, but you're probably not Steve Jobs), ideas on how to position yourself in a crowded job market (do something "boring" and move to a city; passion is for people who are already rich), discovering what the most important decision in your life is (it's not your job, your car, OR your zip code), or arguing that our relationships to others are ultimately all that matter, Galloway entertains, inspires, and provokes.
Brash, funny, and surprisingly moving, The Algebra of Happiness represents a refreshing perspective on our need for both professional success and personal fulfillment, and makes the perfect gift for any new graduate, or for anyone who feels adrift.
“The Algebra of Happiness offers raw and vulnerable wisdom, delivered with heart. We all can learn from Galloway's mistakes and insights." —Derek Sivers, author of Anything You Want
"This book is required reading for everyone with a heartbeat. Scott delivers powerful, hard-earned life lessons that will resonate with anyone who hasn’t had their common sense surgically removed." —Eric Barker, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Barking Up The Wrong Tree

The book is arranged in short separate sections with titles such as "Success," "Love," "Health," etc. I know, I know. Again? It's worlds apart from the other books in the self help section. Those are typically written by psychology majors and PhDs with no real world experience. You need drunk Scott here. Reading most of those self help books with a fake British accent isn't going to help you. Sean from CrossFIt will however. So will Randy from Reno. And NYU grad students who apparently think they've bought the right to walk in late on life. This is a book on compounding en masse. You want to scale? Form a rational foundation early in life. Floors, not ceilings. Selection of spouse. Career track. Hyundais not Teslas. It's all here. Journey through the highs and lows of the internet bubble, housing bubble, on through whatever we can call this current wave of liquidity.
This is cetainly not "The Four." I would highly recommend that one as well. This is an author who's star is just so bright over the past few years. Do some research. Check out his presentations online and podcasts. I will say my business partner was in NYC last summer and ran into Scott on the train. He was out from California and Prof Galloway was nothing but gracious and kind. Could've been less than gracious, but practices what he's preaching in the new book. Buy now! Just don't order it through Samsung pay on your Discover card.
An easy read and some might enjoy, but I was looking for more truth, insight, and knowledge.
I wish I would have read this book when I was 18. He immediately opens the book with a lesson about how long, hard work is what distinguishes people in economic success, and those who choose "balance" in their 20s sacrifice later income potential (unfortunately). What makes this book so hard-hitting is that it's not your typical self-help book authored by a psychologist; it's written with the perspective of real-life wins and failures through short dabs of advice and vignettes, only a paragraph long, about what NOT to do and why it's important to follow these life lessons. Somehow, he makes his points with such great impact that, though they sound like old cliches (e.g., "work hard"), they land and resonate with me in a way that no other book has.
In short, just read it. It's a quick read yet so beneficial.

Prof. Galloway uses his analytical skills proven pretty darn accurate in the marketing realm and uses it to break down the fundamental truths of meaning and happiness.
