As much as I was disappointed with Tony Hsiesh's book "Delivering Happiness" I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I should note that while familiar with Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, this was the first time I read something that applied his ideas to the world of business in a formal/systemic manner. For those that have read some of the books Conley cites as his main influence in thinking about how to apply Maslow's ideas to the workplace, you are unlikely to get as much value from the book as I did.
Also, as someone who is interested in the hospitality business I found some of the specifics he discussed around Joie de Vivre to be helpful.
(*** Please note: I have read many fantastic articles by Hsieh, and find it illuminating to watch him speak. I just didn't think his book added depth to the ideas discussed in his shorter form articles/interviews***)
