Editorial Reviews

Review

“Integrating our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual lives really enables “one life” and our life's work. Thank you Tony!” (Alan Mulally, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ford Motor Company )

“Now, more than ever, we need a unified science of energy--what makes us work (and what doesn't.) [Schwartz] begins to unlock essential insights we're going to need to get more done and feel better while we're doing it.” (Seth Godin, blogger and bestselling author of Linchpin )

“I’ve read dozens of books about leadership and management. What makes this book unique and essential is the integrated and comprehensive way it addresses the challenge of getting the best from people. At Zappos we deeply believe that truly meeting our employees’ needs is what inspires their great performance. [Be Excellent At Anything] lays out a compelling new workplace paradigm and a detailed roadmap for organizations, leaders and individuals seeking to gain true competitive advantage, even as the rules change every day.” (Tony Hsieh, CEO Zappos.com )

“[Tony Schwartz] is essential reading for anyone who wants a more productive and meaningful life. It’s less a self-help book than a peer-reviewed survival manual for the modern age ...[He] provides a road map for how to take back control of our lives from our faster-better-more-techno-merry-go-round culture.” (Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post )

"[Schwartz] takes a look at self-destructive behaviors that are common in the workplace, then gives a prescription for correcting each...entirely refreshing." (The Wall Street Journal)

"An engaging, thorough, and authoritative manual for optimal performance and for a rewarding life. Tony Schwartz has done it again. A business must read." (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence )

“[The Energy] project and this book are shedding light on what most working folks know but don’t like to talk about: that most of us are not fully engaged or satisfied in our work environment…[Schwartz] proposes solutions for business leaders to maximize human potential by embracing our need for both effort and renewal.” (Booklist)

"The foundations of great leadership are self-awareness and thoughtful action, and the ideas in this book can be truly life-changing for both. The transformative power of this lies in its ability to help very smart and already high-performing people change their current behaviors to be even more effective, fulfilled and connected to others." (Evan Wittenberg, Head of Global Leadership Development, Google, Inc. )

“There's one compelling reason to read The Way We're Working Isn't Working—it works! The 100 senior leaders at the LAPD took the course on which the book is based, and while we were doubtful at first, we became believers and beneficiaries.” (Bill Bratton, Former LAPD Police Chief )

“I've read dozens of books about leadership and management. What makes this book unique and essential is the integrated and comprehensive way it addresses the challenge of getting the best from people. At Zappos we deeply believe that truly meeting our employees' needs is what inspires their great performance. The Way We Work Isn't Working lays out a compelling new workplace paradigm and a detailed roadmap for organizations, leaders and individuals seeking to gain true competitive advantage, even as the rules change every day.” (Tony Hsieh, CEO Zappos.com )

"The Way We're Working Isn't Working offers us an engaging, thorough, and authoritative manual for optimal performance and for a rewarding life. Tony Schwartz has done it again—a business must-read." (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence )
