Delivering Happiness

Delivering Happiness

Everyone loves a comeback story, and Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose ($13) by Zappos founder and CEO Tony Hsieh delivers. Going from selling off LinkExchange for $265 million to having to fund Zappos out of his own pocket, Hsieh offers insight into the beliefs and business practices that led to his renewed success. When someone's able to start and eventually sell a company for $1.2 billion, they're often worth listening to.

  • Straight Down the Middle

    Sometimes taking it easy is the best advice: just ask Josh Karp, the author of
    Straight Down the Middle
    ($17). This half-comedy, half-road trip of a book follows Karp on his personal journey across the U.S. and parts of Europe, as he seeks non-traditional golf instruction to fix his swing. Hogan's Five Lessons it's not, but it is entertaining, somewhat informative, and certainly can't hurt you swing, which is more than we can say for most infomercial golfing gadgets.

  • Geek Dad

    Have a youngling — or younglings — to whom you'd like to impart a bit of your geeky ways? Let Geek Dad ($12) be your guide. Written by Ken Denmead, engineer and editor of Wired's GeekDad blog, this 240-page tome is a collection of geeky projects and activities you can do with your little ones, like launching a video camera with balloons, creating a comic strip, making geeky crafts, and constructing the "Best Slip n' Slide Ever." Just remember: these are projects for you to share with your kids, not for you to tinker with yourself out in the garage.
