THE ALGEBRA OF HAPPINESS

The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google?A fantastic, provocative book about where we are now and where we are going? Phil Simon Huffington Post Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong. For all that?s been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway.Instead of buying the myths these companies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions:- How did the Four infiltrate our lives so completely that they?re almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? – Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? – And as they race to become the world?s first trillion-dollar company, can anyone challenge them? In the same irreverent style that has made him one of the world?s most celebrated business professors, Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves, at a speed and scope others can?t match. And he reveals how you can apply the lessons of their ascent to your own business or career. Whether you want to compete with them, do business with them, or simply live in the world they dominate, you need to understand the Four.The Algebra of Happiness: The pursuit of success, love and what it all meansFrom the New York Times bestselling author, a provocative book of hard-won wisdom for achieving a fulfilling career and life. – How can you have a meaningful career, not just a lucrative one?- Is a work/life balance really possible?- What does it take to make a long-term relationship succeed?- What can you do now so there are no regrets aged 40, 50 or 80? As Scott Galloway puts it, by the time you hit your mid twenties sh*t gets real. Life become stressful. Even the smart, the hard working and the elite can feel lost in a chaotic, noisy and unpredictable world. As a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, the debate in Galloway’s MBA class often veers away from business strategy to the challenging issue of life strategies. Which is why Galloway, in his signature, take-no-prisoners style, has developed a dynamic formula for a life well lived. In The Algebra of Happiness Galloway tells you how life can be navigated and negotiated better to maximise happiness and minimise the inevitable stress. Delivering practical advice and hard-won wisdom on everything from when to own property to how hard to work, this is self-help for anyone struggling with life’s big questions. Through simple equations that measure the relationship between success, resilience and failure or the correlation between happiness and money, Galloway attempts to convert intangible advice to tangible equations.The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google?A fantastic, provocative book about where we are now and where we are going?
