In her book Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder, Arianna Huffington explains that our current view of success is making us sick. Citing her personal wake-up call that occurred after a fall due to exhaustion and lack of sleep, Huffington points out that our current view of success relies on two metrics: money and power. The author introduces a third metric, which includes well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving. This book is a refreshing invitation to exhale and step off the treadmill. Huffington's statement that we need "empty spaces" in our schedules resonated with me at a time when we are encouraged to multitask and over=program. I especially appreciated the fact that Huffington includes medical research findings as well as examples from businesses and individuals in this book. I highly recommend "Thrive" to anyone who is looking for a humane view of success.

Each chapter draws you into a deeper level of insight with great wit, compassion and beautiful writing. I was pleasantly surprised.

Not exactly earth-shattering, this book serves as a reminder of things we already know and have heard before. Way too many facts for a self-help book  and not enough soul. I believe Arianna is sincere in her message but  the approach is business-like rather than heart-felt. .

The book is basically a bunch of articles re-written from a Google search. I doubt A.H. did much of the work herself other  than string  together the articles her staffers found on the Internet. Not original - no reporting from primary sources - just a rehash of various articles available to anyone who does the research themselves.

Non-fiction. I really just do not have enough good things to say about this book! Read it. There are helpful ideas and thoughts in here for everybody, but especially if you are a working woman and mother. This is a book for our times, discussing how over-stressed and over-worked we are, how we are doing some of it to ourselves, and what some solutions are to these situations. Some of it is small, like not checking your email constantly or leaving it open all the time so it pings relentlessly in your ear, others are deeper and more complex issues that may not appeal to some, like daily meditation. This is not one of those books where the privileged rich person is telling the poor person how to live. It is humble, insightful, honest, and above all else extremely helpful!

Excellent read and reminder of how we can thrive through better mindfulness and conscientious living. Don't feel like you've read this stuff before! Arianna Huffington provides her personal experience and perspective, but the book is also chock-full of new studies and statistics that show us there is a new way to manage our lives in and out of the workplace. It's a great read, written by a creditable, dynamic and successful leader.

A very down to earth and from the heart book, challenges the writers lifestyle and how to re define life. Its about well being wisdom and wonder, the need for us to change happiness from feeling good and doing good and reconnecting ourselves.

Huffington made her wealth by cheating writers. Writers work hard at their articles and should be paid. Yes, we like to write, but that doesn't mean we should not get paid. We have the same expenses for housing, health care and food that others have. Huffington should respect writers and pay them for the work they do for her.
