How do you define success? In the current model that we have come to accept, success is equated with overwork, burnout, sleep deprivation, never seeing your family, being connected through email 24 hours a day and exhaustion - put simply it isn't working. In this book, Arianna Huffington rebuts - and extends - the debate launched with Sheryl Sandberg's international bestseller 'Lean In', arguing that a successful life is made up of more than just money and success and must also include what she calls 'The Third Metric': personal care, health, and fulfilment.
Forget about the glass ceiling - let's change the system altogether by redefining the very meaning of success at work and in our personal lives
"In Thrive, Arianna urges all of us to get in touch with who we really are so that we can live life on our own terms. From the importance of sleep to the imperative to listen to our own inner voice for ways to deal with the daily time crunches we all feel, this book lays out a path for each of us to look within and make our lives more authentic and fulfilling." Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and author of Lean In "At once intimate and formidable, this book is Arianna Huffington at her persuasive best. Thrive is a clarion call, a meditation, and a practical response to the question of how to live." Susan Cain, author of New York Times bestseller Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking "Once in a generation, a book comes along that can truly transform your life. This is it. The most unhappy people are those who have achieved unfathomable money, power, and fame and found that it didn't bring them the happiness they were seeking. Now what? Thrive doesn't show just how to become more successful; it shows how to realize and experience what matters most." Dean Ornish, founder of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, bestselling author of The Spectrum "Thrive is a captivating look at what it takes to live a more meaningful, satisfying life. Brimming with passion, supported by science, and crowned with practical insights, Arianna's exceptional book will transform our workplaces, schools, and families." Adam Grant, Wharton professor and author of Give and Take "Arianna Huffington has written a passionate and much needed prescription for reshaping life from the inside out. Turn off your cell phone, your email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and every other tool of the stressed-out, distracted world to spend some time thinking about grace, joy and wonder. You'll be glad you did." Ellen Goodman, Pulitzer prize winning columnist and bestselling author of I Know Just What You Mean
