    I could live with the fact that every idea about the Western approach to finding a purpose in life is taken from Frankl, Taleb and a few others. With no personal contribution from the authors. But to claim that you interviewed 100 people from Okinawa and to present your readers with no...

    The book is a light dive into the Japanese concept of ikigai (fulfillment through knowing one's raison d'tre) and into the "secrets" of supercentenarians (over 110 years) in Okinawa. I am not sure if it's the translation from Spanish to English that makes the book feel a little ... h...

    I kind of feel bad panning this book, because I think helping people find their ikigai -- or their purpose in life -- is a worthwhile goal. The problem is, I have to think that the author and his publisher know that this book doesn't come anywhere close to achieving that goal. In...

    Quick review for a quick read. I definitely like the concept of "ikigai" and looked forward to learning more about the concept based on the description this book gave. However, upon finishing this - I felt that some of the advice was helpful, but very generalized and unfocused in this ...

    This is a small. It powerful book filled with easy and obtainable goals. I've learned that I must achieve flow by giving up multi-tasking, slowing things down, living in the moment, and to breathe. Back to my sun salutations and meditations. ...

    Ik kreeg deze als cadeautje van de lieve Luna van @leesdame en heb het boek binnen een dag uitgelezen. De rode draad van het boek is oud worden door bezig te blijven, maar het gaat veel verder dan dat. Waar ik nog het meest van kan leren is de les; concentreer je op n ding tegelijk...

    The below review is as on https://thebookishbulletin.wordpress.... Having read a good number of self-help books in the past and not being too inspired by any of them, I was kind of reluctant to pick this one up. But there was something so soothing and inviting about the cover-the de...

    Authors demonstrate a superficial understanding of the subject matter ?ikigai? - it seems like they produced a nice Venn diagram and stopped there, resorting to name-dropping and sprinkling of the common consciousness tropes (eg flow state, meditation, stoicism) for the rest of the...

    I'm so disappointed. I thought this would be an amazing book but actually it's a mess. I could see what the authors were trying to do but they could have done it in 40 pages or less. There were some contradictory thoughts, not to mention the amount of times the same ideia was repeated ...

    I just got my Japanese pension book in the mail today, but won't be able to use it for a good 20 years yet, so staying alive for a long time suddenly just became a bit more real for me: to get all my pension payments back I'll need to be around for a good 30 more years at least. And th...

    The last book I read on this topic was really inspiring and I couldn?t put it down. I was looking forward to reading this one and was woefully disappointed. It?s insipid, tedious and misses the point entirely. ...

    This book has nothing to do with Ikigai. Honestly it should've been titled How to Live a Long Life like an Okinawan. ...

    Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means "a reason for being." It is similar to the French phrase Raison d'tre. Everyone, according to Japanese culture, has an ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. ...

    Meh. It's really just a recap of The Blue Zones of Happiness with emphasis on the Okinawa aspect. The quote I find most disconcerting, after reading the entire book, is "There is no perfect strategy to connecting with our ikigai"....but (what we learn from the Okinawans) is "don't worr...

    I literally inhaled this book. Ikigai is a beautiful book about Japanese culture and discusses the secret to a long and happy life. If you're interested in Japanese culture and self-development this gorgeous book is for you. Just reading this had a calm and centering effect on me. "Hap...

    Ik zal het boek hier even samenvatten, want het is nogal lang van stof. De enige hint in dit boek om je Ikigai te vinden, is door jezelf de vraag 'Waarom heb je nog geen zelfmoord gepleegd?' te stellen. Daar moet je bij optellen dat je gezond moet eten en voldoende moet bewegen, en in...

    This isn't a bad book but it's not as informative as I hoped it would be. I didn't feel that an adequate job was done of fleshing out the titular concept. It read more like a sci pop piece (in the style of Gladwell, not Pinker or Diamond) mixed with an amateur's ethnography of a blue z...

    Ikigai is a Japanese concept that translates to 'reason for being'. Until picking this book up on a whim (the cover was pretty, and I am easily sold on pretty books), I had never really heard of this idea, so this book acted as my introduction. The Good - This book was simply w...

    I expected more but this book disappoints. It doesnt seem to follow a clear thread but rather jumps randomly around from one fact to another (which the authors thought relevant) such as stress and what it does to the body, and then short profiles on some of the longest lived persons on...
