    Do one thing. Get your retired father/grand-father's mobile phone. Seek permission to check his WhatsApp messages. (He won't say 'No'. Just ask him.) Go to the group titled "Retired Employees Association" or "Second Innings" or "Life begins at 60" or "Sunset Club" or something like tha...

    I liked the majority of this book but I was not enthused with the focus on Eastern exercise techniques (that chapter seemed too long). I found the stories about individuals and their own lives more interesting instead of the movement and breathing exercises. For me, I would like to kno...

    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...

    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 ...

    I enjoyed this book, it borrows a lot from different theories, but gives them a nicely written summary. As you read it you may find things that speak to you, that you would like to pursue, while others may not be as much to your liking. For me the most interesting part of the book was ...

    Not bad, I also recently read: "The Little Book of Ikigai: The Essential Japanese Way to Find Your Purpose in Life". However, to be completely frank, I found neither of these two books to be that useful nor interesting. Yep... Without reading the official description of Ikigai, wh...

    This is a short book with a mismash of ideas starting about finding one's purpose and how keeping active, having a social life within a community and having light work is the secret to longevity. However there was nothing new or insightful here, and towards the second half of the book ...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    Ikigai: the sweet spot where passion meets profession meets mission meets vocation. This book isn't about how you can find your ikigai , even though it does offer a few tips on finding your "flow" and maintaining it. This book is primarily about longevity, and contributing factors....

    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. ...

    Ikigai is seen as the convergence of four primary elements: What you love (your passion) What the world needs (your mission) What you are good at (your vocation) What you can get paid for (your profession)This was a mess. Surface level, vague information that you can Google under...

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

    Enjoyed reading the book. It gave me some good, smaller insights. The kind you need to re-read once in a while. Towards the end some topics were discribed in too much detail and therefore they were not that interesting. I would recommed the book, it's a light and interesting read. ...

    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...

    Ikigai ???? is a Japanese term for "a reason for being." The word Ikigai usually refers to the source of value in one's life or the things that make one's life worthwhile. First of all, I wish I had enjoyed this book more since it was one of my most anticipated read for this...

    Mixed feelings while reading this book. I believe the title and content is not matched. About 30% for the secret of Japanese people. The rest is all about other research findings. Nonetheless, this book makes me more understand and know about some concept even though it was not relat...

    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...

    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...

    The book's title is a little misleading: while it does talk about ikigai, it also talks about what things are connected to it, and the main point is on having a long, happy, healthy(ish) life, as seen from the (mostly) Okinawan way of life. The authors traveled to Ogimi, which is in Ok...
