Product description


[Schwartz] takes a look at self-destructive behaviors that are common in the workplace, then gives a prescription for correcting each...entirely refreshing.--Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post "The Wall Street Journal"

An engaging, thorough, and authoritative manual for optimal performance and for a rewarding life. Tony Schwartz has done it again. A business must read.--Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence "The Wall Street Journal"

"[Tony Schwartz] is essential reading for anyone who wants a more productive and meaningful life. It's less a self-help book than a peer-reviewed survival manual for the modern age ...[He] provides a road map for how to take back control of our lives from our faster-better-more-techno-merry-go-round culture."--Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post

"I've read dozens of books about leadership and management. What makes this book unique and essential is the integrated and comprehensive way it addresses the challenge of getting the best from people. At Zappos we deeply believe that truly meeting our employees' needs is what inspires their great performance. [Be Excellent At Anything] lays out a compelling new workplace paradigm and a detailed roadmap for organizations, leaders and individuals seeking to gain true competitive advantage, even as the rules change every day."--Tony Hsieh, CEO Zappos.com

"Now, more than ever, we need a unified science of energy--what makes us work (and what doesn't.) [Schwartz] begins to unlock essential insights we're going to need to get more done and feel better while we're doing it."--Seth Godin, blogger and bestselling author of Linchpin
