    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    Maybe it was because I have read The Blue Zone, but this felt stale; nothing new. ...

    This is a beautiful short book which has made me rethink a lot of things about my life. I have always been fascinated by Japanese culture and living, and this book covers it all. It explains that if you want to live a long time, you must find your "ikigai" - quite literally your purpos...

    I really enjoy the simple and easy reading, as if I was reading the authors journals from their search about Ikigai. And this is such an important theme and I'd suggest everyone should read about it or be more conscious about it, specially if you aren't living your passion. On a side ...

    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 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. ...

    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 ...

    Ik zal er geen geheim van maken: ik ben enthousiast over 'Ikigai'! Ik heb na het lezen van dit boek enorm veel geleerd en met een aantal adviezen ben ik meteen aan de slag gegaan. De betekenis van Ikigai is simpel: een reden zoeken voor je bestaan. Waar wordt je gelukkig van? Wat is...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    Maybe it was because I have read The Blue Zone, but this felt stale; nothing new. ...

    This book touches on man?s search for meaning by Viktor Frankl, flow and the blue zones that talks about the longest living regions in the world. It offers some sound advice that we could all use! ...

    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 sadece uzun ya?ama yntemlerini anlatan bir kitap de?il. Hayat?n?z? daha anlaml?, sa?l?kl? ve mutlu geirmenize olanak sa?layacak giri? niteli?inde bir ya?am k?lavuzu. Birok k?lavuzda oldu?u gibi size caddeleri anlat?yor, sokaklar? de?il. Anlam aray??? ...

    Estoy anonadado, hacia tiempo que un libro no me enganchaba de esta forma. Es un libro de estos que quieres que lean todos los seres a los que quieres, porque sabes que les va a impactar positivamente en su vida sin ninguna duda. ...

    Dit boek heeft mij ontzettend verrast! Het is een soort gids met tips voor een gezond en gelukkig leven, waarvan ik er vele ga toepassen. Ook staan er vele wijze levenslessen in van de Japanse honderd-plussers. Wat mij betreft een aanrader ?! ...

    This is a beautiful short book which has made me rethink a lot of things about my life. I have always been fascinated by Japanese culture and living, and this book covers it all. It explains that if you want to live a long time, you must find your "ikigai" - quite literally your purpos...

    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...
