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

    Kişisel gelişim kitaplarını sevmem. Bu kitabı Japon kültürüne dayandığı için merak ettim. Hiç ilgimi çekmedi. İki yıldız bir kaç örnek için.

    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 over and over. Most of the times the graphics were completely unnecessary, as the text is super simple and easy to understand. Also, the amount of information about techniques and breathing exercises seemed as if t ...more

    Ik weet niet precies wat ik van dit boek vond.. Aan de ene kant vond ik het heel erg leuk en zaten er echt goede lessen in, maar aan de andere kant vond ik het soms enorm zweverig.. Maar misschien komt dat ook wel doordat ik helemaal niks heb met energiestromen door je lichaam enzo.

    Dat dorpje met zoveel 100-jarigen vond ik wel erg inspirerend! Mooie adviezen gaven die mensen ook in de interviews die in dit boek zijn weergegeven.

    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. "Happiness is always determined by your heart." 💙

  • Shhhhh Ahhhhh

    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 zone. I appreciate the smatterings of references to more dense material but felt that it was haphazardly weaved together. I don't feel like I've gotten a primer on the concept, but I do feel that I've gotten a quick ...more

    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 planet. These don't have much to do with the Ogimi folk of Okinawa that the researchers were going to visit and interview. I though they were going to write about them and their entire time spent with them, bu ...more
