Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Ikigai by Héctor García and Francesc Miralles, read by Noako Mori.

Bring meaning and joy to your every day with the internationally best-selling guide to ikigai.

The people of Japan believe that everyone has an ikigai - a reason for being; the thing that gets you out of bed each morning. And according to the residents of the Japanese island of Okinawa - the world's longest-living people - finding it is the key to a longer and more fulfilled life.

Inspiring and comforting, this book will bring you closer to these centenarians' secrets: how they leave urgency behind; keep doing what they love for as long as possible; nurture friendships; live in the moment; participate in their communities; and throw themselves into their passions. And it provides practical tools to help you discover your own personal ikigai.

Because who doesn't want to find happiness in every day?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

A few chapters on Ikegai and then a mix

Some interesting chapters on the idea of Ikegai, recommended for that. Not the yoga or antifragile.

interesting and providing food for thought

As some of the previous reviewers mentioned, this book may not provide you with the deepest analysis of every topic it covers. On the other hand it gives you an overview of the Japanese approach to longevity and touches on a few subjects which you are free to explore in greater detail in other sources.
In my view, despite being rooted in the Japanese culture and customs, it does provide a number of very universal ideas which can easily be adopted in Western culture. I found this book interesting and it certainly left some food for thought triggering interest to explore some topics in-depth.

Too shallow to really make a difference

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book is not bad, but just too shallow and simplistic to make a real difference. Many points the writers make seem to be explained either too little, or seem to be woven into the Japanese culture too much for a member of Western society to be able to adapt it so quickly. For example, the writers tell the listener there is no Japanese word for ''retirement''. How do the writers then expect a Western reader to immediately understand and adapt to the Japanese idea of never retiring when they have grown up with retirement all embedded in their life? There's also a much too optimistic description of how ''every Japanese person has a passion they follow'' and how this keeps them going. Why not tell the reader the whole story, about the crushing pressure the Japanese society holds on people, the pressure to succeed, to get a good job, to behave perfectly and be humble and agreeable and whatnot? Perhaps the people of a 100 years old did not feel this pressure yet in their youth, but the current Japanese society is definitely not as ideal and full of ''passion'' as these writers try to make it seem. This book is written like an unrealistic, idealistic fairytale that just does not hit the right spot. A real shame.

What about Naoko Mori’s performance did you like?

The voice of Naoko was very nice to listen to. It was soft and the Japanese words came out so perfectly, they made a welcome change to the English.
