about this book

Thrive is a call to arms to redefine how we measure success in our work lives and personal lives. Beyond money and power, Arianna Huffington says, is the Third Metric: the importance of well-being, wisdom and fulfillment. The third metric is creating a revolution in our lives, one that will be led by women as they reinvent what it means to be successful in the workplace--but that will ultimately affect men and women alike. Thrive is a vital next step in the debate on women, success and the workplace.

 
“In Thrive, Arianna urges all of us to get in touch with who we really are so that we can live life on our own terms. From the importance of sleep to the imperative to listen to our own inner voice for ways to deal with the daily time crunches we all feel, this book lays out a path for each of us to look within and make our lives more authentic and fulfilling.” -Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and author of Lean In 

"At once intimate and formidable, this book is Arianna Huffington at her persuasive best. Thrive is a clarion call, a meditation, and a practical response to the question of how to live.” -Susan Cain, author of New York Times bestseller Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking

"Arianna Huffington has been disrupting media as we know it for her entire career. Now, in remarkably vulnerable and moving prose, she explains that money and power are a small piece of success, the most important piece is the Third Metric—which incorporates not only well being, but also wisdom, wonder and giving. Reading this book is the best thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones. A monumental work that will change your life, and your health." -David B. Agus, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Engineering, University of Southern California and author NY Times bestsellers, The End of Illness and A Short Guide to a Long Life

Thrive is an urgently needed compendium of wisdom and practical guide enabling us to create peace of mind and well-being in our ever more chaotic lives.  Filled with cutting edge scientific research, captivating stories, and straightforward everyday practices, this book is a call-to-action that informs, invigorates, and inspires all at once.  Arianna Huffington’s ingenious gift is to bring herself fully into these pages as she invites us to join her on this rewarding journey to become more connected and compassionate with ourselves and others as we change our cultural conversation about how to best live our lives.” -Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of Brainstorm and Mindsight, professor, UCLA School of Medicine

“Once in a generation, a book comes along that can truly transform your life.  This is it.  The most unhappy people are those who have achieved unfathomable money, power, and fame and found that it didn’t bring them the happiness they were seeking.  Now what?  Thrive doesn’t show just how to become more successful; it shows how to realize and experience what matters most.”  -Dean Ornish, founder of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, bestselling author of The Spectrum

Thrive is a captivating look at what it takes to live a more meaningful, satisfying life.  Brimming with passion, supported by science, and crowned with practical insights, Arianna’s exceptional book will transform our workplaces, schools, and families.” -Adam Grant, Wharton professor and author of Give and Take
 
"Thrive is a book that makes me smile just thinking about it. It is a book
of wit, wisdom, and practical advice for changing our lives by changing
our values. After all, why should we be content just to live when we can
thrive?" -Anne-Marie Slaughter, professor, Princeton University, author of What Works for Women at Work

"Warning:  The content of this book is highly contagious. Even slight exposure may set you on a path to far clearer seeing, a radical resetting of your priorities, deep contentment, and, of course, thriving. Chances are, it will also melt your heart."  -Jon Kabat-Zinn, professor, UMass Medical School, author of Full Catastrophe Living

“One of the most important books of this century.  Weaving a tapestry of home-spun wisdom, science and compelling life stories, this is a profoundly uplifting and practical book that has something for everyone.  A must read for anyone wishing to live life more fully.” -Richard J. Davidson, founder and chair, Center for Investigating Healthy Minds, University of Wisconsin-Madison
