Ikigai: Los secretos de Japón para una vida larga y feliz Reviews
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 the first half, where they go into ideas, like what a good diet is, what flow is and how to achieve it, etc. The later part of the book focuses more on people who have lived to be old, and it was still interesting, ...more
Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life
Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means "a reason for being." It is similar to the French phrase Raison d'être. Everyone, according to Japanese culture, has an ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is important to the cultural belief that discovering one's ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.

Yıllardır bir ikigaim varmış da farkında değilmişim. Şimdi daha bilinçli bir şekilde yaşamıma devam edeceğim. ikigaimi keşfettim, mutlu olmanın kendimce yorumunu buldum. anti-kırılganlık kavramını keşfettim. mutluyum....
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." 💙
İlk başta Hygge gibi sanmıştım ama Hygge’den çok daha kapsamlı çıktı verdiği bilgiler ve yaptığı araştırmalar açısından. Yararlı bir kitap olmuş bence hayatı daha anlamlı ve güzel kılabilmek adına iyi fikirler veriyor.
Eğer bu kitabı uzun yaşamın sırrı için okursanız (100 yaşına kadar yaşamaya ne gerek var da neyse) tatmin olabilirsiniz. İkigai denilen hayatın amacını bulma kısmı benim asıl ilgimi çeken kısımdı ki çok değişik bir bilgiyle karşılaştım diyemem. Biraz şey gibi olmuş, iki farklı konuyu anlatıp üçüncü bölümde bunları birleştirmeye çalışan tezler. Uzun ve mutlu yaşam + hayatınızın amacını nasıl bulursunuz, bulanlar nasıl bulmuş örnekleri. Kitapta Zen budizmi, Tai Chi gibi felsefesi olan öğretilerden ...more
I could live with the fact that every idea about the Western approach to finding a purpose in life is taken from Frankl, Taleb and a few others. With no personal contribution from the authors. But to claim that you interviewed 100 people from Okinawa and to present your readers with no more than 5 pages of random (and in no way revealing, profound or even interesting) quotes from these interviews...that is just disrespectful. To the reader and to the interviewees.
Maybe it was because I have read The Blue Zone, but this felt stale; nothing new.
