Just saw that Tony Hsieh died tonight. I met him once. Loved his book. Read it twice. Gave it out a lot. So young. Such a shame. Visionary person. Brilliant. Sad.

Saying that Tony Hsieh “revolutionized the shoe business” misses the point entirely.
He revolutionized the being human in business business.

RIP Tony Hsieh of Zappos.
For those of us who published business books in the 2010-2013 time period, the success of Tony’s book “Delivering Happiness” was the case study in how to build a movement around a book.

OMG such loss Broken heart Tony Hsieh was original inspiration for @sidraqasim and me to get into shoe business back in our village in Pakistan.
Also responsible for my very first visit to the US back in 2014, as one of the speakers at Downtown Project. He was very kind.
