Publisher's Summary

In 2010, world-renowned innovation expert Clayton M. Christensen gave a powerful speech to the Harvard Business School's graduating class. Drawing upon his business research, he offered a series of guidelines for finding meaning and happiness in life. He used examples from his own experiences to explain how high achievers can all too often fall into traps that lead to unhappiness.

The speech was memorable not only because it was deeply revealing but also because it came at a time of intense personal reflection: Christensen had just overcome the same type of cancer that had taken his father's life. As Christensen struggled with the disease, the question "How do you measure your life?" became more urgent and poignant, and he began to share his insights more widely with family, friends, and students.

In this groundbreaking book, Christensen puts forth a series of questions: How can I be sure that I'll find satisfaction in my career? How can I be sure that my personal relationships become enduring sources of happiness? How can I avoid compromising my integrity - and stay out of jail? Using lessons from some of the world's greatest businesses, he provides incredible insights into these challenging questions.

How Will You Measure Your Life? is full of inspiration and wisdom, and will help students, midcareer professionals, and parents alike forge their own paths to fulfillment.

    "Excellent Lessons for Work and Home Life"

    I only wish this book had come out when I was just getting out of college.

    The performance was solid but nothing great. That said I am by no means a Audible power user so my opinion in this does not have the weighted experience.

    "Principles of Meaning in Life"

    The book is written for business students, helping them to find purpose and integrity in their careers while also finding satisfaction in their personal and spiritual lives.
    I recommend the book for anyone in any vocation. The principles are sound and universally applicable.

    "Great Read by a Great Man"

    I loved this listen. I have heard Clayton Christensen live at an LDS fireside and the book was just as good but more goodies in there. May we all seek to find our purpose in life and live up to it.

    "Rethinking success"

    So many business and success books focus just on performance, and hard, quantifiable evidence and business related performance. These books often leave out the fact or ignore the reality that people are a part of the lives of other people. This book expertly addresses both sides of success.

    "overly religious self help book"

    Started off well, hard to finish as author pushes religion down reader's throat. Author very much sees life as morally black or white. Making room for the grey is moral bankruptcy in his view. I think life is more complex than what the Religious Right makes it out to be.

    "Disappointed with the content"

    Too clutter ideas. Sometimes lost in chapters because the essence failed to capture me. The title thrills me but the content was disappointing to me
