批評家のレビュー

"Ikigai gently unlocks simple secrets we can all use to live long, meaningful, happy lives. Science-based studies weave beautifully into honest, straight-talking conversation.... Warm, patient, and kind, this book pulls you gently along your own journey rather than pushing you from behind." (Neil Pasricha, best-selling author of The Happiness Equation)

あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin.

The international bestseller.

We all have an ikigai.

It's the Japanese word for ‘a reason to live’ or ‘a reason to jump out of bed in the morning’. 

It’s the place where your needs, desires, ambitions and satisfaction meet. A place of balance. Small wonder that finding your ikigai is closely linked to living longer.

Finding your ikigai is easier than you might think. This audiobook will help you work out what your own ikigai really is and equip you to change your life. You have a purpose in this world: your skills, your interests, your desires and your history have made you the perfect candidate for something. All you have to do is find it.

Do that and you can make every single day of your life joyful and meaningful.

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.

Was Enlightening

Liked the book. I thought it’s only about Japanese way of meaning of life. But they also include some scientific research, Chinese and Indian wisdom. Overall that’s a great one if you’re looking for a meaningful life!

Great book, new found love for Japanese culture

I find this book quite relaxing to listen to, plenty of little information on how to make your life better but small changes that we can do right now.

Good advice under a pile of pseudo-scientific...

If you are the type who believes advice "do x because long living people also do it!" Then this book is going to be a good read for you. In the other case, there are quite a few nuggets of good advice but you'll need good patience in order to find it.

Pearls of wisdom hidden only if you can find them and practice them. My experience had been fulfilling. I will read again and make notes to find the Pearl that I am.

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.

Narration well done.

Superficial

Very superficial - no significant depth in any of the topics approached. Pseudo scientific statements with no reference to actual studies and sometimes inaccurate. Hard to distinguish between evidence-based observations and their narrative.

Nice overview, somewhat unscientific

I liked the book, but it was not very information dense. It gives a nice overview of all aspects of living a good life. However it did put too much emphasise on personal accounts and correlation rather than causation which made it somewhat scientifically dubious. Good listen though!

Really enjoyable and well written

I loved this book, it had a lot of interesting facts and quotes. Also it had a lot of cultural references that give you an insight into not only how others live more peacefully but into how you can live more peacefully yourself.

Very interesting but a little slow.

It was really interesting learning about other people’s way of life and theories. There was just a couple chapters where exercises were described and, for me, those were a little slow. Overall fantastic book! I will no doubt listen to it again!

Helpful if I was an elderly Japanese villager!

Not at all what I was expecting. Nothing about discovering or striving to find your Ikigai. All about how to grow old & be happy in a Japanese village, don’t see how I could apply much of this in western suburbia.

Find it! If you haven’t already found it. What’s your ikigai?

I really loved this deep dive into the Japanese secret of living a full and happy life. I stumbled upon this concept as a way of life when combine with being on a hero’s journey so I’m really glad that this book was written, it’s one that I believe every man woman and child should read, then the world will be a better place.

short and sweet

I enjoyed this short story of ideas about life from the Japanese perspective.
I've been to Japan recently for a holiday and I was fascinated by the way they go about their daily lives. obviously some things didn't resonant with me but the concepts covered in this book I could totally relate to.
I would probably have struggled with some of the concepts if I was reading this when I was younger and immature.

however, my daughter said she totally got this because she had been to Japan so was immersed in the culture - she's 19.

the narrator was lovely to listen to as well.

Enjoyed this book

Despite the extremely mixed reviews I read, I decided to give this book a try anyway and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe it’s not exactly what others want and specifically about ikigai but there are a lot of concepts in there to live and long and happy life which I enjoyed listening too. Naoko’s voice is quite soft though so I won’t recommend listening to this when you’re walking on the streets as you won’t be able to hear anything.

simplistic ideas

couple of good, high level points around flow, keeping a healthy perspective and routine, diet and exercise. quite a short book overall though.
