Aimee Groth Discussion and Book Signing
University of Minnesota Bookstore
300 Washington Ave. S.E.
Noted journalist Aimee Groth will discuss her book The Kingdom of Happiness: Inside Tony Hsieh’s Zapponian Utopia at the University of Minnesota Bookstores at Coffman Memorial Union on Thursday, March 9 at 4:00 p.m.
Kingdom of Happiness is the story of one man’s quest to create his own nirvana in the desert through social engineering in the name of innovation, fame and fortune.
Groth reports on her experience working with Hsieh as he created a new business culture that promotes a complete rejection of traditional corporate hierarchy and instead embraces self-organization. With interviews from insiders, Groth offers a unique look into the building of a company culture of self-management that prides itself on being one of the world’s happiest places to work.
Groth will sign copies of her book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html.
