Detailed information about Ikigai – The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life

The proverb “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” gets thrown around a lot, and ikigai is the complete manifestation of this.

Find out why the Japanese never truly retire (as a matter of fact, there is no real Japanese word for retiring!);  they keep themselves busy and work at what they enjoy every day of their life.

Héctor García and Francesc Miralles, the authors of this Los Angeles Times bestseller, researched this book by interviewing the people living in a small Japanese village and with most 100-year-olds.

Their experience and stories have made this a comprehensive book full of good readings.
