He is credited with influencing how businesses approach company culture and customer service, pioneering a philosophy of happiness above profits.
Hsieh and his cofounder Alfred Lin famously maintained a focus on Zappos' culture after its sale to Amazon in 2009.
"You want to figure out the right balance of profits, passion, and purpose in business and in life," Hsieh wrote.
"You want to create a stronger company culture, which will make your employees and coworkers happier and create more employee engagement, leading to higher productivity," Hsieh wrote.
Hsieh would give out that new version of the Zappos Culture Book to prospective employees, vendors, and even customers.
