Happiness is a Choice Feb 17, 2008
Enjoyed reading this book. Had allot of facts to think and get my mind uplifted.
This book changed my life. Jan 11, 2008
I read this book about 15 years ago. It changed my life. Before reading it I thought happiness was something that happened TO me. Knowing that I had a choice opened me to other choices I never would have made if I had not read the book.
Empowering Stories with Straightforward Techniques...Fantastic!!!! Oct 3, 2007
This book teaches ways to defuse stress and thrive with all of life's challenges. I wish I would have had this book years ago! That said, it's not like someone reads a book and "Poof!" they're magically happy. The individual needs to internalize the information and think "How does this apply to my life? How do I react to things? And how can I use these tools in my daily life?" It just takes practice and the knowledge that if you slip out of the mode for a while, you did not fail..you're doing the best you can and you just get back into practice of making the most of a given situation. This attitude approach is not so much about coping, but thriving regardless of what life brings your way.
Hm. Sep 10, 2007
Good book if you just need a pick-me-up, but I've seen time and time again the effects of brain chemistry and just the way you think isn't going to necessarily heal it. It scares me when a book will put too much faith in mind-over-matter.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!! May 24, 2007
Simple to read, yet full of powerful ideas, this is one of the best books by Barry Neil Kaufman. I keep my copy nearby, so I can dip back into it, and re-read sections often.
