We are completely satisfied with nothing
There is little correlation between the circumstances of people's lives and how happy they are.
This is the repair manual we should have been handed at birth
When you ask people abouttheir most cherished values in life, "happiness" is always at the top of the list. However, unhappiness does not seem to be the exceptional order to be happy, we first have to battle ourselves.
Happiness is an obligation--to yourself and to others
Not only do we have a right to be happy, we have an obligation to be happy. Our happiness has an effect on the lives of everyone around us--it provides them with a positive environment in which to thrive and to be happy themselves.

Let's get real Feb 26, 2008
The book seems to focus on excepting things that you have the ability to change to improve your life. If you really want ot improve your life, make the changes that are neccessary.
Missing tile syndrome... Please.
This book is a MUST HAVE!! Feb 23, 2008
This book changed my life when I first discovered it ten years ago! Although, I have always been blessed with the `happy' gene, I developed a whole new understanding for the subject matter and a new appreciation of just how important it is to our world as a whole. Anyone can benefit from this book. I highly suggest getting one for yourself and one for someone you care about. As Jim Rohn said, you can become a part of someone else's testimonial by changing their life for the better, and you can do that with the simple suggestion of the right book to do that... I believe, this is that book!
Dennis helped inspire me to create the website I launched on the subject of happiness just over a year ago.
Happiness is a serious problem SOLVER Feb 17, 2008
This book was a shot of B12 to my soul....a refreshing relief from "blame and shame" self help books that invite the reader to drag their stuff through paralyzing analysis until the clutter is overwhelming. Personal responsibility. Simplicity. But not an over-simplification of life. Just real healthy revelation in reader friendly format...short, succinct meaty chapters(1-2 pages) that help you eat the elephant one bite at a time. Nice.
This is by far the best self help book on Happiness I have ever read. Jan 10, 2008
The amazing thing about it is that it actually has a lot of humor in it as well! I really enjoyed reading this book and it forced me to re-think about my perspective on the way I compare myself to others. Reading this book will put you on the right track of the happier life train. Choo Choo and Woo Woo! David Jacobson: author of "The 7 ½ Habits of Highly Humorous People"
