If you were going to buy one book that can turn your life around, I would recommend this one. Many self-help books deal with specific areas of life fulfillment, but "How to Be Happy, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise" is a veritable one-stop shop. Kent McArthur touches all the bases from physical to mental to spiritual well-being and then some. Once you put this book down, you will have a lasting blueprint for success and happiness.
Mr. McArthur, in very down-to-earth, practical terms, shows us how to conquer the demons of self-doubt, procrastination and the other usual suspects that generally hold us back from reaching our full potential. He also shows us how to understand who we really are and even provides a valuable computerized self-assessment tool along with the book that will give us instant feedback on our own personality. He asserts that each of us has a life purpose or passion that must be identified and acted upon to turn your life around. I really didn't understand this critical missing element for me, but now I get it.
This book is for everyone from harried executives to multi-tasked moms. However, if your life is in balance, if you have meaningful goals that support your own individuality, if you have no fears and have a plan to know exactly where you are going in life, this book is probably not for you. If you are like most of us, however, the tips and strategies you get here will last you a lifetime. McArthur tells us we must start treating ourselves better. I would recommend you begin that process by purchasing this book. You, too, can finally be happy, healthy, wealthy and wise. You just have to know what to do.

THE way to creating a complete and happy life. Feb. 13 2006
By Kahuna Keith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read and scanned 1,000's of books related to life and I would rate this among the top 20. It is the most direct way to tie down how you want to live your life and how to create the happiness that we all deserve.

Part of its "beauty" is that it takes one through each step necessary to create what we want, rather than the standard book that might be inspiring but skips many of the practical steps.

It is particularly useful to have the self-diagnostic questionnaires, together with the evaluation and the directions each indicates. Knowing what is important helps one to go through each of the steps in creating full functionality in that area. Worksheets (together with suggested alternatives for selection so you don't have to think up all the traits, values, characteristics, or whatever on your own, often missing some key ones on your own) help one be thorough and systematic so that nothing is missed. Then you end up with a complete plan, where the forms are all provided, that will have you controlling the formation of a new, higher level life.

This is the book I wish I had written (at least until I write THE best life management book in history). I would recommend it for any person, no matter the level of accomplishment. It should be required reading for life.
