Book Description

April 16 2012

What if you could change your life without really changing your life? On the outside, Gretchen Rubin had it all -- a good marriage, healthy children and a successful career -- but she knew something was missing. Determined to end that nagging feeling, she set out on a year-long quest to learn how to better enjoy the life she already had.

Each month, Gretchen pursued a different set of resolutions -- go to sleep earlier, tackle a nagging task, bring people together, take time to be silly -- along with dozens of other goals. She read everything from classical philosophy to cutting-edge scientific studies, from Winston Churchill to Oprah, developing her own definition of happiness and a plan for how to achieve it. She kept track of which resolutions worked and which didn’t, sharing her stories and collecting those of others through her blog (created to fulfill one of March’s resolutions). Bit by bit, she began to appreciate and amplify the happiness in her life.

The Happiness Project is the engaging, relatable and inspiring result of the author’s twelve-month adventure in becoming a happier person. Written with a wicked sense of humour and sharp insight, Gretchen Rubin’s story will inspire readers to embrace the pleasure in their lives and remind them how to have fun.

The best thing to say about this book is that I believe that the author was honest and forthright, showing her flaws as well as her accomplishments. However, her copious notes, tracking and monitoring are reminiscent more of a behavioural study than something that the average person would embrace -- and that's coming from a person who has done research all her life! In addition, I was constantly aware of the fact that she was doing all of that IN ORDER to have material for a book. It didn't "sit we" with me.

This book is for anyone who feels as though they would like to be happier. Gretchen Rubin does an amazing job of synthesizing a wide variety of happiness information and making it humourous and very user-friendly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice book...but beware of one thing! March 2 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed the book but I recommend not to subscribe to the website for mailings. Way too many mailings. Daily postings which at times border on the excessive. Also found it difficult to unsubscribe. A bit over the top...but lots of good daily mental habits to get you where you want to be...a happier state of mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book made me feel joyful July 25 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gretchen Rubin's journey was full of slip ups and mishaps as she strives to become a better person. She chooses topics that affect us all - being more open, more friendly, less gossipy, less naggy. Wanting fewer gold stars. I saw a reflection of myself in her book. Best of all I like her core advice 'be Gretchen' yourself and all else will follow.
