This book is in the genre of spiritual/self help. It manages to synthesize all of the recent information on these topics and create meaningful and very specific strategies for attaining peace and happiness. There are also very useful onine tools and exercises included. Overall, Happy For No Reason was the best book I have read in this category because it includes all areas of personal growth and discusses them thoroughly and offers the means to achieve improvement. Most books give a general idea of strategies but not specifically what to do and how to do it.
Shimoff writes concisely yet completely in clear, well understood language.
