This is a tiny little book. It’s the size of my hand only about 100 pages. You can read it in one sitting if you want. I chose to read a chapter, digest it and then read the next. My husband read it with me and we discussed it, which was interesting.
There were a lot of interesting things in here. A happy person is happy at least 70% of the time. Some of our unhappiness may stem from our beliefs about what we “should” do. I really like that the author keeps it quick and to the point, with one simple example. This book is easy to read and understand and easy to apply the principles of happiness to your own life so you can be happier.
My husband and I read this book together. When he would get home from work, I would read a chapter and we would discuss it and discuss how it applied to ourselves individually and as a couple. It was helpful to discuss this book with someone and to see their perspective on things. This book really doesn’t take long to read so I recommend it to everyone because I am sure we would all like to be happier!
From the Publisher:
Let’s get down to it. Everyone wants to be happy. Seriously.
Happiness may mean different things to different people, and those different people may go about it differently, but in the end we all want it. We all want to feel good.
Despite this…despite us all working so hard to find it, the reality is that many, many of us aren’t happy. Or we’re not as happy as we could be be…as often as we could be. Somehow happiness, a simple concept we learned as children, has become an elusive and frustrating aspiration. And, far too often and without even knowing it, the thing standing smack dab in its way is us.
Tough Truths is a little book that packs a happiness punch, tackling the topic by giving the straight scoop on how we tend to contribute to it…and get in its way. It also provides specific tips, examples, and even one simple mathematical ratio to help you get to greater happiness.
Because, seriously, who doesn’t want that?
I received this book from GetRedPR, Deirdre Maloney and Business Solutions Press in exchange for my honest review.
