As a nonbeliever, I think this creates unintended consequences that could, but not always, be bad. Basically you need a group of like-minded people that care about each other. Sometimes this is called church, temple, ashram, mosque, etc.(less)

If any of you would have seen me a couple of years ago, you would have spotted me on the prowl of the self-help section of any bookstore. Now I won't even give it a second glance and it's because I came to the realization that other people saw it as lame. It's like openly admitting I'm pathetic and need some serious help. Even if that advice, for lack of a better word, is crap, which I must confess sometimes it is. But why should I feel guilty about this? I mean I'm just trying to improve myself ...more

الكتاب تماما كما يدل عليه إسمه ..
الكاتب درس حياة الأشخاص السعداء وخرج بمئة صفة مشتركة بينهم ،
كل صفة أو فكرة تم ذكرها بشكل مختصر مع مثال بسيط ، هي أشبه بملاحظات لا تتجاوز كل منها صفحة ونصف أو صفحتان ..
عموما كتاب خفيف وجيد ، إن لم ينفع فلن يضر :)

I don't know why I read these types of books, because they usually just leave me feeling annoyed rather than enlightened.

This book is full of simple, common sense suggestions. It includes groundbreaking advice such as get more sleep, eat more fruit, exercise, don't surround yourself with bad smells and be open to new ideas. Who would have thought incredibly obvious things would make me feel happier?

Actually, I want to rant about something small that was mentioned in this because this always rub

I personally think that this is a book that everyone should own. Whenever I feel a bit down, I go to this book and do one of the tips and it always makes me feel better. The information in this book is all backed up by research. It's interesting to look at their findings. I take this book with me wherever I go, because you never know when you need a little cheering up!

انتهيت من قراءة كتاب : مائة سر بسيط من اسرار السعداء للدكتور : ديفيد نيفين ، ترجمة ونشر العبيكان

تقييمي للكتاب ٥/٥ كتاب رائع وبسيط ومركز وتستطيع قراءة أي سر او نصيحة لوحدها دون ترتيب او ترابط

كل سر او نصيحة تحدث عنها الكاتب لا تتجاوز صفحتين وفيها قصة لفهم النصيحة وكذلك دراسة حول الموضوع

ترجمة رائعة من العبيكان ولم اجد كلمات غير مفهومة الا في نصيحة او نصيحتين وبما لا يتجاوز ٣ صفحات

رغم أن النصائح بسيطة وسريعة إلا أنها مفيدة في احساسنا بالسعادة عند ملاحظتها والعمل بها في حياتنا

Concise and to the point, this book lists 100 simple ways to improve your life by increasing your level of happiness. Following each 'secret' you'll find the scientific research to back it up. But don't misread me here; the steps are really simple and easy to apply. Yet these are definitely not your run-of-the-mill, one person's opinion, made-up factoids. And that makes it a great read.

Some of my favorites include reading books and using aromatherapy. Obviously since I was reading that book, I

I basically read this entire book during one commute (it was a long commute involving an unauthorized person on the tracks). The author digests a mountain of academic papers about happiness into 1-2 page anecdotes and guidelines about the kinds of activities and habits of mind that make people happy. I suppose I’m an essentially happy person because most of the things he says seem supremely obvious to me, even if I’m only 95% successful at doing them. (But I don’t beat myself up about being only ...more

Recommends it for: People who like quick snippets of actions leading toward happiness
I like this book, mostly. Mr. Niven gives short snippets of actions that can lead to happiness, followed by a short example of somebody who did or didn't take that action (and the positive or negative consequences that arose), followed finally by a result of a study showing how taking these actions is generally better than not doing so. One concern: It seems that some of the suggestions are very similar to others, and probably could have been combined. Perhaps you could say there are differences ...more

I think it's fascinating that there are psychologists now who are studying happiness. It is neat that they are looking into what healthy people are doing right instead of what unhealthy people are doing wrong.

However -- I thought this book was a bit fluff. It seems like they took a list of the 100 most common traits of happy people, added some statistics and then wrote some little fluffy paragraphs to go with each one.

I liked the list and the statistics, but the little stories weren't so inspir

كتاب مئة سر بسيط من أسرار السعداء، كتاب خفيف جداً ويختزل الكثير من الدراسات المفيدة والتي ان تفكرت فيها قليلاً ستكون فعلاً سعيداً او أسعد.
الاقتباسات التي تذكرت ان اكتبها هي التالية:
"هل ولدت في هذا العالم لتحصل على. سيارة أفضل من جيرانك؟ دع هدفك الحقيقي يوجهك لا المنافسات التي لا تفيدك."
"حاول ان تتحسن ولكن لا تحاول ان تكون كاملاً"
"عليك ألا تعد إنجاز شخص ما دليلاً على أن ما تفعله انت خطأ"

الكتاب محاولة لتوجيه تفكيرنا الى التفكير بصورة اسعد. اعجبني على الرغم من ركاكة الترجمة في بعض الكلمات ككلم

It was one of good self-help books I've ever read. You may apply in your everyday life. The author made good summaries from academic journals. The book is surely readable and interesting though there might be nothing novel. Common sense based. However, the thing is we easily forget such a way to human's well-being. The book may remind me of something important in life. But just a self-help book. Nothing serious but good.

I am intrigued by happiness and the many ways people try and find it, an interest left over from a college course I took called Happiness and the Good Life. This was a small book with a bit of a hokey premise, though it is full of good advice. The chapters were short (about 2 pages each), so they were easy to read but I think I would have preferred a more in-depth look at each of the "secrets" and why they work. Still, I found it interesting.

Privalumas (+): Krūvos mokslinių tyrimų apie laimę ir laimingumą!
Trūkumai (-): Tyrimai 17+ metų senumo (naujausias 1999, vidutiniai apie 1995). Didelė dalis tyrimų kartojasi. Šiaip surašyta taip, kad atrodo lyg nemokamas pamfeltas, dalinamas prenumeruojant tinklaraščius. ...Labai gali būti, kad pradžioje tai ir buvo tai.

Tyrimai - smagu, bet jie velniškai seni, o rašymo kokybė prasta. :'(

فكرة الكتاب تعتمد على نتائج وأبحاث قام بها علماء درسوا السعادة والرضى في حياة الناس ليقوم المؤلف بتلخيصها وعرضها بشكل مبسط في متناول يد القارئ
أظل أرى من وجهة نظري أن السعادة تكمن في تمام العبودية لله، وأن كل تلك الأسرار التي تعب العلماء في دراستها وتحليلها للوصول إلى النتائج المسرودة في كتاب لتقديمها لنا لا يحتاجها إلى من حاد عن فطرته ونسي سبب وجوده في الحياة.

Como a leitora Adalira Morningstar escreveu há dois anos, é um livro de auto-ajuda que... não ajuda. Serviu-me para exercitar a língua, aprender vocabulário. Não tinha outros livros faceis para ler neste momento. Uma estrela para o português usado, outra para o que merece o livro próprio.

This book lists 100 different ways that some people have a better life. Since most of the ways listed are the way you think about the good and bad in your life, this list is more a nose-thumbing to those folks that aren't wired that way.

الكتاب بسيط وخفيف ومليء بالتجارب الحياتية الواقعية. ذكرني بكتب ديل كارنجي
بعض النصائح فيه واضحة لكن المرء يحتاج إلى من يذكره بها من حين لأخر
أنصح بقراءته!

This was an interesting book. Being me, I wrote out a spread sheet with the 100 secrets and the percentage of how much they influenced a person's happiness and then sorted by percentage. Very interesting. I personally do not see most people using the top 12 issues as indicators to use when assessing another person's happiness. Very interesting book.

100 Secrets of Happy People by David Niven
Fabulous read

For some time now I have been fascinated by positive psychology and all those secrets that are revealed to whoever wants to know them.
In fact, when I first Stumbled upon Happiness- a masterpiece by Daniel Gilbert- I thought that the rules should become public policy.
With a friend, we even tried to talk a senator into promoting this idea in the legislature somehow, only to realize how utopic that was.
He said to us in about twenty seconds-

This popped up in our library's recent acquisitions. I was looking for something light and positive to read to pass the time while (impatiently) waiting for books on hold to become available. If I'm brutally honest, I expected it was in that trite, vapid "Chicken Soup of the Whatever" category, and I’d just have myself a good chuckle over it.

What a pleasant surprise.

Niven has selected 100 simple points that research has determined are habits of “happy” people. Each section contains a statement,
