I loved this book. Gretchen is so open about her journey, the struggles and successes. She is a an inspiration for me. I now have my own happiness project in the works! The most important change I've made so far is lightening up with my kids, my husband and myself. We've all had a much happier household for it!

From the Enneagram personality theory, Gretchen is most probably a "1", the idealist or perfectionist. They can be judgmental and critical of others and the world, but once they catch their groove, they really can change the world. I am deeply grateful that Gretchen found her way to make positive change in this world. Her words and experiences have already rippled into positive change in my life. Many thanks, Gretchen!
