This is a very good book. The aim of this book is to help us to live happier and do not let our problems to steal our happiness and our moments of life. it helped me a lot and now I feel much more relaxed and I feel my life is much more easy going. every one has his own difficulties in his life, but philosophy helps us to enjoy our life despite of our problems. this book is very easy to understand as other books of it's author. I highly recommend every one to read it.
