I like the format of these books. They are not onerous to read and contain lots of straightforward tips written in a plain English way. No airy fairy jargon or mumbo jumbo! Easy to carry around too. A book to keep and read when you feel the need. There seem to be 4 of these in a series. There is one on how to be calm (also reviewed), one on confidence (yet to read) and apart from the happy one, also one on how to sleep (which I have no plans to read)

A great book for anyone who is feeling low. The format is absolutely brilliant, it really gave a good kick up the bum to try these tips for feeling great in 2015.

Good book but I thought it would be more easy, many things in the book really didn't make sense. It has good strategies to help you get out from you troubles.

Who doesn't want to be happy? I read my fair share of "self-help books", partly because of my fascination with self development and productivity and partly because of my background in psychology and an interest in how pop-psych does stuff. This book, with it's sunny cover, lighthearted title, and just 160 pages, seemed a perfect book in between more serious reading. I hoped it would come with easy tips and practices on how to cultivate the happy things in your life.

I was wrong. This book is not

There is so much in this that I highlighted that I could quote the entire book! A lot of this was information that I already have heard or knew but it is put in a different way. The entire cognitive behavioral therapy and negative automatic thoughts were my favorite.

Firstly, six years ago I suddenly realized that I didn’t have a positive thought in my skull! It was wearing me down. As I’m sure you can imagine. This goes into explain that negative thoughts, or what they call NAT’s are normal and

Life's little cruelties sometimes makes me bitter and sarcastic, so when I saw the title of this book I, of course, laughed. My inner-cynic thought it was a huge joke. How can a book make anyone happy? Well, inner-cynic, lots of books have made us happy in the past, though most of them were fiction. Still, because I do have a soft spot for self-improvement, I wanted to give it a fair shake. If it was too hokey after the first twenty-five pages (about 1/6th of the book,) I could always decide not ...more

Actually, this book was kinda cute.

On another note, I realized the main reason I keep reading these books (except the fact that I requested them on NetGalley, so I kind of have to anyway) is the writing style. I've never thought I would say this for a nonfiction book, but the writing just flows and I end up finishing the book. Which is funny, because that's not how a self-help book is supposed to work, but it does. Wow.

About the content, I'm not too sure what I'm thinking about it. At first, I t

I think "This Book Will Make You Happy", is a very valueble masterpiece. It talks about how happiness lies internally, not externally, and how to produce happiness by using your mind. I used to be a very quiet, shy and lonely person, but after I met this book, it transformed me into my favorite version of myself. Also, it is one of those books, that no matter how many times you read, you will notice that you stil left some of the knowledge inside the book. Producing happiness on my own is the be ...more

I love these Books! I read the Calm one first & I started, stopped & started this one the same way. But only because I was distracted by other Books!
Again, as with the Calm one, I really enjoyed the chapter structures, the practical advice & the relatable language used to impart all of the information. Some of which we all know damn well-Yet ignore completely when we're feeling unhappy. Some of which you can really relate to & makes you think; 'That actually makes so much sense!'
