One of the most helpful self help books ever. It is broken down into changing your habits in exchange for better healthier ones a little at a time. The program is 10 weeks. I wish I had bought the journal [if there is one] as I didn't want to write in the charts and what not. ...more

Imagine if Mr. Rogers, that bastion of childhood television programming, wrote a self-help book, and you have this one.

I am very interested in the topic of Happiness and thought a book by the renowned Mayo Clinic would offer valuable insight and/or research into this topic. Sadly neither happened. I felt the book was remedial at best. Can not recommend...actually a waste of my time.

A very good workbook that carries some useful skill sets but more tailored to mid-aged audiences. I do not recommend this book for teens since there is too much of "Dream diminishment talk" that tells you to "just be happy". ...more

Some good advice but mostly too prescriptive, simple and touchy-freely.

Outstanding resource that provides concrete, science-based steps towards greater personal resilience - and thus happiness. I used this as a textbook with students in my resiliency class.
