If you follow Gretchen Rubin and listen to her podcast, this is very helpful to have. I enjoyed this and am glad I have it as a reference, as I find a lot of Gretchen's insights extremely helpful to me. I highly recommend it for self improvement and anyone who wants to build better habits and be happier. :-)

You may have heard about Gretchen Rubin and her books on Happiness, Habits, and Tendancies. She also has a marvelous website and podcast. The Best of the Happiness Project Blog is a wonderful way to dip into her writings and get to know Gretchen. Yes, she is a thorough and exhausting researcher and yes, she has a penchant for lists, but she also has a warm-hearted, humorous, understanding and relatable voice. We do want to be happier and Gretchen wants us to be happier. I highly recommend this ...more

An excellent collection of essays for someone who isn't familiar with Gretchen Rubin's work, this book features a series of quick reads on some of her pet topics, including how we deal with expectations and how we pursue methods of becoming happier. If you've read much of her blog or any of her books, some or most of this may feel recycled.

Happiness Project Blog Rocks!

A very insightful read on how one can seek and maintain happiness. The author makes the goal of happiness tangible and truly love her lists. I would definitely recommend this book to my 15 year old daughter.

Loved the book

I enjoyed reading this book. I found useful ideas, insight into my personality, and I enjoyed every chapter. Looking forward to reading more books from Gretchen Rubin.

Long time listener of the podcast, first book of hers that I've read... I will now race through all of them

Perfect Sampling

I have been listening to Gretchen's podcast, so some of these were repeats, but it always sinks in more when I read it and hear it.

I absolutely adore Gretchen Rubin, but perhaps it is because I read all her books and follow her on social media that this book seemed to contain no new information/insights.

As a huge fan of Gretchen Rubin's work, when she announced this ebook I purchased it right away. The Best of the Happiness Project Blog is a fun, informative, and inspiring collection of Gretchen's 38 best blog posts. It is nice to have the posts all together instead of reading through her whole blog. I think this book has something for the avid, daily reader of Gretchen's blog as well as the novice.

A perfect primer to Gretchen Rubin's work. This ten year blog compilation highlights the main points of her three books. For someone wanting a good introduction or a quick (100 page) summation look no further.

I am a Gretchen Rubin fan, having read her three books, as a podcast listener and an email subscriber (though I rarely read them.)

I think this might serve as a pretty good intro to Rubin's work, for those who don't know if they're willing to commit to The Happiness Project and aren't already regular readers of her blog. Mostly familiar material, otherwise.

I know I will revisit this book again and again. I enjoyed each of the focuses for the month, and hope one day to spend time focusing on different aspects of my life too that will bring me happiness.

Love Gretchen

She just always has thoughtful and practical insights to make life happier...or at least to make us appreciate life more!

A nice, quick introduction to Rubin's work - and easier than flipping through her blog. It's given me direction to search out some of her themes in more depth.

Enjoyable. I think I'll go back and write down some of her categories to explore in my bullet journal.

A nice introduction to Gretchen's work but I would always recommend her actual books over these snippets.
