Easy read full of pragmatic advice on how to do happiness every day.

This book is awesome. In a very light and humourous style, Hawke tells us how we can be happier on a day to day basis. Not only is this book easy to read its also very useful. I wish I had known about this stuff years ago. It would have made things a lot better. Many thanks!!

There have been many books about happiness and how to achieve it, but this author doesn't only tell us that we should be happy, he tells us 'why' and backs it up with evidence (all the while keeping it an easy and fun read).

I got three main things out of this book: (1) Happiness is not just an end in itself, it is also a means to other ends - like health and productivity; (2) It's not just about 'being' happy, it's about DOING happiness. It reminds me that I have things I can control and manage
