I read all three of Gretchen's happiness books in the last two years. I started with The Happiness Project with my book club two years ago. I then listened to Better Than Before on Audible and it blew me away! Gretchen has thoroughly tapped into living life fully and getting the most of each day! I listened to Happier At Home most recently and it was excellent. I am going to have to relisten when I can take notes! One small issue I had was it was not Gretchen's voice this time. I had grown used to her frank manner in Better Than Before on Audible, so Kathe's reading, although lovely and eloquent, was not quite Gretchen. I kept imagining how Gretchen would have emphasized a point and then miss the next point. I spend 1-2 hours driving each day, so Audible is a great way for me to keep learning!
Love the book, but should have been read by Gretchen Rubin. This reading was too soft and "late FM" which is really not Rubin's style.
This book is about everyday life and marriage. Gretchen Rubin wrote her thoughts and ideas about how to be happy at home and how to make your home more homey. I like books about life, love, marriage so I like this book.
Like the first book, it really helps you to connect to who you really are in able to help you focus on the things that make you feel good, while removing the things from your life that make you feel bad.
It was very different. It makes the whole book feel less personal than the first book, but she did a great job of quoting the girls.
Being more focused on what I can do in my home, to make my home life happier.
Well done Gretchen!! Can't wait for your next book.
I really like her first book but this book is just about things that happen in her daily life.
Waste of money I can listen to almost anything but could not listen to this. It should not really get even one star.
Yes, but probably only if I could borrow it from the library. This is a good book and a good listen overall. The narrator was pretty effective UNTIL she was called to do children's voices. it was honestly so painful that we had to turn it off. That was unfortunate because rest of the book and the narration were good quality.
This book is packed with useful ideas, thoughts, suggestions to take responsibility for making our homes happier and healthier. Love it! Now I intend to listen to "The Happiness Project."
Although I have both happiness books in print, I own them both on audible. I love listening to the books many times because it really helps solidify things for me. Whenever I do not have an audio book, I turn on Grethchen';s books again even though I have already listened to them many times. I feel like I am talking with a friend.
I love how honest Gretchen is about how she feels as she goes through her daily life.
I like the simplicity of her voice. It is clear and easily understood. This is not a book to be done with drama and she is a perfect reader for this.
I felt like the book was written to me. Gretchen's first book helped me a lot and helped me look at things in new ways. This book hits things right on the head and really put me in my place.
I read a lot and for a book to give me new ideas that I had not though of before is saying a lot.
probably not... I couldn't get through this audible book. I think it may have been better if it was narrated by the author. She read the introduction and had me excited about the book. But then Kathe Mazur started reading and it was driving me crazy. She read too slow and seemed to make the book sound much more serious than I had originally thought it would be.
