    "The Best Book Ever."

    I have struggled for quite some time, thinking I was never good enough. I got an education, (PhD), I started a couple of business, I volunteered for every organization that could use my skills, and I joined every club that looked like service to others, of little to no avail.. Just when I was about to give up "The Pursuit of Happiness" because I thought there was really no such thing as "Real Happiness." and along came the book, "Be HAPPY". And it changed my life, my thoughts, and my whole make-up. It taught me that I was looking for happiness in All the wrong places. Happiness started with me, because "I AM HAPPINESS", it has been inside of me all along. Thank You Very Much ROBERT, "you Rock"

    "Disappointing"

    It starts out like a standard popular treatment of Positive Psychology, but I ditched it when he admitted his devotion to the Course in Miracles. If that doesn't bother you, give it a try. For me, it was a deal-breaker.

    "engagement needed to get the most from this book"

    In my opinion Robert Holden really knows what hes talking about after working in this field for a long time. There are some real gems of wisdom here, especially his own hypothosis of takling unhappiness. This book is far more than the amalgamation of the many forms scientific and spiritual sources it quotes, as Roberts real understanding gives it so much more. engagement needed to get the most from this substantial works.

    "excellent"

    I enjoyed this programme and whilst it does lead into other potential areas to buy like so many self help reads, its good value for money and there are a lot of very good practical ideas to help you in a search for happiness.

    I would highly recommend

    "Now or never"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Be Happy!: 50 Principles and Exercises to Help You Enjoy More Happiness Now to be better than the print version?

    I like the audio version because you can walk and think. I stop and I write notes into my phone as I go along. My phone is my working memory so that is where I put reminders.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Be Happy!: 50 Principles and Exercises to Help You Enjoy More Happiness Now?

    When it was pointed out that most goals are for future hapiness but that our hapiness score will not change when curcumstances change. We need to enjoy sunsets now not when we have money.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Thiking about the 10 good things that happened in the last week. First you think nothing happened but then you remember the miracles.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Now or never


    Any additional comments?

    Life goes too quickly
