The title comes from research that shows people are happiest on Fridays. Pastor Joel Osteen writes how we can generate this level of contentment and joy every day of the week.
Known as a man who maintains a constant positive outlook in spite of circumstances, Osteen has described this message as a core theme of his ministry. Combining his personal experiences with scriptural insights and principles for true happiness, he shows listeners how every day can hold the same promise and opportunities for pure joy that they experience at five o'clock on Friday.

I love Joel Osteen, his message is always great and it's so nice to have him 'speak' for an extended period of time.
Joel's jokes are always great, but really the whole message of this book was great. I don't think I can really pin point one part which was better than the rest.
Joel is a great speaker and although his message would be the same if someone else read it, hearing it directly from him just adds so much more to the book. It's as if he is not reading a book but just speaking directly which is nice.
Sure, you could. I often listen to his sermons which go for between 30 mins to an hour, and they never seem long enough. What we have here is essentially an extended sermon and it's long enough to satisfy, and certainly someone you could come back to after hearing it already.
If you love Joel's sermons, you'll love this book. And if you've never heard Joel's sermons, this is a great place to start!
its the best so far . Its my first book
It is down to earth soft spoken.
I love his humor and passion in his readings
Never give up .
faithful, meaningful, touching
The way Joel reads the audio book is soothing and inspiring.
I am going to concentrate on positive thinking and be "Thankful" for what I have in this life.
I am going to listen to the audiobook again because I enjoyed it that much.
The book makes you think before you react. Great reminder to slow down and enjoy life.

Joel make it personal. It's like he is talking to you, your not just reading a book.
It reminded me that everybody has a story. The reaction of people most of the time has very little to do with me, but my reaction can affect them.
I didn't get the chance to read that book but loved the audio version. I belive it comes from the heart.
COMING FROM DOWN UNDER AND SHOWING ERERYONE IT CAN BE DONE IF YOU BELIVE IN YOURSELF AND HAVE FAITH NOT ONLY IN OTHERS BUT IN GODDDDDDDDDDDD
Remember to put a smile on my face when meeting others.
This book and its teachings really changed how I view my day to day life. Yes, I am ready to decided to be happy everyday! I want all of my days to feel like Fridays!
The points of views.
All of the stories.
Great book to listen to!
Foreign voices become dear friends, whispering in my ear. Some last long after the story has ended, heard, then, by all whom I touch.
I'm a big fan of the notion that all religions teach similar lessons using different language and customs so the fact that this book is written by a Christian did not make it any less useful or interesting for this Jew.
Very uplifting and inspiring
How I can identify with the authors teaching
How to livr a happy fulfilled life!
I love listening to Joel Osteen, he delivers his message with sincerity and a touch of humor. He always puts things into perspective for me. I couldn't stop listening to the book, I wanted it to go on and on and on! I finished and already started over!
