    "More of the Same"

    Another self help book that has been written 100 times before. Just could not even finish it, am glad I didn't pay full price or I would have had to return it.

    "a Sunday sermon"

    I feel like I've been thoroughly lectured by the guy at the pulpit. If I wanted to be told I'd be happy if I prayed to god, I'd go to church.

    "Excellent!"
    Where does Happy This Year! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first audiobook... just what I needed to hear.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was as if he was speaking directly to me. I could really relate to the subject and he gave clear steps to follow to become a happier person.


    Have you listened to any of Will Bowen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was too long for one sitting but I wanted to hurry up and get back to listening to it again.

    "Mind Set"

    It made me think about the things I've gone through and are going through in more depth and from different angles. This audio has helped me focus on the areas of my life that were important to me and to try and keep the bad at bay.

    "Started out well"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    and I high hopes that the inspirational message that the author was trying to convey would continue but it quickly deteriorated into preaching and self-serving examples about what a great moral person he is. Ultimately a disappointment.

    "Nice choice for something upbeat"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Happy This Year! to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Audiobooks are my choice 90% of the time now over print.


    What about Will Bowen’s performance did you like?

    He's upbeat, clear, relatable, not overperforming.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. Perfect book to listen to flying home from New Years vaca, facing back to work first Monday of the year.


    Any additional comments?

    This book caught me just when I needed something like this, at New Years.

    "Yes it's possible"

    Starts well, goes a little bit too religious at times, but overall quite a good listen. Lots to put into practice and lots of practical advice. Ultimately we all want to be happy and it really is a state of mind. Narration by author ok.
