Swallow The Happy Pill: Secrets To True Happiness

"I just want to be happy," a simple goal expressed as though it were the very least we could expect of life. Some phrase it differently, and some attach requirement or specifics to the statement by pre-deciding how happiness must be packaged. Nonetheless it sounds so reasonable an expectation and yet for some reason so many people spend an entire lifetime unable to reach or even discover the first step on the path to this universal desire. Many believe that this illusive state would be possible if they could only win the lottery, inherit great wealth....

Publisher's Summary

"I just want to be happy," a simple goal expressed as though it were the very least we could expect of life. Some phrase it differently, and some attach requirement or specifics to the statement by pre-deciding how happiness must be packaged. Nonetheless it sounds so reasonable an expectation and yet for some reason so many people spend an entire lifetime unable to reach or even discover the first step on the path to this universal desire. Many believe that this illusive state would be possible if they could only win the lottery, inherit great wealth or even perhaps meet the man or woman of their dreams. Essential we all make the same mistake, the assumption that happiness is out there somewhere for us to stumble upon. Happiness is incorrectly seen as a destination that once reached dissolves the suffering and worry of life into the ether forever more.

Happiness is indeed a simple request but most assume it is hidden and only the very few are fortunate enough to discover the treasure map that leads to its secret location. Swallow The Happy Pill will show you that you not already own the map but you are currently standing right on top of the big red X that marks the spot of that buried treasure you crave so much. Discover:

  • How to manifest your dreams
  • The secrets to perfect self-esteem and confidence
  • Stop anxiety and depression before it starts
  • The quite route to freedom and peace of mind
  • How to get every prayer answered every time

The amazing secrets revealed in Swallow The Happy Pill will change how you think about everything; it will shatter your beliefs and dramatically transform your life. This may be one of the most significant books you ever buy.

    "Complete Contradiction to the book Willpower"

    Book was not at all hat I expected it to be and Included to many of his own religious views. Also having just finished the book Willpower found this to be a complete contradiction to it.

    "I like Craig but this is pretty dull stuff"
    What would have made Swallow The Happy Pill better?

    Not so much repetition from other books Craig has written. He repeats so many anecdotes or examples to back up his commentary and you know what he's going to say, word for word, before he says it. This gets very annoying.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Craig Beck again?

    Yes, because I like Craig, but I would need to be a bit more discerning about choosing my titles. I have read a lot of his stuff, but the repetition gets too much.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Use new material.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. This one just isn't very interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Craig has a good voice to listen to, unlike a lot of other audible narrators or authors doing their own material. Just going over old ground gets very old.

    "Far deeper than the the title or any "pill""
    What did you love best about Swallow The Happy Pill?

    Craig Beck ties together so many concepts that resonated with me in this this book. The ideas were not new to me, but the way he pulls them together in this short book is magnificant. I especially appreciated the way he presented the ego and the soul.


    What about Craig Beck’s performance did you like?

    I love his voice and his pace of speaking. I listen to a lot of books on 2x audio because I am very audio focused and like to get the information faster. Craig's pace was perfect on 1x normal setting.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Be aware of your ego!


    Any additional comments?

    My life is far better and happier as I embrace my primary thought events and get in the flow!

    a little tedious at times, but details are necessary.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is definitely worth listening to.

    "Wrong philosophies about life"
    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book because in his other book, ''Secrets Series: Attract The Woman Of Your Dream'' Craig Beck keeps talking about ''Swallow the Happy Pills''. Since I liked the first book I though I might also enjoy the other. Wrong. It's filled with philosophies about life that I just find wrong.

    "Basically a religious text"

    So I listened to this whole book. It's got some good things to say. And it's far and away better then the secret. But don't kid your self, it's just a religious text. It teaches about an afterlife, how to commune with God and the role of sin and the devil (their isn't any, except when it's your ego). In many respects it's just a mishmash of eastern and western spiritual ideas.

    But it does have some evidence driven material. And it has thoughts on spirituality that are interesting. Personally I prefer the work of Andrew Farley and/or "the Great Courses Series" lecture set on 'Mindfulness.' Either could be a reflection on my values going in , I'm a Christian. But no matter your goals it's really just another book that's more to do with the authors values and how they helped him. As a biography of his personal journey I think it has merit. As a prophetic, or self help, text I don't think it's all that.

    "Do not be fooled! Save your $$$ read review 1st"
    What disappointed you about Swallow The Happy Pill?

    1st the reviews. They mislead me and I should be allowed a refund. 2nd. This is copied and pasted. A huge majority of this book is from another book of his! But don't just trust me, go to the other one star reviews. 3rd. It is completely opinionated, no evidence.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Of his. You know he lost credibility with me. I'm not saying I will not buy anything of his again but I will be cautious. I'm gonna read more reviews see where I get an honest feeling. I really felt mislead with so many 5 stars. And the fact so much of this 3hr audible is word for word of another book makes me feel robbed. I will continue to listen to the dating one i have. It's good, but even still I will be way more cautious if I ever buy another dating book from this author. What if he decides to do the something he has done here.


    What three words best describe Craig Beck’s voice?

    British, charismatic, entertaining


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Swallow The Happy Pill?

    I would remove it all. This is a waste, and it shows some of his character. Dude this thing is copy and pasted from other books of his.


    Any additional comments?

    He spends a good hour ranting about religion but it is all opinionated. I felt like i was listening to a teenage kid tell me this is how the world works. He wants to tell me he doesn't believe in Moses and the parting of the Red Sea but he believes in physic powers. And leaving your body and going place to place with your spirit. Does this really have to do about happiness in my life? Well to him it did. He explains that the rules of religion are what keep us from happiness and we cannot be happy, ever truly happy as long as we believe in a god. So religion has a rule I need to believe in God to be happy and the author has a rule I can't believe in God to be happy. Really dude, your saying the Same thing religion is saying. Well this was my review. Buy his dating book. It's good. This is garbage, maybe he owed somebody money and just had to throw something together lol.

    "Incredible book merging the best ideas of many aut"

    The first thing I realized when I started listening to this book was that it was different from most other self-help change your mindset book. I have heard the main points the author expresses somewhere else but he is able to put it all in a new perspective. Even if you listen to NLP books, the power of your subconscious mind and from authors like Abraham-hicks, you should pick this book up.
    Why “the secret” never worked? It’s because you can’t fool your subconscious mind into believing something unless it already believes in it. All the suffering is ego created, a beast that lives in the past or in the future completely ignoring the now. Live the now, the past is gone, and the future does not exists.
    Have fun
