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.

    "Didn't like it"

    I'd return this if I could... it seems that I waited too long on that one.

    "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

    "Another Winner!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Swallow The Happy Pill to be better than the print version?

    Craig Beck is good at narrating his own books with his British accent and enthusiasm, that you can not help but love listening to him!


    What other book might you compare Swallow The Happy Pill to and why?

    I've listened to a lot of Craig Beck's books such as "Alcohol Lied to Me", "The God Enigma"and "The Hynotic Salesman", and they all carry very spiritual messages about life, God and happiness! Craig has a way with words and he really gets me thinking! The general message that he conveys in all four of these books is that happiness resides within and that we all have the answers right here and now!


    What about Craig Beck’s performance did you like?

    I think that Craig just has natural enthusiasm and excitement for his ideas on life, and this is reflected in his performance.


    Any additional comments?

    I do love Craig Beck's books on audible and listen to them over & over again with my friends. His books spark some interesting debate! I have also referenced Craig at my meetings and have got quite a few laughs! I don't always agree with him, but he always make me think!

    "This sounds credible."
    What did you love best about Swallow The Happy Pill?

    The authors credible way of presenting his story. No 'mystical' psycho/spiritual babble. I have listened to several books on the same general theme but always get 'put off' by to much 'vanilla' and what seems to me 'unreality'.









    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author. He shared some of his own personal life/story. But not to much and always in context. I turn of many 'spiels' when I have to meet the kids, the wife etc, with the obvious intention to of selling me on the author or product. I switch of then.


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

    Listen to several, I especially like 'Alcohol Lied to me". It's priceless. They are all good and enjoyable to listen to.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Swallow The Happy Pill?

    Many. Craig showed me the way to practice much of what I already knew.


    Any additional comments?

    No BS. He deserves to make a bundle and he is not shy about it....credible.

    "SWALLOW THE HAPPY PILL LIED TO ME!"

    I am half way through this book and so far, about 50% of the material is copied and pasted from the author's other book, Alcohol Lied To Me. In my opinion, this is dishonest! But of course, there will be no guilt on his part as he does not believe in retribution.

    Also, I do not appreciate his negative views on organised religion which, in his opinion, causes untold guilt and suffering for religious souls. Organised religion over the centuries did much to spread civilisation to the populace and has brought happiness and peace to countless millions. Granted there were also horrendous mistakes made as civilisation evolved but this is no reason to throw out the baby with the bath water. A dialectic approach is needed here.

    I do not intend continuing reading the ramaining half as I have already heard most of it from his other book, and I am angry at being bilked. I would like a refund from Audible. No one should have to pay twice for a book.

    "He sounded really, really Bitter"
    Would you listen to Swallow The Happy Pill again? Why?

    Undecided


    If you’ve listened to books by Craig Beck before, how does this one compare?

    Dark, very judgmental but had some good question, that made a person think.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    What did you learn from Swallow The Happy Pill that you would use in your daily life?

    Still listening to it, a bit much to take in on the 1st couples of spins.

    Would you try another book from Craig Beck and/or Craig Beck?

    No!


    Any additional comments?

    I am very disappointed in Audible for not making it clear that this book has atheist teachings in it. How about putting some subcategories in the self-help or ALL sections so people don’t waste their money!!!

    Author tries to ease you in to his beliefs by calling it something different in the first 10 minutes of the book. Then he lets it out. At that point I turned it off and threw away the CD!
