In Joyful, designer Ingrid Fetell Lee explores how the seemingly mundane spaces and objects we interact with every day have surprising and powerful effects on our mood. Drawing on insights from neuroscience and psychology, she explains why one setting makes us feel anxious or competitive while another fosters acceptance and delight - and, most importantly, she reveals how we can harness the power of our surroundings to live fuller, healthier, and truly joyful lives.

Who knew there were so many little things we find joy in, and use to promote joy in our environments! I started to recognize why people congregate in certain areas of my house, and how to bring more joy to my visitors, my family, and me! I'll definitely be downloading the PDF so I can look into a variety of artists and designers the author mentions.

I loved everything. The performance was different from many other audio books I have listened to, but then again I usually listen to personal growth books. I would probably listen to this again.

Find your "critical 20%" and transform your time - and life - forever! The 80/20 principle - also known as the Pareto principle - is the well-verified observation that in business, economics, and life generally, about 80 percent of all results flow from a mere 20 percent of our efforts. In this thought-provoking and highly informative program, Richard Koch unveils the secrets to how this mysterious but practical principle actually works... how it is affecting your life right now... and how you can start using it to your advantage.

Skip this book, and just look up a summary online. There's so much filler here, it's as though he's trying to teach us a lesson about 80/20 with his own book.

Superstar comedian and Hollywood box-office star Kevin Hart turns his immense talent to the written word by writing some words. Some of those words include: the, a, for, above, and even even. Put them together and you have the funniest, most heartfelt, and most inspirational memoir on survival, success, and the importance of believing in yourself since Old Yeller.

Any additional comments?

When I saw this book I thought it would be a great reprieve from my more serious personal development and spiritual library. It was that, and so much more. It was in fact, the best auto-biography I've ever experienced. It was uber funny, and personal, and taught me life lessons. It made me a true fan of Kevin's, not just because he's so funny, but because of his character, his shoulder shrug, and his persistence. It's a rare thing for me to connect deeply to someone I have never met, and Kevin accomplished that in this book. I'm grateful he's with us on this planet, making it a better place by helping others to feel good. Kevin Hart...he's got real heart.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you are considering this read, go for it. It's the most profound book I have ever read on unconditional love. It's definitely taken my thought process to an entirely new level. I will listen again and again. I've already been through it 3 times.
