Great book!

I loved this book!.. It is a subject that has definitely been explored in other books, however, I really enjoyed listening to Barry's view of it... If I could change a couple of things about this audiobook, they would be: 1) It would not be abridged; 2) It would be read by the author... Still, it is an excellent book!

this is a good book

However, I highly recommend that anyone who wants to be happy, buy 'To Love is to Be Happy With.' Actually, if you go to the website of the author's institute, you can read the entire book online.
However, you still need a copy. I would love to have that book available here on Audible, though I think I have it memorized! It is actually possible to forget how to be unhappy, and this book is one that can show you how!
