Publisher's Summary

Every now and then a self-help book comes along that questions the very nature of happiness, shakes the very foundation of all the things you hold dear, and forces you to reconsider every assumption you've ever made. This isn't one of those books.

How to Do Everything and Be Happy is a book for ordinary people. With ordinary lives. It's for people who have been ambling along and wondering why they're not - well - just that little bit happier. It's a book for most people. It's a book for you.

Mumbo jumbo and jargon free, How to Do Everything and Be Happy is direct, practical, occasionally witty, and stuffed full of ways to make your life just that bit happier. If you've got a brain in your head, if you can pick up a pen, if you've got half an inkling about what makes you smile, How to Do Everything and Be Happy will show you how to fit those things into your life and, as a consequence, feel much, much happier.

short and simple but good advice

Is there anything you would change about this book?

no

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I thought it was brief but the end summarized the book well.

What does Peter Jones bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Im assuming he read it the way he intended it to be read when he wrote it. I prefer audible books that are read by the authors for that same reason.

Did How to Do Everything and Be Happy inspire you to do anything?

yes, it inspired me to take more action in achieving my personal goals and to live life to the fullest everyday, or at least as much as possible.

Any additional comments?

This book succeeded in addressing a somewhat serious topic with a sense of humor.

Just listening to it made me happy

Not only does the book contain simple but very effective ways to improve your life, the author/narrator makes it a joy to listen to. Feeling blue? Put in your headphones and listen for a bit and you'll be cheered right up. It hasn't taken long and I have been putting his suggestions into action and have made some truly positive and exciting changes in my life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Do Everything and Be Happy?

Too many to list!

What does Peter Jones bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accent and British humor, a must listen instead of read!

"What do you want?!"

Any additional comments?

I have to say my most favorite book from Audible.com, love your voice, humor and of course the topic! I relisten to the chapters while at work, in the car, etc.. Thanks!

Disappointing

I did not find this book very useful. Since I had bought the book, I forced myself to listen to the whole thing, hoping to glean something of use, but was disappointed. One of his main recommendations is to take multiple days off, on a regular basis, for this or that purpose. For those of us who work more than a 40 hour week (or even for those who work just 40 hours) it is not a very practical suggestion. His other recommendations of writing down goals and of affirmations are not new. I cannot think of anything I took away from this book.
