Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Personal Development, 2014

A practical, yet inspirational work that proposes it’s the inner world of our psyches that determines happiness, not outside forces. We have control over our own happiness and this powerful book offers concrete advice on how to tap into it and nourish it all year round. The author focuses explicitly on the positive ways we can establish a higher set-point in our thoughts, speech, and actions, resulting in greater sustainable levels of happiness. Regardless of what the year and your life may bring, we can become measurably and sustainably happier.

    "More of the Same"

    Another self help book that has been written 100 times before. Just could not even finish it, am glad I didn't pay full price or I would have had to return it.

    "a Sunday sermon"

    I feel like I've been thoroughly lectured by the guy at the pulpit. If I wanted to be told I'd be happy if I prayed to god, I'd go to church.

    "Excellent!"
    Where does Happy This Year! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first audiobook... just what I needed to hear.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was as if he was speaking directly to me. I could really relate to the subject and he gave clear steps to follow to become a happier person.


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

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was too long for one sitting but I wanted to hurry up and get back to listening to it again.

    "Mind Set"

    It made me think about the things I've gone through and are going through in more depth and from different angles. This audio has helped me focus on the areas of my life that were important to me and to try and keep the bad at bay.

    "esoteric content"

    if you want to be Happy, you need to convince yourself that you are happy already.
    mostly nonsense with a couple of good ideas between.

    "Wow. A book that guides you to be happy"

    A delightful book that give steps on being a happy person. The author talks about habit that give us positive results and how what we think gives us what we see. We are the ones that decide how happy we are.

    "Great information"

    Good book with great information about a guy looking to be happier. The writing seems as if it was his first book, over all conveys a good message through personal story.

    "Yes it's possible"

    Starts well, goes a little bit too religious at times, but overall quite a good listen. Lots to put into practice and lots of practical advice. Ultimately we all want to be happy and it really is a state of mind. Narration by author ok.
