Original book summary overview 

On a morning bus ride like any other, Gretchen Rubin had a revelation: She was in danger of wasting her life. Happily married to her soulmate and living in Manhattan with their two daughters, she didn't have any obvious problems. And yet, was she really happy? What followed was an ambitious project to change her outlook - she would laugh more often, quit nagging, clear away her home’s clutter, be silly with her children, start a blog, and prioritize fun. Over the next year, she focused on a different set of resolutions each month. The Happiness Project documents her honest struggle to change her life in the smallest of ways: by appreciating it as it was.  

Please note: This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book. It is meant as a supplement to, not a replacement for, The Happiness Project.
