Publisher's Summary

From One of the World's Foremost Happiness Experts and Wellbeing Journalists
Voted Number One Happiness Book on Goodreads

After mythbusting what makes us happy, author Will Jelbert reveals the five muscles you can exercise for happiness - the Happiness Animal's five muscles for connecting well. You'll learn to boost your happiness health and build long-lasting strength as you move through five exercises for each muscle, from something as small as giving a stranger a tissue to as far-reaching as creating a statement of your life purpose. Backed by research from the world's leading psychologists and full of entertaining yet poignant anecdotes, this is a candid road map to a better life.

Not for audio

This book has several exercises that are hard to follow with the narration. Also, the narrator is so monotone that it makes it hard to focus with out continually losing concentration on the story.

Not suited to audiobook

This book is really more of a workbook and really isn't suited to the audiobook format. I wish I'd known this before buying it. I think I'd still like this book but in the print format.

Reading with the microphone in his mouth

I am sure there is merit to this book but the narration is SO terrible, the sound so poorly balanced that I couldn't persevere.
